The campsite is part of the complex. It's clearly not their business focus. The facilities are "tired" and in fact some of the plumbing in gents' toilet is unacceptable.

Some people crashed out after that and missed the Australian service at 930 but most were up again in time for the Kiwi service at 1215. Several jets flew overhead during the day, some people woke up terrific thinking we were being bombed and ...
... then the chaos started as the stands began to flood out.
After the Dawn Service had finished it was time for me to start the 8.5 km walk from North Beach to Chunuk Bair. Mum and Teresa were lucky enough to get to go in the shuttle....but not me!!!
The road was absolutely packed, as people tried to make their way along the track, causing everything to back up and move super slowly. The road was laden ...
... br> Our next soldier was Malani’s adopted fella: Private Bobby Moir from Canley Vale in NSW, he was 24 years old when he died between 7-12 August 1915. Through the National Archives I found a note from the Red Cross with an inquiry from PTE Moir’s mother – about whether he was promoted and if he was ‘mentioned in dispatches’. She was keen to hear more news of her boy and the letter was dated 1917 some two years after he died ...
