When it's springtime here in our Somme countryside, which has everlasting links with Australia since the fighting days of 1916, Canola is blooming yellow all over, draping the whole landscape in bright shining gold, giving the appearance of a tribute to the many Aussie Diggers who fought for freedom in this land.

With this bright springtime image on our web site, we welcome you to TRUE BLUE DIGGER TOURS, a specialist touring company exclusively dedicated to tours to Australian battlefields and memorials along the old Western Front including The Somme and Flanders Fields and bringing the golden ANZAC LEGEND alive!
Our tours are very unique! We understand that you do not want to waste your valuable time after travelling half way round the world and have found that mixing up a tour coach with different nationalities with different interests is not a really satisfying experience to any single one of them. Because of this, TRUE BLUE DIGGER TOURS focuses exclusively on only the Australian history of the Great War.
Yes we have a deep conviction that the Aussie Digger of WW1 gave birth to the modern 20th century fighting soldier and we can prove this on their historical fighting ground!
I look forward to meeting you in person and guiding you through our battlefield day tours. I meet all my clients personally and pick them up in the TBDT bus which you can see at the top of this page, it is easy to spot with the Australian Flag crowned by the Rising Sun badge. And please remember we provide tours all year round!
