About Us

The Australian Army Tank Museum's mission is to preserve, exhibit and interpret armoured vehicles, artifacts, icons and memorabilia in order to promote and commemorate Australia's Lighthorse and Armoured heritage.

The museum collection ranges from the First World War through to 21st-century advancements.

The exhibition space is divided into four galleries. The entrance gallery, Chavual Hall, features exhibitions focusing on the history of operations from WW1 through to our current deployments, as well as a small arms display.

The outside exhibition area features over 80 armoured vehicles and anti-tank weapons. The military hut exhibition area features the equipment and histories of the Royal Australian Artillery, while the Ray Keen Hanger features an Explosive Ordinance (EO) display, as well as vehicle technology and radio displays.

Our collection includes:

  • Australian Light Horse collection

  • Small arms and anti-tank weapons

  • Australian armour during WWII and Vietnam

  • A lethality display, demonstrating the impact of various weapons on an armoured plate.

  • Plus over 80 armoured fighting vehicles and anti-armour weapons
