Overview

The Australian War Memorial in Villers-Bretonneux commemorates the battle of 24/25 April 1918, when Australian and Commonwealth Soldiers liberated the town. In front of it lie the graves of over 770 Australian soldiers, as well as those of other Commonwealth soldiers. Since 2008 it has been the site of the special ANZAC Day dawn service. Experience this unique event on our six-day ANZAC tour departing 22 April 2019 and join fellow countrymen and local townspeople to remember those who fought during the Great War at one its most poignant sites.
