Travel to the Gallipoli Peninsula and pay your respects to the fallen soldiers
Travel to a region associated with one of the most significant military battles of our time. Be guided through Anzac Cove to the battlefields, the Nek and Lone Pine and share the stories of heroism and camaraderie that unfolded among the tragedies of what has become a defining moment in Australian and New Zealand history. Many say that the struggles of Gallipoli marked the birth of a national consciousness among Australians and New Zealanders. This journey provides a great opportunity to pay respect to those who lost their lives and to reflect on what they fought for, and you'll be able to take time out to explore Troy before returning to Istanbul.
A moving and educational experience regardless of your age or background.
Listen to stories of bravery and comradeship.
A quintessential Antipodean pilgrimage, to reflect and pay your respects.
A comfort version of our Gallipoli Short Break – with upgraded accommodation and a private Intrepid Leader from start to finish.
Being a Short Break Adventure, this trip packs a lot into just a few days, including some early starts and late finishes. If you prefer to explore at a more leisurely pace this may not be the best trip for you. Please carefully read the itinerary before making onward travel plans.
Travelling alone? Our Short Breaks are a group tour with independence. While you won’t have a group leader with you for the full duration of the tour, you may be joined by other likeminded travellers to share the journey.
Being an independent traveller, you will have to carry your own bag on and off the bus or ferry, and into the hotel.
