Ataturk Channel and Memorial

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

In a reciprocal agreement in 1985 the channel leading into Princess Harbour was officially named Ataturk Channel whilst the Turkish Government officially named the beach at Gallipoli where the Australian and New Zealand troops landed “Anzac Cove”.

In 2002 a statue of Mustafa Kamal Atatürk was erected overlooking the Channel. Overlooking the Channel also bearing his name, the scenic boardwalk that leads from Albany to Middleton Beach is home to a life-sized statue of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, the President of Turkey from 1923 to 1938. Access to the memorial is from the beach side at Ellen Cove Boardwalk at Middleton or walking along Stirling Terrace from the central business district (a three kilometre trip one way).
