Individuals will travel by bus to the Anzac Commemorative Site, which is accessible from two entrances, both of which are a short walk from the Anzac Commemorative Site. They will overnight at the Anzac Commemorative Site. After the Dawn Service, individuals will need to walk 3.1km up the unsealed Artillery Track. Those attending the Australian Service will stay at Lone Pine, while New Zealanders will continue a further 3.3km uphill along a bitumen road to Chunuk Bair. After the services finish, those who attended the Australian Service will be uplifted by bus at Lone Pine while those who attended the New Zealand Service will be uplifted at Chunuk Bair. All buses will then depart the Anzac commemorative area. Given the number of buses (approximately 300), you may need to wait several hours before your bus departs the Peninsula.
New Zealanders planning on attending these services need to be aware they are held in the Gallipoli Historical National Park, which has no permanent infrastructure or shelter. You will be exposed to the elements for between 12 and 24 hours (including overnight). You need to be prepared for and able to tolerate extremes of weather: it can get extremely cold overnight (below 0 degrees Celsius) but very hot and sunny during the day. Rain and very cold wind are possible at this time of year, as is unseasonal heat.
Limited basic facilities like portable toilets, lighting and non-drinking water are brought in to the commemorative sites for the Anzac Day commemorations.
Seating is extremely limited at all services and there is no allocated seating.
Only people with attendance passes will be permitted to attend the Anzac Commemorative Services at Gallipoli on Anzac Day 2015. The Turkish authorities are responsible for the security and policing of the Anzac Commemorative Sites and they will only allow individuals with attendance passes to enter the Anzac Commemorative Site area.
