Fromelles marks the entrance of Australians into the action on the western front. It was a baptism of fire, with horrendous casualties. Many bodies were interred in mass graves. This new cemetery was built in the last decade and reinterred bodies of soldiers from a...More

Next to the Battle Museum and well worth visiting along with a walk out to the German bunker and Australian Memorial. Make sure you have the booklet that explains it all.

Our guide Greg Celerse provided us with an excellent understanding of the development of the cemetery, its background and its positioning with respect to the battlefields of Fromelles.
