Shrapnel Valley

Shrapnel Valley takes place on the Gallipoli peninsula's Dardanelles. It is the second largest Commonwealth War Graves Commission Cemetery where Anzac soldiers are buried; the other one is Pine Cemetery. After the Anzac soldiers landed at Anzac Cove in April 1915, they used the valley as the main route for between the beach and the Anzac sector. On May 18 to 19, 1915, the 5th Light Horse Regiment from Queensland began an offensive through the valley; but they couldn’t succeed in capturing the peninsula. However, those who died here and in other places were brought here and buried. The cemetery can be visited all year round and has numerous visitors during Anzac Day.
