Marrakai Military Museum

Looking for something to do when you're in Darwin.

Come out to Marrakai Military Museum, where you see the display of the only one known to survive World War 2, the Mark 8 Cockleshell Motorised Canoe. Used by the Australian z special unit and commando in World War 2 in the pacific islands.

The military collection contains thousands of objects from World War 2. With very rare items and uniforms from Australian, American, English, German, Japanese, Chinese and Russian. Items from Gallipoli, Midway, Tobruk, Band of Brothers, Z Force and Flying Tigers.

Marrakai Military Museum is an amazing World War 2 museum with the best displays of World War 2 uniforms in Darwin. Just follow the signs from the Corroboree Tavern.
