The old Artillery Barracks in Fremantle (port of Perth) is a must see. The National War Memorial in Canberra stands alone as the best in Australia and one of the best in the world. Most West Aussies(sand gropers) don't have an opportunity ti visit our Nations Capital but WA has fine museums and memorials that are well worth visiting. ANZAC... More

Where to start? From the minute I walked in, to the minute I left all the staff were helpful and friendly. Good anecdotes and good explanations of the exhibits. Highlight for me were the 3 Victoria cross and the stories behind them. Cheers to everyone

Nice setting for a tribute to our fallen servicemen and servicewomen. Panoramic view of Fremantle, close suburbs and Rottnest Island (on a clear day).

The museum opens from Wednesday to Sunday only. There is 2 guided tour a day, 10:30am and 1pm. It's $10 per adult. The tour is approx 2hrs. There is plenty of things to see but not enough time. The museum is very informative but you may have to come back a couple of times to really read through everything. Overall... More

A quick 10 minute walk from our Hotel - The Tradewinds. Opens around 11 am. Reasonable admission prices but you need photo ID to get in (Something to do with the heightened Security rating for military properties). The voluntary guides are excellent and the one we had possessed an encyclopediac knowledge of the displays and added anecdotal snippets about many... More

This little, largely volunteer-run gem punches well above its weight. Situated in the Fremantle Army barracks, it has an outdoor display of military vehicles and weapons from conflicts right up to Afghanistan, followed by gallery spaces telling the story of all major conflicts that Australia has been involved in, as combatants or peace-keepers. Really good displays, with lots of dioramas... More

For an operation that appears to be run by volunteers this is well worth the couple of hours you'll spend getting a look at Australia's military history. Some exhibits still to open i.e. Colonial Era and Boer War but plenty of interest for families here

very good display of trench work but not really interested in war which is really being overdone at the moment!

I was really impressed by this. There is an indoor display of artefacts covering all of Australia's wars, and an outdoor area with vehicles and guns. What really makes it work are the (presumably volunteer) guides who are on hand to talk you through the exhibits.
