Holbrook Submarine Museum

Look through the periscope for your car, fire a torpedo, see the amazing hologram or captain a submarine.

Ever wondered why there is a life sized submarine in the middle of rural NSW?

Take a stroll through the Holbrook Submarine Museum and find out how the HMAS Otway's final resting spot came to be in Holbrook. Learn all about the brave young Submariner whose exploits during the First World War earned him the honour of having a town named after him.

The Museum houses an amazing display of photos and submarine memorabilia including authentic submarine escape suits, a torpedo and even a genuine Jolly Roger flag. Watch the hologram show to learn how the submarine came to reside in Holbrook.

Groups are welcome, with guided tours of the Museum by prior arrangement only.

An extensive range of souvenirs are for sale, including postcards, mugs, t-shirts, caps, toys and magnets.
