This is the second time visiting, the first being in May 2011. I had managed to find the 6 RAR Diaries from Aug 66 on the Australian War Memorial Webpage and noted down 14 Grid References and downloaded a decent MGRS map. Armed with this inf, a great guide Nam and my trusty GPS, away we went.
The local landowners are now replacing most of the rubber plantation with local produce however have kept an avenue leading from the road to the cross, with rubber trees. It makes the place special. Having looked at both GPS and map, we knew that in the distance, about 200 meters, the battle commenced with 11 Platoon making contact. From here, a little narrative with Nam on what would have occured over the next couple of hours until the arrival of the APC's.
A definite must see.

Went here on ANZAC day 2024. Was worried about access etc, but no worries. Australian consulate confirmed no permits needed now, but it remains private land. Very rough dirt road leads to the site and then a formed/paved footpath to the cross itself. Super easy access and the site seemed well maintained. Very memorable if you have a connection.

There’s nothing to see here except the memorial itself - so do your research and/or take a guide with you.

However - it’s a well maintained memorial and atmospheric even if the battle site itself seems quite changed.

We were touched to be there and combined the visit with a visit to the local tunnels which provided some additional historical layers.

Every Australian should experience a walk through the rubber and banana plantations of Long Tan to pay respect to our own soldiers who gave their lives in the hours of battle in Long Tan. There are tours but you can also speak to Bill Lamb at The Night Bar in Vung Tau. He was a Tunnel Rat back in 1970's.

Do the tour when in Vung Tau, you won't be disappointed. It is very informative and relaxed. Unfortunately the sites of interest are basically bush now, but you get the idea. The staff are usually Australian men with a Vietnamese lady to help assist, they both do a wonderful job - it is a very relaxed tour.

This memorial is erected to remember the Australian killed in the battle of Long Tan. The site is close to the location where the battle took place. Not far from here is the site of the Allied Airstrip and the location of the Australian Allied base. Note that the airfield and base are just locations, no memorial or signage advising their significance. Long Tan has the memorial cross erected to honour the fallen Australian soldiers. You would probably be best to visit the site with a tour.

Did this trip with Warren from VVFCF and his local offsider Ha2. Very informative without being too much. Warren being ex Australian military, gave us a great rundown of what happened in this area. Booked this trip from Australia, and any questions I had were answered promptly. They also picked us up from our hotel at back beach in the air conditioned van. Great to know our money for this tour is being used for a worth while cause.

We organised our tour through Belly's Watering Hole in Vung Tau, and aren't we glad we did. We had 2 Australian guides who were very informative and great blokes to boot. We were fortunate enough to have 3 Vietnam Vets on the tour with us who made it extra special. It's an experience I will never forget.

It's only $60 AUD Per person and all money goes back into helping the community to build houses and help struggling families.

Visit VTVFCF.org for more information or head to Belly's and book directly. They need a minimum 4 people to hire the van so if you give them a couple of days notice they will ask around for others to join the tour.

What more can I say? I knew this was goibg to be something special and I'm say glad I was too young to be involved. Walking down the path to the Cross proved to be very emotional, almost in tears by the time we got there. Able to pay our respects to both our Aussie service personnel and those of Vietnam. Absolute respect for these people ❤👍
