Big Things in Store
- 10:00am to 3:00pm Sun 15 Sep
Nestled within the industrial suburb of Mitchell is a huge purpose-built shed. Within its walls are to be found some of Australia’s national treasures. The Treloar Technology Centre is the Australian War Memorial’s conservation facility and storage hub. Once a year its doors are opened to the public to reveal a vast array of aircraft, rockets, vehicles, tanks, artillery, and equipment used by – or against – Australians in war for over a century.
With a sausage sizzle, precision drill team, and activities for the kids, Big Things in Store is a great day out for the whole family. Entry is by gold-coin donation, with proceeds going to support the work of the Australian War Memorial.
