Lest we forget

TODAY, as the world prepares to mark the close of the WWI centenary, we take you to the heart of the Australian experience on the Western Front as never before.

In the groundbreaking ANZAC 360 project, any Australian can travel to the battlefields of France and Belgium in immersive virtual reality 360-degree vision simply by using their phone or tablet — it’s free, simple and stunning.
Full surround vision using drone and ground-level footage lets viewers soar over the fields and explore trenches, bunkers and memorials, while period imagery and video, graphics and sound effects transport you back a century.
Brought to you by the team behind the award-winning AnzacLive, ANZAC 360 is a collaboration between News Corp Australia and the Department of Veterans Affairs, produced by Grainger Films.

The best way to experience it is to download the free ANZAC 360 app from the App Store or Google Play; clips will also be released on AnzacLive’s Facebook page. The app features key sites and events along the Australian Trail of Remembrance — the epicentre of our nation’s struggle in northwest Europe — where 295,000 Aussies served between 1916-18.

Viewers will be taken from the shocking encounters at Fromelles and Pozieres in the 1916 Somme offensive, through the heroic slog of Polygon Wood, Broodeseinde and Passchendaele a year later, to the desperate turning point of Villers-Bretonneux and push to victory begun at Le Hamel in 1918.
