DISCOVERING THE WESTERN FRONT

Hosted by - RAY MARTIN & MAT McLACHLAN

9 NIGHTS FROM $6,699*pp

The Western Front incl. France & Belgium

Welcome to this one-of-a-kind tour personally escorted by Ray Martin and Mat McLachlan. Ray has been a supporter of Mat McLachlan Battlefield Tours since accompanying us to the Gallipoli Peninsula for the Anzac Day centenary in 2015 and is looking forward to returning to the battlefields with Mat. This itinerary has been hand-picked to explore several areas on the Western Front, uncovering stories of the spirit of mateship and sacrifice along the way. Over 10 days we will visit the key Australian battlefields of the Ypres Salient, Flanders and the Somme, all whilst enjoying an array of special inclusions with our wonderful host, Ray Martin, who will share his love of history, photography and some of his own life stories as a journalist.
