Show close time for other time zones
The Australian Government Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) and New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) are seeking expressions of interest from volunteer organisations to participate in activities supporting commemorations at the Gallipoli Campaign Historical Site ("Gallipoli Peninsula") in the Republic of Turkey in April 2018. The Governments of Australia and New Zealand, with assistance from the Government of the Republic of Turkey and local authorities, plan, deliver and seek to continually improve arrangements for the Anzac Day commemorations. The relationship with Turkish authorities is critical to the planning and delivery of the services.
Commemorations conducted by the Australian and New Zealand Governments on Anzac Day (25 April) currently include:
1) Anzac Day Dawn Service at the Anzac Commemorative Site,
2) Australian Memorial Service at Lone Pine; and
3) New Zealand Memorial Service at Chunuk Bair.
DVA and the NZDF are seeking an experienced volunteer organisation to participate in activities supporting Anzac Day commemorations at Gallipoli in Turkey in 2018, with a possibility of an additional five x one year extensions up to and including 2023.
The Gallipoli Anzac Day Dawn Service is one of Australia’s most important overseas commemorative activities. The Dawn Service is broadcast nationally by the ABC. This is a major opportunity for a high quality and experienced volunteer organisation to receive wide public exposure and to be part of significant occasions commemorating the service and sacrifice of Australian and New Zealand service personnel.
