Amazing and moving memorial to the Allied WWI fallen - very significant to Australians. Visited right after the 100 year commemorations for the end of WWI, all the crosses had hand made memorial crosses from Australian school children. Too foggy to climb the stairs to...More

Last week was the first opportunity we had to visit the new Sir John Monash Visitor Centre, which opened in April 2018. There are new toilets at the car-park level and a new wheel-chair access up to the front of the Cemetery/Memorial site. However, this...More

Such a solemn place, sweeping views across the Somme valley and back into Amiens. The bullet holes from WW2 are clearly visible and the new John Monash Centre is brilliant- do not miss the theatre showing the battle of VB as it is a highlight....More

Originally came to visit my great, great uncle Robert Helyards grave and ended up attending the 100 year anniversary memorial service. This war cemetery is a poignant reminder of those who gave their lives in order that we might live ours.

An important monument to those who fought and died during World War One. Very special place for all Australians to visit.

For any Australian affected by WW1 this is a worth while experience. It is a testament to the sacrifice of our predecessors and a reminder of the futility of war. The ages of those who rest here makes this a moving and sad commentary experience.

This is a very special and moving place commemorating so many lost Australian lives in the Great War. It is also worth climbing the tower (no lift) as the views from the top are stunning. Not to be missed.

We drove there. The memorial didn’t seem to have much public transport going there. You may find it easier to hire a car for the day.
