We walked here from the war memorial, was a good walk but did take some time. We were the only people in the cemetery, which gave us time to walk around. It would be good if there was some more information in the cemetery. If...More

408 Australian soldiers are buried in this cemetery, most of whom died in 1918 during the defense of Amiens. Particularly remarkable was the grave of the soldier who became Australia's Unknown Soldier. A CWGC maintenance crew of 6 people was hard at work on the...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.

Unless you have a relative interred, the magnificent array of CWGC cemeteries can start to blur into sameness, just because of the sheer scale of loss. This one is special on two counts - it is associated with the counter attack by two Australian Brigades...More

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
