The Mat McLachlan Battlefields Tours difference:
- Customised itineraries: We can fully tailor your battlefield tour to visit the sites that are most important to you, and to fit in with your budget and curriculum, including academic components such as geography or history tours.
- Immersive Experiences: The Western Front, Life at the Front educational experience is a highlight for every group. Students or cadets spend a full day dressed and equipped as an Australian First World War platoon. They will practice dressing, marching and drilling with authentic equipment on an actual First World War battlefield – we can’t send them back in time, but this is the next best thing! We have similar options in most of our destinations

We also employ some of the world’s leading Historians to accompany our school groups – many are former teachers who are experts in energising and engaging with young people.
