The submarine is situated in a park just off the Hume Highway and makes a great stop to get out and stretch your legs whilst driving to Sydney.

A must visit for all traveling through Holbrook. This has information about both the Otway as well as the Oberon type submarines which you will not find any other places. A great museum.

Stopped in this town for lunch & were surprised to find the Submarine Museum. It's an interesting place to visit with a lot of history. The kids would love walking on the sub.
