We were best mates.  We lived on the same street and went to the same school.  We signed up together and went off to war together.

So begins a poignant story about friendship, as three boys from small-town New Zealand grow up and find themselves young men fighting Turkish soldiers on the Gallipoli Peninsula.  The war will change their lives but, in the true spirit of the Anzacs, the men never forget the importance of their ‘best mates’.

Open daily from 10am to 4pm (except Christmas Day)
