Did a quick day trip from the U.K when we were there recently. It was worth the long day. An amazing place to visit. Such respect has been shown here in conserving some of our history, along with the history of some allies. Ie Canada...More
This Australian War Memorial and Cemetery also includes the new John Monash centre which is a must visit for any Australian.
The Centre has a very informative Multi media display which is very moving and very interesting.

Passing through Amiens I thought I should have more memories of the place than the Holiday Inn I’m staying in. The military cemetery at Villers-Bretonneux, ten minutes drive beyond the city is on an awe-inspiring scale.
At the far end is the Australian national war...More

What an experience, very proud to be an aussie. We came expecting to see just the memorial and cemetary which was a humbling experience all of its own. Still remnants of the battlefield scars of WW2 with bullet holes. The Sir John Monash centre attached...More
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

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.
