In 2008 we said good-bye to the beaches of Australia for a new life in France on the Western Front. Together with my wife and daughter, we moved to the beautiful old town of Arras and Sacred Ground Tours was slowly created. I am Phil, an Australian on the Western Front.
Discover the Australian battlefields of France and Belgium. Our tours are for singles, couples and small groups. Whether you are a leisure traveler, reconnecting with ancestors or simply there to experience where history happened.
We are based in Arras, a quick 50 minute train ride from Paris. Pick-up/drop- off for tours is at your accommodation in Arras or at the train station.
Arras is the most beautiful town in the region, full of charm, history and ideally located in the centre of the Western Front. We can recommend or organize accommodation, hotels or guest houses our clients have happily stayed at.
Our choice of three simple Day Tours can be booked individually, or combined for a 2 or 3 day visit to cover all of Australia’s major action across the Western Front.
