Site information

The Australian National Memorial Site, Villers-Bretonneux
Visitors approaching the Australian National Memorial site from Corbie and Fouilloy on foot will be directed to walk along the road on the opposite side to the memorial. Those approaching from Villers-Bretonneux will walk along the designated bike path to the memorial site. At the end of each pedestrian walk way a Gendarme officer will direct you to cross the road when it is safe to do so and you will enter the promenade area in front of the memorial site via a set of steps. Once on the promenade you should move towards the front entrance steps between the two pavilions. From the front entrance you will access the memorial site and walk 300 hundred metres up a grassed hill through the cemetery to the commemorative site.

4000 temporary seats will be installed at the Australian National Memorial site, Villers-Bretonneux. Reserved seating is only available for official delegates and people requiring assisted seating (see information below). There will be standing room on grassed areas to the side and rear of the seats.

DVA is aware that a large number of those attending the commemorations are elderly and would ask that attendees ensure that those who require a seat are offered one.

Please note that there will be no seating at the Anzac Day wreath laying service in Villers-Bretonneux town on 25 April, nor at the services in Bullecourt.
