The Lone Pine Memorial in Gallipoli in Turkey commemorates over 4,900 New Zealand and Australian soldiers who perished in the Anzac area and who have no known grave during the Gallipoli Campaign of World War I.
The Gallipoli Campaign involved troops from throughout the Commonwealth and from France. It was an eight month effort to open supply lines through the Dardanelles and the Black Sea through to Russia and to remove the Ottoman Empire from the war.
The Lone Pine Memorial is within the Lone Pine Cemetery and stands before the front lines of one of the battle sites of the Gallipoli Campaign.
Lone Pine Memorial is within Lone Pine Cemetery in Turkey’s Gallipoli Peninsula. It is approximately 350km southeast of Istanbul, with signs for it along the Eceabat - Bigali road. A popular place to stay is Çanakkale, from which you’ll need to take the car ferry to Gallipoli (ask your hotel).
Open daily. Entry is free.
