Escape Trekking Adventures and its partners bring to you a tour gathers activities, commentary and visits to include locations and happenings that most affected the Australian Imperial Force during their war service on the western front battlefield during 1916-18. The itinerary is a comprehensive as well as entertaining and educational in the treatment of the Australian experience on the Western Front battlefield.

The period 1916 to 1918 saw the First Australian Imperial Force (AIF) in action on the mainland of Europe in Belgium and France after their grueling initiation to battle at the Dardanelles in Turkey. It was here in this theatre of battle that the result of the First World War – The Great War – was decided under conditions often beyond full description and at terrible cost to those involved on the battlefields and those at home in Australia. The Australians and New Zealanders gained worldwide recognition and esteem for their contribution to victory. That legacy remains and commands our respect as we visit the sites where on, over and under those tumultuous events unfolded.

We uncover the Western Front Battlefield in depth with Frank Taylor deliver the programme in high level of historical detail he is renowned for with his Kokoda, Thai/Burma and Borneo tours.
