Many Australians would be familiar with the feature film Beneath Hill 60 regarding the exploits of the 1st Australian Tunnelling Coy in WW1 . This site is about 15 mins south of Ieper itself , and the tortured nature of the landscape gives you some idea of what went on here . The site comprises of the crater itself , smashed and intact bunkers , various regimental memorials , including one to the Australian tunnellers . Do some reading before though before you go , so you know what you are looking at . I recommend the Australian War Memorial's Battlefield Guide by Peter Pedersen . An indispensible resource .
