March 28 to May 24, 2015

WWI broke out on a largely innocent world. Given that this year marks the 100th Anniversary of Anzac the Yamba Museum is drawing us back into this horrendous time in history to be seen and understood from a new and different perspective.

The Beneath Gallipoli Exhibition will showcase a collection of stunning photographs of the silent ruins of the underwater battlefield that has remained hidden since the first troop landing at Gallipoli on April 25, 1915.

The photographs taken during a comprehensive underwater cultural landscape survey show the beachheads that provided access, supplies and finally evacuation of the soldiers who faced the enemy and paid the ultimate price for their country.

The collection includes the remains of landing crafts used to ferry the wounded out to the hospital ships, of the Australian Submarine AE2 and sites such as dumping grounds, moorings, and remnants of historic piers and archaeological relics.

These discoveries help us to appreciate what went on one hundred years ago on this now peaceful peninsula.
