This museum catalogues quite a fair bit of memorabilia pertaining to the war camps which were set up near Tatura. The material is fascinating - uniforms, stories etc. It also tells the history of the irrigation region.

Wonderful country museum focussing on the WW2 camps in the area that housed POWs and Internees of German, Italian and Japanese backgrounds. Open every afternoon!

A lot of very enthusiastic volunteers are running the museum. It is a lovely place packed with millions of infomations and little things. Presentation of the objects is perfect with attention to details. Don't miss that place while you are in Tatura.
