  • A huge warehouse full of memorabilia relating to the Vietnam War. Think tanks, helicopters and even a plane in here, all run by volunteers. There is also a great light and sound show. It’s open...

  • This museum is amazing and honours those brave young Aussie soldiers who fought in the Vietnam war. It's full of fantastic exhibits, both full size and professionally built scale models. Housed inside the museum is a Centurion tank, military vehicles, and helicopters, and many other exhibits are outside around the museum. There is even a Canberra bomber being restored that can be seen at the back of the building. The short audio/visual display at the entry is amazing and a must see before touring the museum. There is also many artist's war paintings and historic photos, plus displays of uniforms and medal awards, and a permanent wall plaque display of museum sponsors. It has a really good little cafe and souvenir shop that are both reasonably priced. Well worth a visit.
  • The 18 minute movie with the holograph was worth the $15 entry fee in itself. The welcome home parade at the end of it brought me to tears: so very moving. The actual displays are excellent. Definitely worth a visit...or two!
