FRANCE - VILLERS-BRETONNEUX MEMORIAL

06/09/2016

Work on the Sir John Monash Centre, to be located at the Australian National Memorial near Villers-Bretonneux in the Somme, commenced in January 2016 and will continue through to the official opening of the Centre in April 2018. During this period, there may be short periods of disruption to visitors at the site and the adjacent Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) Villers-Bretonneux Military Cemetery.

As part of the works, the Australian National Memorial will also be cleaned and refurbished. This will necessitate at times limited access to the tower during the month of September 2017, and over the winter months from 14 November 2017 through to mid-February 2018, the temporary scaffolding and closure of the tower. However, visitors will still be able to visit the CWGC Villers-Bretonneux Military Cemetery and view the Commemorative Wall. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
