Mémorial National Australien de Villers-Bretonneux
This imposing memorial, standing behind a vast cemetery, pays tribute to the Australian soldiers who were killed during the Great War. It was at Villers-Bretonneux that they definitively halted the German offensive in April 1918. Every year, on 25th April, Anzac Day is celebrated here.
