History comes alive – Gallipoli, Before and Beyond

As part of the 100th Anniversary of the landings in Gallipoli, the Geelong Military Re-enactment Group is presenting two days of action and exhibitions at the historic Barwon Park Mansion in Winchelsea Victoria on April 18-19th 2015.

A focus of this major living history event will be the WWI activities of Australian troops in trenches and dugouts where weapons, uniforms, equipment and artifacts common to life in the trenches will be displayed. Action will occur in and around a specially dug trench system with firing of machine guns and personal weapons.

Visitors will also be able to visit the various encampments of soldiers from Napoleonic British and French units, from WWI, WWII Australian, British, US, Greek, Russian and German units and Australian troops from the Vietnam conflict.

Uniforms, weapons, equipment and restored military vehicles including armored cars and tanks will be on display and in action.

A unique feature for the re-enactors will be a 1940s dance to be held in the local Globe Theatre on Saturday 18th April featuring The Swing Sisters and to which the public are invited and encouraged to attend in uniform or period costumes. Cost $30 per adult ($25 pre-purchase) BYO drinks, supper provided.

Gallipoli, Before and Beyond is presented by the Military Historical Society Geelong and the Geelong Military Re-enactment Group in conjunction with the National Trust Victoria, the Surf Coast Shire, Tourism Victoria, Winchelsea and District Community Bank and local businesses.

Entry fees are $15 for adults and children under 16 free. Proceeds from the event will support Legacy, the National Trust and local Winchelsea Community Groups.

Barwon Park is located at 105 Inverleigh Road Winchelsea, Melways X911 B8. Refreshments will be provided by local organisations.
