Northern Gallipoli Battlefields

Northern Gallipoli Battlefields

This battleground is small and confined compared to those in Europe. It is possible to see most of the sights in a day or less. The whole area is a National Park so it is relatively well preserved. There are primitive walking tracks over most of the area.Once one leaves the area next to the bitumen pavement the area is in much the same condition as the Anzacs left it. It is possible to see the eroded remains of the old trench lines, filled with scrubby growth. We found shrapnel balls as we were walking around. One also has to keep an eye out for snakes when walking through the scrub. Some of them are apparently quite aggressive.


This area is very popular for Turkish tourists remembering their victory in the Battle of Canakkale (Gallipoli) and their national hero Kemal Ataturk. However, they seem to keep next to the road and their monuments along the 3rd ridge. Wherever there is a Turkish monument, there are souvenir vendors and rubbish on the ground.
