Australians planning to attend Anzac Day commemorations at Gallipoli in 2015 will soon be able to apply for the ballot.

The Anzac Commemorative Site at Gallipoli can safely, securely and comfortably accommodate 10,500 people. In 2015, this will comprise places for 8,000 Australians, 2,000 New Zealanders and up to 500 official representatives of the countries that served in the Gallipoli campaign.

Some of the places available to Australians will be reserved for special representatives including: widows of Australian First World War veterans, direct descendants of veterans of the Gallipoli campaign, the veteran community and secondary school students. The remaining places will be available for all Australians.
