About The Bunker Museum

 The Mallacoota WWII Bunker Museum was originally an initiative of the Mallacoota Sub-Branch of the R&SL. A restoration and preservation project was undertaken to restore this building and to preserve some of Mallacoota’s WWII History.

It is now operated solely by the Mallacoota & District Historical Society Inc, houses its collections, and has become the Local History Museum and Heritage Resource Centre for this region of East Gippsland.

  We have ever increasing attendances on our weekly open days and provide further special openings during holiday times as well as for numerous visiting tourist coaches. The number of visitors varies seasonally from 20 to 200 per week. Because Mallacoota is a holiday destination we have continuous visitors and are therefore not reliant solely on local residents for patronage – except in their role as volunteers!
