The Mallacoota Bunker may have a story not known to many people and yet, it had the fundamental task of keeping the vulnerable south-eastern Australia coast and sea-lanes open.
Operating as the headquarters of the Royal Australian Air Force during WWII, the two bunkers built and used at the time were essential to protect the entrance to the Bass Strait.
Now restored by the local RSL and the Mallacoota Historical Society, one of these bunkers operates as a museum, welcoming visitors eager to learn about these challenging times.
The Mallacoota and District Historical Society takes care of this ongoing development, also managing the site and museum to preserve this local piece of history.
