Paid our entrance money only to find out there are no cartoons. They have been replaced by an art exhibition. Apparently after the art exhibition there is going to be a photographic display. If you want cartoons enquire otherwise you will be disappointed like us....More

What a great find off the beaten path. The bunker was used in World War 2 when our east coast was being attacked by the Germans and Japanese. They have a map showing all the ships that were sunk which is a piece of history...More

A fantastic opportunity to get a giggle. This will keep you entertained for an hour or two. A great way to see our past politics from a cartoonist point of view. Also some great cartoons on our sporting success and failures.

The exhibitions are always changing at the Bunker Cartoon Gallery, so you can visit more than once and not see the same thing. Not only is this a gallery with a difference - it's in a WW2 bunker - it's lots of fun. Nothing boring...More

This is a nice concept, but we found that there were way too many political type caricature cartoons on display. Definitely would have enjoyed seeing more cartoons/comic art on display on the walls as opposed to politicians, etc. The location is also quite cool, being...More
