Located at the historic Port of Wentworth, the Wentworth Military Collection is a must see for anyone with a connection to the Australian or International armed forces. This unique collection displays artefacts and militaria from all over the world, with an emphasis on Australian service to our nation. From the 1890 Boer War to Afghanistan 2012, the collection also displays past and current service issue uniforms and equipment of today.
During the Second World War, Wentworth and the surrounding Shire hosted a number of practice bombing ranges for use by the RAAF’s No.2 Operational Training Base, based at the Mildura Airport. These sites included the Perry Sandhills, The Mock Battleship, Lake Victoria, Lake Gol Gol and the White Cliffs State Forest. 52 Pilots and Ground crew were killed during the period of training in the region and are marked by memorial plaque stones at each of the respective sites.
