Overview

In 1985, the Turkish Government consented to give the name "Anzac Cove" to the place where the first ANZAC (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) troops landed in Gallipoli, in April 1915. In recognition of this, the Australian Government built this memorial garden, to honor the heroism and self-sacrifice of the ANZAC and Turkish troops in that battle. The memorial garden surrounds a semi-circular wall. The inside face of this wall bears the likeness of Ataturk, the founder and first leader of Modern Turkey, with an inscription of his tribute to the ANZACS who died while fighting at Gallipoli. The memorial was commemorated on April 25, 1985.
