Two days ago I was privileged to have been able to visit (if only for 30min....my seven year old daughter came along) the Australian Armour & Artillery Museum in Cairns, Far North Queensland.
The Australian Armour and Artillery Museum opened to the public on Saturday the 6th September 2014 and is privately owned and is the largest museum of its kind in the southern hemisphere. They are dedicated to the collection, preservation, restoration and display of Armoured Vehicles and Artillery from the 1800’s to the present day. The collection includes armoured vehicles and artillery from both world wars with a particular focus on WWII. Currently our collection consists of 108 armoured vehicles and artillery pieces, many of which will not be found anywhere else in Australia. I am not much of a tank or artillery man but was very impressed with the collection, which is well worth the visit if you so happen to venture up that way.
