Go on an adventure with Digger Quest

Go on an adventure with Digger Quest


Take your family on an adventure at the Sir John Monash Centre with the new Digger Quest app!

The entire Sir John Monash Centre team has been working for over a year to develop this fun and educational application. It is aimed at children aged 6 and over. Digger Quest takes children on an adventure to discover Australia's role on the Western Front during the First World War.

They will have to explore the exhibition to find clues and answers with a tablet. They will then be guided through the center's galleries by the various totems, Australian animals, and will be able to complete their quests at their own pace. 

Armed with their tablet, adventurers explore Australia and discover why this young nation fought alongside the Allies in the First World War.

Thanks to stories told by Australian soldiers and nurses, younger visitors can also immerse themselves in the daily lives of Australians in France during the First World War. 


Practical info:

  • Available from age 6
  • Duration: 45min to 1h
  • Free admission

Somme Battlefields for Peace

Having suffered terribly from the Great War, the Somme cannot forget and remain inactive in the face of the many conflicts that still impact our world. With this in mind, Somme Tourisme wishes to draw on its remembrance tourism activities to initiate a solidarity movement for the benefit of countries affected by the current conflicts.

The idea is to collect funds from tourists visiting the battlefields and donate them to humanitarian NGOs. Until November 11, 2024, the funds raised will be donated to the NGO Handicap International, which provides medical and moral support to victims in conflict zones.

Postcards to Remember

Since the beginning of 2023, Val de Somme Tourist Office joins with Somme Tourism to support the initiative Somme Battlefields for Peace, a monetary fund which aims to make Remembrance Tourism an ethical and responsible form of tourism, with all profits from visits to cemeteries and memorials going to NGOs working in the humanitarian field or specializing in reconstruction on the soil of war-torn countries.

To this end, the Val de Somme Tourist Office has already donated funds raised during last July's "Bagpipes' march", and more recently during the Architecture National Days (Journées Nationales de l'Architecture), during which 3 guided tours of churches in Fouilloy, Corbie and Vaire-sous-Corbie raised over a hundred euros.

Since November 1st 2023, a new initiative has been in place. You can now find a collection of five "Remember to Act" postcards featuring various sites of the Remembrance trail, including the Villers-Bretonneux Australian Memorial, recently classified as a World Heritage Site, in the Tourist Office store. All cards are free of charge. Any donation in exchange for a card will be donated to Somme Battlefields for Peace !
