Google invites you to take a virtual trip to Gallipoli this ANZAC Day

By

In the lead-up to Anzac Day, Google Australia has shared some ways that Aussies can virtually follow in the footsteps of those who served in World War I.

Each year, thousands of Aussies travel to Gallipoli to commemorate the heroic diggers.

But what if you're unable to travel to Turkey to do the same?

Well, you can now use Google Street View to virtually explore the eastern coast and embrace the Anzac spirit.

Google has shared three locations to explore as a starting point to learning more about the campaign and the land on which it took place.

These include:

1. Anzac Cove: One of the best-known spots at Gallipoli amongst Aussies. Following the landing on 25 April 1915, the beach became the main base for the Australian and New Zealand troops for the eight months of the Gallipoli campaign.

2. Anzac Commemorative Site: Located just north of Ari Burnu at North Beach, this is where Australian troops and New Zealand troops came ashore some minutes after the first landings in 1915. The site was dedicated to those who served on the 85th anniversary in 2000 in a ceremony attended by Australian Prime Minister John Howard, New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clark and the Turkish Minister of Forestry.

3. Ari Burnu Cemetery: This site was used throughout the occupation and until 2000, hosted the Anzac Day Dawn Service. A total of 182 of the 253 buried here are Australian soldiers – 82 who served with the Australian Light Horse Regiments.

We're told that "Aussies can also take a virtual trip with Google Arts and Culture from the April 1915 landings site, through to the Battle for Chunuk Bair and eventual evacuations".

In addition, the Australian War Memorial details the Anzac Day tradition and why it is so special to Australians.
