ANZAC Cove photo journal.


So I'm back from my week's gallivant in Turkey and the Greek Islands where I spent the majority of the time between business seminars and eating too much and sun tanning on the pristine beaches of the Mediterranean.

The flight over there was pretty relaxed with some amazing views of the Dubai skyline during my stop over. As it happens I literally got off the flight in Istanbul, before being hurried off onto a bus and transported to the conference boat and sailing off into the beautiful European sunset.

So my photo journal beings in ANZAC Cove, where we were lucky enough to commemorate the ANZACs in a private service on such sacred soil. I won't bore you all with my rambling, rather just to take in the amazing memories and views this place had to offer for me.


1. Our boat the Seabourn Spirit, home for the 7 days away in Turkey and Greece.
2. Turkey, Australian and New Zealand flags flying proudly as part of the ceremony.
3. Chairs set up for the special commemoration service.
4. ANZAC plaque upon the sandstone wall that overlooks Gallipoli beach where the Anzacs landed.
5. The three flags, flying high and proud again after the service.
6. Exploring and walking on the very beach in which the Anzacs landed all those years ago.
7. Commemorative graves at Lone Pine for the Australian soldiers.
8. The plaque in which all the names of those soldiers are inscribed.
9. Lone Pine Tomb.
10. Wreaths laid in memory of the soldiers.
11. View from the top of Lone Pine.
12 -13. Chunuk Bair - the resting place of the New Zealand soldiers.
14. View from Chunuk Bair.
