  • Off the beaten track getting there but worth the walk. No the usual place to visit as you have to have a guide seeing that it is still a working military base. Never the less worth a visit.  more »

  • Artillery barracks was the first places I was posted to in 1990. Museum is awesome so much Wa army service history. A must see.
  • A facility full of parking bays inside the venue which no one (except volunteers) are allowed to use, pissing off the residents in the street that mostly have on-street parking only.
  • Amazing place to visit great prices and learn so much about history
  • tried to surf the webpage but its not working hopefully you read this review and fix this problem
  • Very nolageable to know what your father's who did everything to keep our land we live in SAFE
