Absorb The History Of The Battle Of Long Tan

We’ll continue on to the Long Tan Cross, the most emotional part of the tour. With flowers and incense, we’ll perform a ritual ceremony to show our respect for the people who passed away in this place. After this, we’ll view Horseshoe Hill from the main street because the area itself is protected due to bombs and landmines which still remain buried.
