The Museum continuously develops its exhibits, facilities and collection in order to be the principal establishment in Australia for the preservation and presentation of the Nation\'s Lighthorse and armoured heritage.

The Museum is:

- The premier collection of Australian Lighthorse and Armoured Heritage
- An excellent training facility for the Australian Army and the RAAC
- Widely regarded as a world-class military museum
- An important tourist location in the local region


The main attraction of the museum is the vehicle displays. The museum now has over 70 Armoured Fighting Vehicles (AFVs), both wheeled and tracked. Vehicles on display have their origins in Australia, Britain, US, Canada, Japan, Russia, Germany and China.

Many of the vehicles were brought to Australia as trial vehicles or for intelligence purposes. Other vehicles were captured and presented to Australia. These include a Chinese Type 59 tank captured during the Vietnam War and a German 88 mm Flak Anti-Aircraft / Anti-tank gun captured by the Australian 26th Brigade during the battle of El Alamein in the Western Desert during World War 2.

Subject to training commitments current equipment (Leopard MBTs, M113\'s etc) is also displayed in the museum on weekends and public holidays. In addition to the AFV\'s the museum also has on display a collection of more than 15 Artillery/Anti-Armour guns.

Many vehicles were heavily modified to suit Australia\'s unique requirements and these vehicles will be of great interest to overseas visitors.
