Tour Description:

The history of Vietnam’s war is not limited to the battle of French colonialism per se. There is also the Vietnam War and numerous internal wars fought between fellow Vietnamese countrymen which has helped shape the society it is today. One of them is the battle at Long Tan, which is known for its iconic battle nature. It is particularly famous because it involved the 1st Australian Task Force army in the process and that it took place in a local plantation. Even recently in 2016, a low-key ceremony was held on the site of the battle to remember its 50th anniversary. It is said that more than 1,000 Australian veterans and their families travelled to Vietnam to pay respect to their fallen fellow soldiers. 

Your tour will begin from your departure from your hotel to Ba Ria - Vung Tau Province by a minivan. Your friendly local guide will then take you to the site of Long Tan Battlefield where you will visit the former 1st Australian Task Force at Nui Dat and learn more about its role in the war fought around the Long Tan rubber plantation area. Once you have learnt more about the war, you will get to visit the Australian Memorial to pay your respect to the fallen soldiers. Established at Long Tan for the 17 Australian Infantrymen and one APC crewman killed in action during the Battle of Long Tan on August 18, 1966, you will get to learn more about the horror of war as you recall the lives taken during the war.
