Anzac Day Gallipoli FAQ's

Is Turkey safe? I am concerned about Terrorism.

High security operates on Gallipoli Peninsula on the days around Anzac Day. Security is the number one concern at Gallipoli for the Turkish authorities along with the Governments of New Zealand and Australia. Therefore, the Gallipoli Peninsula is probably one of the safest places in the country.

Several checkpoints will be located across the Gallipoli Peninsula prior to accessing the Anzac Commemorative Site, Lone Pine Cemetery and Chunuk Bair where you will be required to produce your Attendance Pass along with the photo ID that you added in your attendance application, such as your passport or driver's licence.

Airport-style screening will also occur, with no liquids, aerosols or gels permitted onto the sites. These will be confiscated by Turkish authorities and will not be returned to you. Please note that any suspicious behaviour or references to illegal activities will not be tolerated and you may be refused entry to the sites. There is no record of any violence at the Anzac Day memorials in Turkey. Please make yourself aware of the information about your visit to Gallipoli for Anzac Day here on the Department of Veterans' Affairs website.
