12th/16th Hunter River Lancers History Room - Armidale

About

The museum is located in the historic Gaza Training Depot, corner of Mann and Allingham streets, Armidale. Its mission is to commemorate the heritage of the 12th/16th Hunter River Lancers and the military history of the Hunter and New England regions, with particular reference to the Light Horse and Royal Australian Armoured Corps.

The collection, consisting of significant photographic and documentary material as well as uniforms and equipment includes material dating from pre-Federation Colonial forces in the New England and Hunter River regions to the present day. The approaches give young and old a range of opportunities to increase their awareness of what the 12/16 Hunter River Lancers Regiment has meant to the community.
