Why is Anzac day important?
The Australian and New Zealand Army Corps were the brave soldiers who stood, fought and died during WWII (1914). In 1915, Australia became witness to the new army of volunteer soldiers. The brave forces went out to the Gallipoli Peninsula to claim Constantinople, the capital of the Ottoman Empire and one of Germany's allies.
When the Anzacs landed on April 25th, the Ottoman Turkish defenders were ready for the attack. The soldiers knew that winning was impossible. Nevertheless, they continued to fight for 8 months. Notwithstanding the hardships, bloodshed and the loss of over 8,000 lives, the remaining were successfully evacuated by the British.
The story of the soldiers, the ANZAC legends who gave their lives in Gallipoli, hit the hearts of Australians. In 1916, they made April 25th the day these heroes are to be remembered for their sacrifices and their commitment to uphold liberty at all costs.
Today, we hold this special event to remember and express our gratitude to the Knights of Gallipoli who selflessly risked their lives for the common good and for believing that their respective countries are worth fighting and dying for. Thank you. .

Picture taken on fraser island. This amazing little island lies just in front of Hervey bay and Maryborough. Fraser island holds the last pure bread dingo on planet earth. Pretty damn cool, right? 🐕
On avait entendu parler du Cap Hillsborough pour voir des kangourous à la plage et une fois sur place c'est malheureusement un vaste cirque. Nous étions près de 50 personnes sur place pour voir une dizaine de kangourous. Certains donnent à manger aux kangourous pour les voir de près et les caresser alors qu'il y a des panneaux qui l'interdisent...On aurait certainement passé notre chemin si on avait su tout ça #aroundtheworldpix#kangourous#cuteanimals
