Charles Bean in the Anzac pook (1916) published a photograph of the SS Novian at Anzac Cove on 25 April 1915, with the following comment;
"The sun rising over Chunuk Bair, Gallipoli peninsula, on the morning of 25 April 1915 during the landing at Anzac Cove. In the centre of the photo is SS Novian carrying the headquarters of the Australian 2nd Brigade. At the right is the SS Galeka from which the Australian 6th and 7th Battalions (2nd Brigade) have been landing."

The actual photograph may be viewed on the Association Forum, here;
