Of the 26,000 casualties the Australians sustained, 8000 died. Australian troops fought costly actions at The Nek, Lone Pine and in the foothills of Hill 971, with very little gain. However, they thwarted a Turkish counterattack in May and participated in a failed offensive in August, before evacuating in December 1915.

A memorial at the Lone Pine cemetery records the names of 5000 Australians and New Zealanders with no known graves, who died during the eight month campaign.

For decades Australians of an adventurous spirit have ventured to the site of Lone Pine to pay respects to the many lost and wounded in this conflict. Others have sought out the Lone Pine symbolically planted in Canberra, when the Australian War Memorial was just land set aside in an open paddock.
