The Turks and Germans had standard-issue K98 Mauser rifles. I don't know whether they had the "potato-masher" grenades or not though. They definitely had grenades. They also had powerful guns located on the other side of the Dardanelles which would shoot over the hills.

The Allies had .303 Lee Enfield rifles, naval guns, howitzers and "home-made" grenades they created by putting nails and shrapnel fragments in jam jars and adding cordite.

I would probably say by boat because when they ran out on to Gallipoli i think they had their weapons with them.

No, tanks were not used in Gallipoli, it was an infantry, cavalry and artillery battle.

Primary Australian infantry rifle was the British .303 Lee Enfield bolt action rifle. The Turks used machine guns on the advancing (charging Australians).

The withdrawal method used at Gallipoli was the evacuation method. The ANZAC troops used auto firing rifles to cover the retreat.
