Villers-Bretonneux is an important stop on the Australian Remembrance Trail of the Western Front, a popular route for visitors looking to learn more about that country's efforts in France during World War I. The Australian National Memorial remembers April 24, 1918–the day Australian troops pushed back against the Germans and retook the land they had gained.
But more importantly, the memorial lists over 10,000 soldiers from WWI for whom there is no grave. Also of note in Villers-Bretonneux is the Franco-Australian Museum, located in the Victoria School–by far the most iconic building in the village. Both the memorial and the surrounding cemetery are the setting of ANZAC Day events in France each year on April 25.
