Cornucopia’s travel guide

Australia


For many Australians, Turkey means ANZAC Day, commemorating the First World War campaign that cost so many Turkish and Australian and New Zealander lives. They are recalled in the white marble ANZAC memorial in Sydney's Hyde Park, as well as the Auburn Gallipoli Mosque, the largest in the country. The ANZAC Peace Prize is awarded each April in recognition of any "outstanding effort by an Australian citizen who has promoted the concept of international understanding and who, in so doing, has made a contribution to world peace". There is also an annual Gallipoli Art Prize Sydney and Melbourne are the cities where many Turkish families have settled, a large percentage of them from Cyprus.
