A small out of the way Museum, only about 20 minutes from Surfers Paradise. They have so much history there, lots of memorabilia. Lots of things to see and read, all wars. Goes right back to the Boer War to Afghanistan. Well worth the visit.

Children are working on assignments for school and found this museum very informative. The items for sale are very competitively priced too.
