The Sir John Monash Centre, built on the site of the Villers-Bretonneux Military Cemetery and the Australian National Memorial, invites you to take part in the ‘Printemps des cimetières’, a national event dedicated to eternal resting places and their heritage.

 

In partnership with the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC), we are offering several guided tours of the Australian National Memorial and Villers-Bretonneux Military Cemetery over the weekend.

These tours will give you the opportunity to discover the history of the site, stories of some of the men who lie at rest here, the architecture and the expertise of the men and women who work for the CWGC. The tours will last approximately one hour. Tours will be available on:

  • Friday, May 20 at 3:30 pm
  • Saturday, May 21 at 11am
  • Sunday, May 22 at 3:30 pm

Booking required. Please book your guided tour here.
