I travelled from Australia for the 100 years anniversary of the battle at Villers Bretonneux. I visited the Adelaide cemetery, which is nearby the Australian War memorial, to pay my respects to a great uncle who was killed in the war and buried at this...More

The Adelaide cemetery is at the opposite end of Villers-Bretonneux - right at the entrance to the town on the road from Amiens. It's a beautifully maintained small Australian cemetery consisting solely of Australian WW1 war dead - whereas the larger Australian memorial and cemetery...More

We found this Military Cemetery very well looked after. It really is worth taking the time visit this important part of Australian History.

Nice British/Australian WW1 cemetery. Halfway the rows of headstones is a special headstone marking the former burial place of the ww1 Australian unknown soldier that now lays buried in Camberra War Memorial. A must see for the Australian WW1 history on the Western Front

All Australians should visit this quiet little cemetery, located on the outskirts of Villers-Bretonneux. It was from here, in the 1990s, that the remains of an Australian soldier were exhumed and re-interred in the War Memorial in Canberra. Set on the side of a hill,...More

Easy to find as you come into town. It's not massive in comparison to other but is well maintained and eye opening.

Adelaide Cemetery is smaller than many of the other CWGC resting places in the area, but for me was the most moving, perhaps because of the intimacy. It was from here that the Unknown Soldier was repatriated to the Australian War Memorial; the headstone indictates...More
