Le Quesnoy is a small fortified town in the North of France, standing on the edge of the Mormal forest and the Avesnois Regional Park.

During the four years of the First World War the town was occupied by the Germany army. The town was liberated by New Zealand troops in the last days of the conflict, on 4 November 1918.

This event was the start of a very special relationship between the town of Le Quesnoy and the people of New Zealand, and Le Quesnoy welcomes several hundred kiwis every year. It is the only French town to be twinned with a town in New Zealand: Cambridge (North Island).

This site was created by the AQNZ for everyone who is interested in finding out more about our very special town.
