National Vietnam Veterans Museum is located in Phillip Island Tourist Road near Helicopter Flights. The National Vietnam Veterans Museum is the only Museum of its kind in Australia that covers a specific period in Australia’s history. The collection spans over 6000 artifacts and exists to permanently record Australia’s longest commitment to any war, a period of ten years (1962 – 1972). It presents the story of Australia’s involvement at a time of deep division among the Australian population over Conscription. The Museum is of great historical and cultural significance for Australians of all ages and also provides a meeting place for Veterans and their families.

An impressive Sound and Light show is one of the highlights of a tour through the museum and for refreshments, the cafe caters for light meals, morning and afternoon tea.

There are also some great wineries to visit for wine tasting on the way to Phillip Island. Enjoy exploring…
