The Battle Of Coral And Balmoral
An expert-led day tour to one of Australia's most famous battle sites
The engagement called the Battle of Coral and Balmoral was one of the longest and most intense periods of fighting encountered by Australians during their commitment to the war in Viet Nam.
We will take you exploring in the old operational area. You will see where the Australians set up their Fire Support Bases of Coral and Balmoral and you will get a rare insight into the Vietnamese side of the battles as well.
You will spend a day out in the countryside getting a close look at Vietnamese life and culture as getting to Australia's military connections a little better.
