Know More about this tour

At 7:30AM. We will pick you up at your hotel in Ho chi minh city and head to Vung Tau. After more than 2-hour car ride. We will arrive Long Tan.

Long Tan is deeply etched into ANZAC folklore. In the late afternoon of August 18, 1966, D Company, 6 RAR - despite being heavily outnumbered - fought off a large Viet Cong assault of regimental strength during a grueling three-hour battle.

The first stop on this full-day tour is the former site of Australia's Nui Dat Task Force Base (Nui Dat SAS Hill). The occupation of Nui Dat required the removal of all inhabitants from within a 4 kilometer radius of the base, therefore the people of Long Tan and Long Phuoc villages were forcibly resettled. Little remains of this military camp today except the columns of the main gate. The former runway is now a street in the local village, and the old helipad is now a soccer field.

Afterward, drive past the location of Horseshoe FSB (access is not permitted due to the continued presence of land mines) to the Discourtesy Rubber Plantation. Visit the Long Tan Cross Memorial, a focal point for remembrance, before continuing on to the Long Phuoc Tunnels. Like other tunnels systems found in Vietnam the Long Phuoc Tunnels included meeting areas, first aid stations, and fighting pits. 

Long Phuoc Tunnels is our last stop in a half-day tour to Long Tan Nui Dat. After a short rest, you will return to Ho Chi Minh City.
