Mr Abbott will also visit the Western Front where an interpretive memorial is in early preparations.

Following Europe, Mr Abbott will then visit New York, Houston, Hawaii, and the White House where his first one-on-one meeting with President Barack Obama will take place since he became Prime Minister.
