Nearly a third of those who landed at Gallipoli with the first wave of the Anzac landing on 25 April 1915 were from South Australia, another third from Western Australia. Despite the prominence of the landing in Australian history and culture, or perhaps because of it, it is very difficult to extract the facts of this event from the myths. What was it actually like for those who stepped onto that beach in the pre-dawn darkness on the first Anzac Day? Dr James Hurst, University of Adelaide, explores this question. Bookings essential.
