Excellent display of Australian military history. Recommend a visit even if you have no family military ties.

Wow, I intended to read through all the information about each tank, but it was really a case of information overload. Would love to go back and spend some more time there. A very reasonable price.

A great selection of past Australian used and other countries vehicles. You are able to self pace and do the museum at your own time. Alot to take in and well worth the time. Easily allocate 1 hour for this

A very interesting display of tanks, armoured cars, troop carriers, bridge layers etc. easy stroll around the outdoor section, with most tanks under cover to keep you in the shade. Inside some interesting armaments and stories. Well worth the visit
