ANZAC Rest area

The ANZAC rest area of Sarpi was located next to the current refugee village of Nea Koutali and it housed the ANZAC troops on their return from Gallipoli. The rest area was established in the summer of 1915 as a resting place for ANZAC units that were withdrawing from the Gallipoli front and it was used until January 1916. The current village of Nea Koutali was built in 1926 for housing the refugees from the Koutali island in the Propontis who came to Greece with the population exchange of 1923.
