This is the se ond time we have been here and each time the hairs stand up on the arms. There are about 3500 graves here and the bullet holes in the monument from WW2 will cause you to ponder. You cannot help but feel...More
Hill 104 near Villers-Bretonneux is the perfect location for their Memorial. From the top of the Memorial, there are commanding views of the local countryside, which gives a better understanding about the conditions faced in these battles. The Memorial commemorates those Australians who lost their...More
The new Sir John Montash Centre has to be the best World War One museum in France. Opened in 2018 it uses technology brilliantly. I was there for over 2 hours but there’s 5 hours of content. The centre isn’t well signed but it’s entrance...More
We went to Amiens to view a stage of the Tour de France and after looking at the map realised how close the war memorial was to the city so we said we had to go.
20 KLM’s and we were there and so glad...More
We travelled from Australia and made a road trip from Paris to visit this sacred site. Very moved by the enormity of the graveyard. Demonstrates the futility of war.
Impeccably kept graves, gardens and buildings. Climbed the 142 steps to the top of the central...More
We camped in a nearby town overnight so we could get there early for a 9.30 opening. We spent time finding friends relatives, on the walls, video chatting with them so they could see for themselves....very emotive with more than a few tears.
Having travelled to France to visit new Sir John Monash Centre underwhelmed. I had booked, downloaded app and ready to
go but not busy and still waited behind people who hadn’t booked and booking
group tour August . Not my first trip to battlefields so...More
The new memorial does our diggers proud. They are portrayed with dignity and respect. The entire trip around the memorial from the outside monument and wall to the interactive walk-through in the centre is beyond words, the whole thing leaves you with a sense of...More
I travelled from Australia to attend the ANZAC day dawn service at the Australian War Memorial for the 100 year anniversary. When we arrived at 3am it was quite cold and dark but well lit to get there. In the grounds we were given a...More
Nice new building hidden behind the tower of the memorial and past all the grave stones. There is no signage to show you where to go so you have to have downloaded the app on your phone before you come to show you where as...More

Hi, We had a car and we stayed in Amiens and just drove to Villiers Bretonneux, there is parking at the site, although if you are going to go for Anzac Day you may not be able to park there. I do not know which tour companies go there, but there is lots of them.
Very affordable as long as you’re happy to walk from the station. The walk is like walking across an undulating meadow so wear comfortable shoes / boots. The memorial site itself is free admission and the John Monash centre... More
Very affordable as long as you’re happy to walk from the station. The walk is like walking across an undulating meadow so wear comfortable shoes / boots. The memorial site itself is free admission and the John Monash centre is also free if you bring your own headphones for the tour. If not, they sell headphones for about €3 each from memory. You’ll want to do this for the full experience.
