Nungarin Heritage Machinery & Army Museum

Nungarin is only a few short hours east of Perth in the central wheatbelt of Western Australia. It is a small town with an amazing military history. During WWII it was the site of one of the state's largest base ordnance depots. After the war, most of the buildings were sold, but of the few that remain, a huge timber framed tank workshop was purchased by the local shire, and is now home to a collection of military and other historic memorabilia.
