ANZAC Day commemorates the landing on 25 April 1915 of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps - ANZAC - on the Gallipoli peninsula in Turkey during World War I.  It is a day when Australians and New Zealanders remember those who died and those who served at Gallipoli and in subsequent military campaigns.  The service commemorates their courage, mateship, endurance and sacrifice - the spirit of the ANZAC tradition.
