Nungarin Heritage Machinery and Army Museum
Between 1942 and 1962 Nungarin was a depot for Australian army personnel, supplies and machinery. The Museum is situated in the original Army Vehicle Workshop. When you visit the Museum watch a video about Nungarin and the Museum, before being captivated by the impressive collection of army tanks, trucks, vehicles and farm machinery. During the war there was a limited supply of tractors, and after the war, tanks like the 1942 Stuart Tank, were sold and used for clearing farms. Also look out for the 'Mad Max of vehicles', the 1942 Dingo Scout Car. There is a display of army uniforms, badges, small armoury, electronics and badges, and the impressive 10th Light Horse Collection dedicated to Trooper Joseph William Spillman. Don’t forget to visit Marie “Aunty Jim” Farrell’s shop. The remaining contents of her shop were donated to the Museum when she retired in 2000. It includes a kitchen and dining area, and the kitchen sink.
