Commemorative services

Long Tan Cross site, Vietnam

The Vietnamese Government has advised that it will not permit official commemorations at the Long Tan Cross site, including on Anzac Day and Vietnam Veterans Day. The Vietnamese Government has indicated that access to the Long Tan Cross site will remain open to small groups of people for contemplative private visits without media coverage, but this may change at short notice. Please refer to the DFAT smartraveller advice regarding this matter.

Consistent with long standing practice, visitors to the Long Tan Cross site in Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province may not wear medals or uniforms, or carry banners or flags. Visitors are asked to behave in a solemn manner, respectful to the wishes of local communities. See the Australian Consulate-General website for further information.
