For a formally trained military history fan the detour off our most direct route from Bendigo to Wodonga was more than worth the visit. I also quite enjoyed the short drive through the camp, including a siting of two emus. Now that our tanks are...More

A great selection of past Australian used and other countries vehicles. You are able to self pace and do the museum at your own time. Alot to take in and well worth the time. Easily allocate 1 hour for this

A very interesting display of tanks, armoured cars, troop carriers, bridge layers etc. easy stroll around the outdoor section, with most tanks under cover to keep you in the shade. Inside some interesting armaments and stories. Well worth the visit

This museum is inside the barracks, and so you can visit the museum, but not stray elsewhere. The museum has a lot of tanks, and quite a lot of historical items within the museum building, a little about each war Australia has been involved in.

If you like tanks, then this place has more tanks than you can ever imagine. Everywhere you look there are tanks from every different country and era. Exceptionally interesing to visit. We informed the place has about 100 vehicles. Really enjoyed looking around.

You can visit the museum, but not the camp. You have to show ID at the gate & get a pass to go straight to the museum. The museum is open Tues to Fridays I think. The Vietnam Veterans' Commemorative Walk at Seymour is worth... More

Museum is well worth visiting. So many vehicles look at. There is nothing to prearrange. Just check opening times and days, then turn up.
