Seems incredible that a collection like this exists in such a gun-phobic nation huh.
Apparently it is the only museum in Australia to have such a windfall. Pathetically, such was the wholesale Govt encouraged fear-mongering and paranoia after the introduction of the 1996 laws, that this resulted in many major public museums removing all but their most antique weapons from display (guns manufactued before 1901 do not need to be licensed...and of course are far less threatening to a fearful public, due to their non 'black n scary' nature lol)
So this museum is singularly fantastic for preserving and displaying our military history as no where else does.
And thank god for that
