Specialities from Picardy

Sandwiched between Normandy and Champagne-Ardenne, the Picardy region of France is home to some delicious dairy products and can sell its fizz as authentic champagne.

Péronne in Picardy

Péronne in northern France, which was famously liberated by Australian troops near the end of World War I, has an ongoing link with Australia after signing a ‘friendship’ agreement with the city of Albany in 2008.


The French town of Villers-Bretonneux in Picardie is twinned with Robinvale (Victoria). It presents itself as ‘a corner of Australia in France’ and is home to the Australian National War Memorial and the Musée Franco-Australien.
