Day 3. 22 April Wednesday
This morning we head to the southern tip of the Peninsula to discuss the British landing area. Our first stop is at Kilitbahir Fort and the Rumeli Mecidiye gun battery for discussions on the naval assaults of 1915. We then move on to Achi Baba, one of the key points on the Peninsula and a British objective on 25 April 1915. Moving further south, visit the impressive Turkish Memorial at Morto Bay, and the French Cemetery nearby. After lunch continue with a discussion of the main British landings at 'V' and 'W' Beaches and a visit to the Commonwealth Memorial at Cape Helles. The day will end with a discussion on the Australian 2nd Brigade attack on Krithia and a visit to Redoubt Cemetery.
Return to the hotel for dinner.
Overnight: Kum Hotel, Gallipoli

Day 4. 23 April Thursday
Today we consider the August Offensive, the last attempt to break out of the Anzac beachhead. Begin at Lone Pine, with the attack by the Australian 1st Brigade. Planned as a 'feint', the fighting there was intense, lasting four days. Next we move to The Nek, site of the disastrous charge by the Australian 3rd Light Horse Brigade on 7 August 1915 and then on to Chunuk Bair, the New Zealand objective and site of bitter fighting, 7 to 10 August. From there gain a different perspective of the land on a guided walk from Chunuk Bair down Rhododendron Ridge to the northern outposts, the ground covered by the New Zealanders in their attack on the heights. Return to the hotel for lunch. This afternoon we visit Suvla Bay, the site of the second major British landing at Gallipoli, mounted in support of the August Offensive.
Return to the hotel for dinner.
