Description

Arrive in Long Tan, deeply etched into ANZAC folklore. Find out how, in the late afternoon of August 18, 1966, D Company, despite being heavily outnumbered, fought off a large Viet Cong assault of regimental strength during a grueling three-hour battle. The first stop on your half-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 for 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 to the Discourtesy Rubber Plantation. Access to Horseshoe FSB is not permitted due to the continued presence of landmines, but don't miss out on learning about this area. 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. At around 1:00 PM, start the journey back to Ho Chi Minh city.
