Our guide took us to Hill 60 as part of his tour and it was very informative enabling one to get a real perspective on the strategic importance of this site for all sides. Allows you to appreciate trench life first hand.

We take groups every year here and it always makes a big impression on our visitors. Don't forget Caterpillar Crater when you come here which is on the other side of the rail bridge up a path.
