March 2016 - Work on the new Sir John Monash Centre, to be
located at the Australian National Memorial site near
Villers-Bretonneux in France, commenced in January 2016 and will
continue through to the official opening in April 2018. During this
period, there may be short periods of disruption to visitors at the
site and adjacent Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC)
Villers-Bretonneux Military cemetery.
As part of the works we have just been informed that as from
Monday, 16 May for at least 6 months the car park will be closed at
this site. Visitors will be directed to use the temporary car park
on the other side of the Australian National Memorial. Disabled car
park facilities will also be provided at weekends and outside
working hours when the CWGC service entrance is closed. To add, the
bus turning area on the south side of the site will remain
accessible throughout the works.
