Near Eceabat in Eceabat district, Çanakkale Province, Turkey
This beach, 600 metres long by 20 metres wide was the life line to the Allied soldiers within the Anzac perimeter. Because of Turkish shellfire, supplies could only be landed at night and carried by men and mules along tortuous and dangerous tracks to the front line; casualties were evacuated the same way. The Australian and New Zealand headquarters were located 100 meters from the beach and within 1000 metres of the front line. On the hillside above the beach, thousands of men lived in small dugouts during the 240 days of the campaign.

Also see . . . Anzac Cove - Gallipoli and the Anzacs. During the Gallipoli campaign there was no better-known place than Anzac Cove. It received this name as early as 29 April 1915, by request of the commander of the Anzac Corps, Lieutenant General Sir William Birdwood... Like no other spot on Gallipoli, Anzac Cove has become the image of Anzac. (Submitted on July 9, 2015, by Barry Swackhamer of San Jose, California.)
