Hands-on learning in Turkey, Italy, Belgium and France! Join one of Australia’s leading Gallipoli historians in a journey across this historic landscape. Retrace the steps of the men who fought there, watch history come to life in the gullies, on the ridges and in the waters off Anzac Cove. The experiences of nurses, the international Allied forces and the Ottoman soldiers they battled, are all part of this fascinating history. The Gallipoli study tour also explores Istanbul and Troy and promotes peace and friendship between Australia and Turkey.
After two weeks in Turkey, the study tour relocates to Italy. Our Monash Prato Centre is set in the hills of historic Tuscany and here classes will include excursions to commemorative sites in Bologna and Florence as well as intensive analysis of recently digitized archival records. The final week of the unit tours the Western Front, visiting the key battlefields and museums of Flanders and the Somme and concluding in Paris. ‘Beyond Gallipoli’ retraces Australia’s involvement in a conflict that reshaped the modern world.
