This place is a monument to those war days that should never close . The history in this place is second to none and irreplaceable. The owner and historian "Bernie Dingle" has the most amazing stories and when you go..... you will be spell bound.

I haven't been to the museum yet, but I see these guys regularly at the Anzac Day Parade. They give a terrific historical context to the parade itself. They deserve al the support we can give.
