The foreshore at Hallett Cove is undergoing a transformation in time for the 100th Anniversary of the landing at ANZAC Cove in Gallipoli.

A memorial overlooking the sea is currently being built and will be the site of a very special Youth Vigil on the 24th of April and Dawn Service on the 25th.

The area is currently being transformed and, when finished, will include a 13 metre long stone wall, 150 sq metre garden, two flag poles and lighting. The location will evoke the spirit of ANZAC Cove.

Thank you Paula for your information about the Anzac Cove (Hallett Cove) event in April.
I would like to add that at the West Tce Cemetery we have the FIRST dedicated Military Cemetery in Australia, and we will be giving guided tours of the Military section from April 19 on a regular basis. Contact the Adelaide Cemeteries Authority for more information about this tour, and others.

Thank You Jenny for bringing us the ANZAC Day re-enactment. Today, as a Tour leader, I took a group of people around the AIF Cemetery to tell the stories of WW1 soldiers. While on tour I was very honoured to meet the grand-daughter of one our VC recipients Jorgen Jensen VC.
