A huge warehouse full of memorabilia relating to the Vietnam War.

Think tanks, helicopters and even a plane in here, all run by volunteers.

There is also a great light and sound show. It’s open seven days from 10.00 AM.

Heaps of photos and models, the whole centre is full of actual tanks, helicopters and planes.
The volunteers are all very passionate and helpful. Well worth the visit.

We visited with our two children (2&4). They were lucky enough to get to sit in the Bell helicopter thanks to the lovely veteran who volunteered there called Len. He was wonderful with the kids and also took time to talk to us about some of his experiences. It was a fascinating place to visit but at the same time sad to think of everyone who was involved and suffered as a result of the war. Definitely worth a visit and all the better for the great people that volunteer there.

The dedicated staff, some whom volunteer for free, really make this place. They are genuine and really want you to get the most out of the facility. I was chatting to one of the vets and he said they are trying to move even bigger and better premises in the future. Good luck lads. Lest we forget.

Wow! What an interesting and education Museum. Such an extensive display and thought provoking stories of those who served in Vietnam. A must see experience - too much to take in on one visit!
Lovely friendly cafe for lunch too.

From the outside it doesn’t look like much.....really just an aicraft hanger but inside tells the real stories of the influence Australian troops had on the Vietnam war. What they went through etc. captivating.

Wow this place really surprised me. It wasn’t on my radar at all but so worthwhile to visit. Staff are so friendly and helpful all volunteers. Very emotional to see that it took Australia 15 years to welcome the poor Vietnam Vets home.

Having been to Phillip Island hundreds of times This is the first time I’ve been here and it was fantastic. The volunteers here have really done a wonderful job and tell the history of our involvement in this conflict very well. With lots of exhibits and vehicles it is well planned and organised.
Well worth a couple of hours looking around.
