Trip Planner: South Pacific / Australia / Victoria / Greater Melbourne / Hobsons Bay / Altona / Truganina Explosives Reserve
The Truganina Explosives Reserve was a secure storage facility near Altona in the Australian state of Victoria. It was in operation from 1901 to 1962 to store mainly civilian explosives for mining and construction. The camp included several storage sheds and a jetty, which were connected by a narrow-gauge horse-drawn tramway. Like the Dry Creek explosives depot at Port Adelaide, the site is a testimony to history and transportation in Australia.Add Truganina Explosives Reserve to your Altona travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Altona trip maker app.
