On the long drive between Melbourne and Sydney, exit into Holbrook. Grab a snack and a drink, stretch your legs in the park and climb on the submarine! Information boards are around with the history of the town and of the submarine.

The submarine is half submerged and provides steps for children to access the top and investigate. It’s a welcome stop on the highway for a break and let the kids get out for a bit. It’s a worthwhile stop.

A must visit for all traveling through Holbrook. This has information about both the Otway as well as the Oberon type submarines which you will not find any other places. A great museum.
