Description

The huge building was part of the No.5 Base Ordnance Depot (5BOD) which was considered to be the largest storage facility for Army Ordnance in Western Australia at that time. Built at a total cost of approx. 10 million pounds it is believed to be the largest timber clad building in the southern hemisphere, featuring a distinctive saw tooth roof.
The Museum is run  by local volunteers and relies heavily on the support of the Shire of Nungarin and donations from the public to  maintain and expand exhibits. Many of the the items on display have been donated.
