Museum
“The Australian Armour and Artillery Museum opened to the public on Saturday the 6th September 2014. The museum is privately owned and is the largest museum of its kind in the southern hemisphere. We are located next door to Tjapukai and Skyrail on Skyrail Drive, Smithfield, a suburb of Cairns, North Queensland. We are dedicated to the collection, preservation, restoration and display of Armoured Vehicles and Artillery from the 1800’s to the present day. Our collection includes armoured vehicles and artillery from both world wars with a particular focus on WWII. ”

“More a shop than an Art Gallery I guess but Paul and Anna have a genuinely deep understanding of Aboriginal Art. It is all original and consequently is not within everybody's price range.”
