Welcome to the Australian Armour & Artillery Museum

The Australian Armour and Artillery Museum opened to the public on Saturday the 6th September 2014.

We are located next door to Tjapukai and Skyrail on Kamarunga Road Caravonica, 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.

Currently our collection consists of over 90 armoured vehicles and artillery pieces, many of which will not be found anywhere else in Australia. We are constantly on the lookout for additional pieces of equipment that will make our museum a richer experience for those visiting.
