Overview

Anzac Day Tour in Long Tan would be an unforgettable memory for foreign tourists, especially for those of Australian background. Long Tan Battlefield could be considered as the most famous sites in Vietnam War which took place on August 18th and 19th 1966, in a rubber forest near Long Tan Commune, in the southern Vung Tau. In that battle, a small Australian unit recorded a decisive victory over the big Vietnamese communist forces, but their essential victory at that time witnessed a tragedy lost of 18 soldiers in the age of 18 to 22 years old. This battle also became a symbol of dedication of Australian Army during Vietnam War. Nowadays, Aussie war veterans have visited Cross Campus in Long Tan, Ba Ria Vung Tau for the anniversary.
