Judas & Lone Pine TreesPrint Page Print this page

The Judas Tree from the Shrapnel Gully cemetery, Gallipoli and the Lone Pine Tree commemorate the landings as Gallipoli during World War One. 
 

On 25 April 1915 Australian 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.
