Overview

 

The Battle of Long Tan is the most publicised Australian battle of the Vietnam War. In a decade-long war that, for the most part, consisted of small contacts with an enemy that was reluctant to engage in pitched battles, Long Tan was one of the exceptions.
Long Tan is now remembered as an exemplar of Australian soldiers channelling the same attributes of bravery, teamwork and endurance that their forbears displayed in earlier conflicts.

Itinerary

TOUR PROGRAM

MORNING:

Pick up at your hotel and depart for the trip.

After 2 hours driver we will stop off at Ba Ria to pick up your travel permit to the sites. Visit the sight of the former Nui Dat Task Force Base. Little remains of this camp except the columns of the main gate. The former runway is now a wide street in the local village and the old heli-pad is now a soccer field. A school established by the Australians is nearby. Followed drive past the location of the Horseshoe (access not permitted these days due to mining activity) to the Discourtesy Rubber Plantation. Visit the Long Tan Cross Memorial a memorial raised by the Australians in August 1969 in memory of the great battle of Long Tan , 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.

Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed by our tour guide, Jackie , our names were mentioned on the board and we felt welcomed and with such a friendly atmosphere we had a fantastic start! The guide and tour was extremely good, very flexible (appreciate this!) and for that she deserves a special thanks. We had a great day there, which obviously also added up to the experience. Jackie is such a warm personality and highly motivated guide (recommendable!). I truly enjoyed walking the six of us through the tunnels area. The scenery was beautiful and it was a relieve to walk in such a quiet and peaceful environment. The atmosphere is so special that it really felt interested and curious to all of us. All respect for Jackie who does a great job there; a true sample of excellent tour guide! Many thanks again and I recommend Pioneer Travel Guide JACKIE to everyone!
