Sometimes we think that as Australians, Gallipoli was the big event. A visit to Ypres reveals our men did even more on the Western Front. The Memen Gate at Ypres should be seen by all if possible, so many names wasted. Now on the pleasant side. A lovely town, friendly with great bars and retail.

The significance of Hill 60 in WW1 is huge, yet until our tour guide told us the details I had never heard of it. Apparently even a movie has been made about Hill 60. Visit but also Wiki it for a comprehensive understanding of its significance.

Hill 60 is free to visit, and had no-one else there when we visited in September. You can see bunkers and craters, and can but imagine what it must have been like. Caterpillar crater is right near by and also worth visiting. There is a really small area for parking and a couple of interesting memorials to see.

We visited Hill 60 as part of a group battlefield tour. It has a few memorials to the miners of the tunnels and other units. Over the railway bridge and up a short track you come to a huge crater which you can walk round. Back at Hill 60 you can walk up to the main memorial but behind this... More

Consider the history of this place, men from both sides engaged in tunnel digging under the old railway embankment in an attempt to move forward.

Even more apparent after returning home to watch the film about hill 60. The hill itself has a lot to tell, so much happened here, with an explanation of events it really is something to see.

Definitely worth a look around, craters are astounding, you don't realise the enormity of what happened till you see for yourself.

Pretty cool place to see. Lots of old craters still they from the intense shelling. Takes about 30 mins to explore the whole site. Do not forget to cross the train tracks and check out the giant crater in the woods.
