Fifty years ago, in May/June 1968 Australian soldiers fought their largest, most sustained and arguably most hazardous battles of the Vietnam War. Units of the 1st Australian Task Force (1ATF) confronted regimental-sized formations of the North Vietnamese regular army in fierce actions around Fire Support Patrol Bases (FSPB) Coral and Balmoral in what was then known as Bien Hoa province
The National Vietnam Veterans Museum is holding a commemorative exhibition to mark the 50th Anniversary of the Battle of Coral and Balmoral. A series of photographs, displays and audio visual effects will portray the history, the people and the stories. Unique information and images, hitherto unavailable, will be on display.
This Exhibition will run from Saturday 5 May to Friday 26 October and is included in the price of admission to the Museum. Watch the famous holographic Light & Sound Show. Enjoy light refreshments at the Nui Dat Café.
