This place is a monument to those war days that should never close . The history in this place is second to none and irreplaceable. The owner and historian "Bernie Dingle" has the most amazing stories and when you go..... you will be spell bound.

We had to stop in Nar Nar Goon recently for a pit stop and because Nar Nar Goon is No No Goon in Australian so we had many mature giggles about that. We stopped in at the Light Horse & Field Artillery Museum and it is a wonderful private display of memorabilia dedicated to the memory of the animals who... More

Decided after many years driving by the museum to stop in and have a look . Was very saddened to speak to Bernie , the owner to hear he couldnt allow me in due to nothing more than pathetic local gov interference and that he risked considerable fines and possible jail if he let me through .. Bernie was close... More

I have driven passed the sign to the museum on many occasions but never had the time to put aside for a visit. This is an amazing collection displaying our military history, I regret not visiting earlier. I have been to many museums and saw things that I have never seen before. Bernie the owner was a wealth of knowledge... More

A guided tour of heartfelt meaning with only 2 of us to talk to,the man who guided us through this museum was very passionate about his subject. There was a genuine love of the stock in there. Possibly a little too dusty for me,and wear flat closed in shoes if you are going,cos sometimes the ground can be muddy outside... More

This is an Interactive, comprehensive and informative display of all things Light Horse and WW1. Travel through living history viewing many realistic dioramas, both life-size and window size. New displays are being added all the time, It takes an enjoyable good few hours to view and digest all on show.Very worthy of multiple visits!

I recently discovered that my long lost uncle Bernard Dingle was the curator of this fascinating musuem and took a trip there. I blown away by the incredible collection he had managed to accumulate with little or no funding and his passion at keeping the history alive. I never knew my great-grandfather Dudley Dingle was a lighthorseman and am so... More

We were 'blown' away with what we saw at this place!! The memorabilia collected over 26 years relating to the Australian Light Horse is truly amazing! I have read a number of books about the Australian Light Horse and the 'role' it 'played' during WW1 but here....! We learnt so much more about the Light Horse during Crimea, Boer, First... More

I haven't been to the museum yet, but I see these guys regularly at the Anzac Day Parade. They give a terrific historical context to the parade itself. They deserve al the support we can give.
