All Camp Gallipoli events will have spaces set aside for camping and there will be entertainment, guests, movies, documentaries and a special Dawn Service on Anzac day, so people can immerse themselves in the ANZAC legacy. All funds raised will go to Legacy and the Returned Services League (RSL).

A Camp Gallipoli event was held in Canberra on Saturday February 14 with a service at the Australian War Memorial. The RSL ANZAC Flame was passed on for it final journey to towns and cities representing the Camp Gallipoli Foundation.  The RSL ANZAC Flame travelled to Canberra last October, after it was lit in Albany, Western Australia, the city from where troops departed a century ago.

Chris Fox, chief executive, Camp Gallipoli Foundation said, “We recognise the uniqueness of the Australian and New Zealand spirit of unconditional mateship. We feel this was forged at Gallipoli in 1915 where race, background and status meant little and mateship, trust and honour meant everything. We are pleased to have corporate sponsors like APN Outdoor onboard to promote awareness of Camp Gallipoli across Australia and New Zealand.”

Richard Herring, CEO, APN Outdoor commented, “We are extremely proud to be a partner of Camp Gallipoli, especially on the 100 year anniversary. The Camp Gallipoli events are a once in a lifetime opportunity for all Australians and New Zealanders to come together and sleep out under the stars as the original ANZAC heroes did 100 years ago. We are pleased to be raising awareness and supporting what is an integral part of Australia and New Zealand’s history.”

The Camp Gallipoli campaign is now live on APN Outdoor’s national advertising network.
