This forms part of the national ANZAC museum site which includes the Convoy Walk. There's a couple of ship's gun turrets, heavy calibre guns, topedoes and the like - some of the guns you can operate (bofers/oerlikon type) which is great for kids. The grounds have picnic areas and places to sit and take in the views, as well as... More

I grew up in Albany and this was one of my favourite places to go, there is so much history here from the war and there are always plenty of helpful volunteers that are willing to tell you all about it. They have done a brilliant job in keeping the grounds spotless and well maintained. There is plenty of parking... More

This location has fantastic views and some fantastic information, in particular indigenous people and there involvement and treatment during these times. Displays are very much hands on all for free (so go on give a little donation).

The scenery is superb of the harbor and historically significant . Used as a base during world war 2 and the last view that Soldiers leaving for Egypt and Gallipoli had of the Australian shore. With the key attraction being the Nationally Anzac Centre. Great restaurant and visitors Centre/tourist shop. You would not be disappointed.

A must see and do! Not to miss on the Barracks! Walk around the grounds of how life must have been for the soldiers during WWI. A true ANZAC historians must do!

the military hardware on display were a fantastic attraction for my two boys who are currently very interested in all things war related from the first and second world war. My seven year old daughter loved it too and she has no interest in war novels.

The main attraction here was the actual military hardware on display, including some naval ship guns, surface to air missiles and, perhaps most interesting, the actual bunkers and gun emplacements built into the side of the hill from the Victoria era onwards. There are some great views to be had of the harbour. While you are here, make sure you... More

Myself and my partner spent a good 10min playing on just one of the guns. All in amazingly good condition. Fun for all ages.
