The Somme Battlefields will forever hold an important place in Australian memory. A century ago, these quiet towns, villages and fields of Northern France witnessed the triumphs, tragedy and unimaginable loss of the Diggers.
Today, a strong connection remains between Australia and the Somme and a journey to the battlefields of the Somme is always a very poignant experience, like the ANZAC Day Dawn Service on April 25 each year at Villers-Bretonneux. The Australian Remembrance Trail highlights the places where Australian soldiers fought and died.
