Here is an in situ museum assembled by dedicated volunteers. Unlike most museums, this one has a lot of real WWII memorabilia. A lot of it you can touch. There are remnants, medals awards of Australian personnel and also possible evidence of Japanese landings. There...More

History being told by the local volunteers that have preserved a previously top secret bunker. Fascinating talk about the history of the listening station and the importance it played in Australia's security. An excellent museum display in the restored structure. Well worth the deviation off...More

Only open on Tuesdays at 9.30 for 2 hours at a reasonable cost of $5 per person. It was fascinating to read the military history and presented in such a way that time just went.

When in town this is well worth a visit and is a great colloection of a little known aspect of Australias wartime history and defences. Set in its original surroundings in a bunker it adds to the fel of the place.

We have discussed going to the bunker for the past 8 year while holidaying in Mallacoota, finally we made it there last year. Quite interesting there is quite a lot to see and we learned a lot about Mallacoota past.

Not a lot to do in Malacoota if you don't fish. Listed as a major local attraction we visited WW2 Bunker on a Thursday in prime holiday season. Arriving at the complex we found the gate locked and no signage indicating opening hours. A bit...More
