Mallacoota & District Historical Society Inc.
WW2 Bunker, Mallacoota
The Bunker Museum is vital in the understanding and interpretation of Mallacoota’s unique WW2 history and also provides a facility to preserve and display the Society’s local history collection.
The bunker is a restored RAAF Advanced Operations Base, which was part of a chain of high security wartime defence bases located around the Australian coastline. It was the headquarters of RAAF coastal intelligence activity in the region and is of considerable significance in the military history of Victoria.
In addition to an extensive WW2 Military Collection, exhibits at the bunker museum include:
