Impact On Australia

The ANZACs made a big impact on Australia. The men went out and fought for our country. For our freedom. They risked their lives everyday, for the Australian community. Without these men, Australia would not be the way it is today.


April 25, 1915, was the day the ANZACs landed on the Gallipoli Peninsula, now known as ANZAC Cove. More than 11,000 ANZACs died on the Gallipoli Peninsula, despite only being there for 8 months. The last surviving ANZAC, Alec Campbell, died on May 16, 2002.

Australia's Involvement In The War

Australians fought with the New Zealands. Their name together was the ANZACs.

Australia's early involvement in the Great War included the Australian Naval and Military Expeditionary Force. On 25 April 1915 members of the Australian Imperial Force (AIF) landed at Gallipoli together with troops from New Zealand, Britain, and France. This began a campaign that ended with the evacuation of troops on 19 and 20 December 1915.
