Gallipoli trip reasons vary

New Zealanders and Australians who join the pilgrimage to Gallipoli for Anzac Day have different motivations, researchers say.

Academics at Auckland University of Technology and Turkey's Canakkale Onsekiz Mart University surveyed 400 people about their reasons for making the journey.

For Australians, it was about national identity and patriotism. For New Zealanders, it was about remembering the dead.
