Australian Remembrance Trail
A really great option for exploring the Australian battlefields of the Western Front is to do a "self-drive" tour along the new Australian Remembrance Trail covering the whole Australian sector of the Western Front.

Driving in France/Belgium
Australian drivers will need an International Driving Permit (IDP) to drive in France and Belgium. These can be obtained from your state automobile club or association, and must be obtained BEFORE you arrive. Cost varies from $A25-50 per person dependent on the state authority.

 Although driving in France and Belgium is the opposite (left hand) to Australia and NZ, driving itself is relatively easy as it is mainly on very lightly trafficked and excellently maintained secondary "A" roads. The motorways (freeways) are superb and not that expensive with the cost being only levied for the mileage you actually use through automatic toll booths at strategic exits off the motorways.

Roads and the provincial cities (Arras, Rouen, etc) and large towns are very well sign-posted and easy to get around in, and of course your car is left hand drive. As well as the freedom to go where you please at your own pace, the scenery is quite magnificent as is the ability to explore out of the way special places and other attractions.

This 200 kilometre Australian Remembrance Trail trail covers 12 separate areas/sites and follows the Australian involvement and battles along the Western Front, starting near Ypres in Belgium and finishing near Bellenglise / St. Quentin in France (or vice versa).

We are delighted to recommend you to the absolute specialists for self-drive WW1 battlefield tours in France and Belgium who can provide you with a tailor made package quote for your self drive itinerary taking in each point of the Remembrance Trail. Please contact Somme & Battlefield Tours  for further details.

With the centenary period for WW1 now in full swing through to 2018, many key areas around the Australian battles on the Western Front are already heavily booked over the spring and summer periods in 2017 and 2018.

We would urge you to contact us as soon as possible if you are contemplating travelling over this period along the Western Front Remembrance Trail.
