ANZAC school trip

As members of the Commonwealth, Australian and New Zealand soldiers formed part of the expedition in 1915 that set out to capture the Gallipoli peninsula in order to open the Dardanelles to the allied navies. The ultimate objective was to capture Constantinople (now Istanbul), the capital of the Ottoman Empire, an ally of Germany. Although the Gallipoli campaign was not a success in its military objectives, the Australian and New Zealand actions during the campaign left a powerful legacy. The creation of what became known as the “Anzac legend” became an important part of the identity of both nations, shaping the ways they viewed both their past and their future.

ENQUIRE NOW

"This trip was excellent, I felt really confident with EA throughout the planning process, there was great communication and they were really oganised. Parents complimented me on how organised the trip was and that was due to EA. The highlight for me was the Battlefields and also the Paris museums."
