Our purpose for visiting Phillip Island was to visit the Museum. The sound and light show is very moving, and provides an excellent overview of the background to the conflict. I was a little too young to appreciate what was going on at the time....More

This museum is well worth visiting. Lots of large exhibits and lots of small exhibits which personalise the sacrifice of the 58,000 Australian servicemen and women who served in the conflict. Nice array of items in their gift store and they make a lovely cuppa.
