ANZAC Cove is a small cove, where the ANZAC Corps landed on the Gallipoli Peninsula. There is a marble memorial above the beach where Ataturk wrote a tribute to the mothers of the fallen allied soldiers:
"Those heroes that shed their blood and lost their lives. You are now lying in the soil of a friendly country; therefore, rest in peace. There is no difference between the Johnnies and the Mehmets to us where they lie side by side in this country of ours. You, the mothers, who sent their sons from far away countries, wipe away your tears; your sons are now lying in our bosom and are in peace. After having lost their lives on this land, they have become our sons as well."
Chunuk Bair One of New Zealand's epic stands on the Gallipoli peninsula was in the heat of August 1915 at Chunuk Bair, one of the three high points on the Sari Bair range. These were the main objectives of the Anzacs' offensive of early August 1915 when they tried to break out of the stalemate with the Turks in the Anzac sector.
Johnston's Jolly Cemetery contains the known graves of one New Zealander. A further New Zealander, who served with the Australian Imperial Force, is known or believed to be interred in this cemetery and is commemorated by a special memorial. 
Lone Pine Cemetery, called this name because of the single tree that grew there. 1.000 soldiers -many of them Australian- is lying this place. Lone Pine Memorial is one of five ANZAC memorials on the peninsula.
