Long Tan & Nui Dat battlefield tour

Full Day Long Tan Nui Dat Battlefield Tour; another day trip to visit Long Tan Nui Dat Battlefield, the Australia’s single most costly engagement of the Vietnam War, with the loss of 18 Australian soldiers.

You will experience:

  • Visit famed ANZAC battle sites in Vietnam
  • Learn about ANZAC’s role in the Vietnamese conflict
  • Pay respect at the Long Tan Cross Memorial
  • See the Long Phuoc Tunnels
  • View the former site of Horseshoe FSB

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. We then travel to Ba Ria for lunch, before returning to Ho Chi Minh City.
