  • The museum is amazing. The staff enthusiastic, knowledgeable and welcoming.. A huge range of well Preserved tanks most in working order and all with description of what tank is and where they were used. I saw something different each day I was there. 3 days in all. We went for Armour Fest which was fantastic and I am not into Tanks. The energy of the event was high. To see so many working tanks driving and taking excited passengers was a buzz. Well worth spending a few days at the event.
  • An amazing collection of military armour and artillery. Our boys enjoyed the opportunity to shoot some rifles at the shooting gallery. The collection of tanks from many countries is quite extensive. I really enjoyed the Ancient Rome exhibit it was very interesting and had lots of information about things that have come from the Romans. Well worth a visit.
  • What a Gem, took my 11yo here while in Cairns and we had a ball with over 200 plus Tanks and items on display. Amazingly restored and really have a sense of the conditions inside them. Highly recommend to pop in, good prices and they said the tickets are valid for three days, so if your an avid fan you can take the time to read all the information and pop back later to finish.
  • This place is much bigger than we expected and it is all under cover. So many great exhibits of tanks from around the world. There is an optional shooting gallery to experience military rifles and a modified tank for joyrides. There is no cafe on site but a shopping centre nearby. The pass is valid for a number of days. We'll worth a visit.
  • A must to do in Cairns!!! The Australian Armour And Artillery Museum delivers an astonishing collection of armour And artillery. Need to spot 1-2 hours to explore the larger variety of tanks and other vehicles. There is a shooting gallery to experience real shooting. If interested, make sure to be there before 9:30 as the shooting capacity is limited. Located 25 km NW of Cairns with plenty of car parks. Good idea to combine your visit to the museum with Skyrail to make it a full day trip. Highly recommended!!!
