Melbourne Commemorates a Centenary of ANZAC

100 years ago to the day, the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps launched a dawn invasion on the Gallipoli Peninsula in Turkey. This event, which was a human catastrophe and strategic disaster,  has embedded itself in the Australian psyche. This has permeated through all forms of our culture from art and music, from poetry to sport, and of course architecture.

This post is a photographic essay on Melbourne’s commemoration of the ANZAC Gallipoli landings 100 years on.
