DARWIN MILITARY MUSEUM
Territory’s military heritage Darwin Military Museum was founded in the mid-1960s by Lieutenant Colonel Jack Haydon and members of the Northern Territory branch of the Royal Australian Artillery Association (RAAA). The association, through its numerous contacts, soon started accumulating war memorabilia from all over the Territory. Since then, several notable local collectors have also contributed greatly to the museum’s exhibits. The museum was Darwin’s first and is housed in the original concrete command post bunker, used by the army to command the two 9.2” guns nearby. The bunker is now fully air-conditioned and displays a fascinating array of weapons, photographs and equipment used by the fighting men and women of the day.
