Located inside Duntroon area beside the RMC Chapel. This restored chapel was brought in pieces from overseas and rebuilt here as a reminder of the suffering of all the POWs.

Located behind the Chapel at the Royal Military College, this truly a piece of Australian History. Well worth making the effort.

It was a bit difficult to find as you need to drive into the Duntroon Military College and I wasn't sure whether this is allowed (it is) and even within the grounds we were driving around for a little while when we found it. Googlemaps seem to be able to locate it pretty accurately. We visited the chapel on Australia Day and there wasn't a soul around, it's in a really beautiful place I'm so glad I got to see it. There's also a bench near the chapel so one can sit down and reflect. I'm surprised to find so many people visiting the war museum yet not checking out this important piece of history so well preserved?

The chapel is easy to find after driving into the Duntroon grounds. It is a peaceful grassed area surrounded by native trees. It was amazing to experience a respite place my father used during his time as a POW after his return from the railway and before heading off yo Japan and its coal mines.

The Changi Chapel located in the Royal Military College, Duntroon grounds is a well-reserved and peaceful reminder of the suffering and adversity faced by allied POW in Changi, Singapore. The dedication of the volunteers who reassembled the Chapel and maintain it is a wonderful testament to our long suffering POW mates.

This Chapel is THE very one that our valiant men prayed in as prisoners within the evil Japanese run Changi prison. It was meticulously dismantled and boxed to ensure its "survival" and sent to Canberra where it was misplaced for decades. But one of the two men who 'saved'it, Max Curnow Lee, a Freemason, did not give up and it was eventually found and he supervised its reassembly.

We passed this chapel at night, so returned to have a good look during daylight hours. This is the actual chapel relocated from Changi. Steeped in history. As it is located in Duntroon Military Academy you must only go to the chapel and directly out again. Very humbling

I was admiring the entrance. It had lots of windows and lots of light.

There were two chapels, all dedicated to those who fought for freedom. The two chapels were almost the same but not completely.

There were wooden benches and a cross behind the altar.

I liked this church.

A must see!

Visited the church at the ADF Duntroon. Easy to find behind the current chapel in Miles Street. Great church that shows the resilience and dedication of all those incarcerated at Changai. Worth a visit by all
