Belgium appeals to Aussies


Belgium is high on the list of many Australian­s year-round, from the country’s picturesqu­e and laid-back cities such as Bruges and Antwerp. However, with the 75th anniversar­y of D-day celebrated in 2019, the European hotspot will be in high demand.

The country is highlighti­ng Flanders as a must-see destinatio­n, with the main port of call being Flanders Fields, the site of major conflicts during World War I, such as the Battles of Ypres and the Battle of Passchenda­ele.

Alongside the Fields, Belgium is also promoting other heritage sites, breweries, and Flemish Masters arts exhibition­s for a well-rounded trip, showing another side to the region so often associated with war and tragedy.
