The Battle of Coral and Balmoral was Australia's largest battle in Vietnam. The battle to protect the "fire support patrol bases" of Coral and Balmoral took place between 12th May and 6th June 1968. The two bases, Coral and Balmoral, were only 4.5 kilometres apart.
There were four key battles interspersed with multiple smaller firefights.
The 26 days of intermittent fighting at Coral and Balmoral was Australia's largest, most sustained and arguably most hazardous battle of the Vietnam War.
Twenty-six Australians were killed and 100 wounded. It is estimated at least 300 North Vietnamese soldiers were also killed.
