The Hill 60 New Zealand Memorial is located in the Hill 60 Cemetery in the Gallipoli Peninsula in Tukey, approx. 350km southeast of Istanbul. Signposts show the way to the cemetery along the Eceabat - Bigali road. From there, drive through the main Anzac area then for another 15km or so. Note that during wet weather the track is very difficult to negotiate and requires a 4-wheel drive vehicle. Those staying in Çanakkale can take the car ferry to Gallipoli – ask your hotel.
The Hill 60 New Zealand Memorial is open daily. Free admission.
