Our Western Front Tours have been specially designed to make you feel welcome while delivering a unique experience that will stay with you forever.
After Gallipoli, most of the Australians arrived on the Western Front, where they suffered great losses. The Western Front remains a place of special significance to many Australians.
In addition to the annual Anzac Day Dawn Service a number of services will be held in France and Belgium from 2016 to 2018, to mark the 100th anniversaries of significant battles involving Australians.
Boronia Travel Centre will be organising a number of centenary tours to coincide with the official commemorative services on the Western Front. Some tour departures dates have been locked in already, while others will follow in the coming months.
Our current selection of premium battlefield tours to the Western Front include:
- 3rd Battle of Ypres 2017 – 100th Anniversary Tour
- Battle of Villers-Bretonneux – 100th Anniversary Tour
- Battle of Le Hamel 2018 – 100th Anniversary Tour
- End of the Great War 2018 – 100th Anniversary Tour
On 26 September 2017, a service will be held at the Buttes New British Cemetery in Belgium to commemorate all Australians who served in Belgium during the First World War, particularly in the Battle of Messines and the Third Battle of Ypres, known also as Passchendaele.
In 2018, services will be conducted to commemorate the service of Australians on the Western Front in 1918, focusing on Villers-Bretonneux, the site of the Australian National Memorial in France, and at nearby Le Hamel. It is possible that a registration system will be established for the Anzac Day 2018 commemoration (25th April 2018), which marks the date of the 100 year anniversary of the 2nd Battle of Villers-Bretonneux.
We do expect all of our tour departures to sell out. If you would like to be included on the waitlist, please register on our Battlefield Newsletter to get the latest tour updates before the general public.Enquire Now
