Mallacoota WWII Bunker Museum

Mallacoota WWII Bunker Museum

The building was originally a WWII Operations Bunker, built in 1942 as an Advanced Operations Base.

It was a High Security Installation - part of a chain of defence bases around the Australian Coastline.

It was used by the RAAF during WWII for Communications.

The Bunker housed wireless equipment and trained operators who were listening to coastal shipping and gathering intelligence - surveillance which was further collated and sent to Melbourne.

The purpose of these operations was to protect coastal shipping and keep the sea lanes open.
