This site was created as a joint effort of the New Zealand and Australian governments in cooperation with the Turkish government. It was dedicated by the Prime Minister, Helen Clark, her Australian counterpart John Howard, and the Turkish Minister of Forestry on Anzac Day 2000. They unveiled a plaque stating that the Gallipoli Peninsula Peace Park is dedicated to the pursuit of peace, harmony, freedom and understanding.
