A tour of the Frank Partridge VC Military Museum takes you on a journey that leads from the trench warfare of WWI to twenty-first century combat technology. Located in the historic town of Bowraville, its collections cover all of Australia's armed services and its displays of armoury, uniforms, medals, vehicles, art, publications and memorabilia are the largest on the Mid North Coast. It is a must-see exhibition that brings visitors up close with those who have served Australia since before the days when Anzac became part of our language. Hours: Monday - Friday, 10.00 am - 3.00 pm, Saturday & Sunday 10.00 am - 1.00 pm, or by appointment; guided tours can be arranged. Admission is by gold coin donation.

For a gold coin donation this museum offers very good exhibits and your understanding of Vietnam especially is enhanced by volunteers who are also veterans. Well worth a visit.
