Anzac Day
Australian Memorial in Villers Bretonneux

Australians and New Zealanders celebrate Anzac Day every April 25th. This date celebrates the victory of the Australians against the Germans in Villiers-Bretonneux. It is a commemoration for all soldiers who died in the Battle of the Somme during World War 1 (1914-1918) and for the fighters of the famous Battle of Gallipoli in Turkey against the Ottoman army in 1915.

The Australian state organizes the annual Anzac Day ceremony called “Dawn Service”. This celebration gathers nearly 4000 Australians and New Zealanders.

After the ceremony, you will have breakfast at the Péronne Historial which you will then visit.

On September 2, 1918 the city of Péronne was liberated by the Australians after being occupied by the Germans during most of the Great War.

The Historial of Péronne, located in a medieval castle, was built by the Council of the Somme in 1992. The “Great War” museum offers a very rich collection of objects related to the First World War.
