Overseas Commemorations

The joint Australian and New Zealand Dawn Service at Gallipoli will continue to be held each year at the Anzac Commemorative Site. The commemorative sites at Gallipoli are the sovereign territory of the Turkish people and holding the annual Anzac Day commemorations is only possible with the cooperation and generous assistance of the Government of the Republic of Turkey.

Anzac Day commemorations in France, including the Dawn Service, are conducted by the Australian Government and the local communities of Villers-Bretonneux and Bullecourt.
