Australians "Heartbroken" After Camp Gallipoli In Sydney Washed Out
UPDATE: An event offering the opportunity to "camp out under the stars like our brave ANZACs" postponed due to sodden ground has been moved to a new location.
Camp Gallipoli is billed as "a once in a lifetime opportunity" to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli landing by "sleeping out under the stars as the original Anzacs did 100 years ago."
A video promoting the event says Australians can "camp out like our brave ANZACS did."
In an official statement on the Camp Gallipoli Facebook page, organisers said it would have been "irresponsible" to allow the Sydney event to go ahead on Friday.
People who'd bought $121 tickets said the news was "bitterly disappointing", whilst others were angry that the event had been postponed rather than cancelled.
Many people were asking for refunds.
UPDATE: The organisers have found a new home for the event, at the nearby Entertainment Quarter in Moore Park.
Most people were excited that the Sydney event would still go ahead, posting "That's the Aussie spirit!" on the Facebook page. But you can't please everyone.
