The plaque commemorates the Centenary of the landings at Gallipoli in 1915 during World War One. 

On 25 April 1915 Australian and New Zealand soldiers landed at what is now called Anzac Cove on the Gallipoli Peninsula.

For the vast majority of the 16,000 Australians and New Zealanders who landed on that first day, this was their first experience of combat. By that evening, 2000 of them had been killed or wounded.

The Gallipoli campaign was a military failure. However, the traits that were shown there – bravery, ingenuity, endurance and mateship – have become enshrined as defining aspects of the Australian character

The Gallipoli Campaign was a campaign of World War One that took place on the Gallipoli Peninsula in the Ottoman Empire (Turkey) between 25 April 1915 and 9 January 1916.
