If you have an interest in naval history, a visit to Greater Hume Shire Visitor Information Centre and Holbrook Submarine Museum will definitely excite you. The mock up of HMAS Otway internals and holographic presentation about Holbrook VC will leave you stunned. Kids can play on the submarine while you take a look at the artefacts on display which will tell you very interesting information. The staff has done an immensely good job in maintenance and upkeep of Holbrook Submarine Museum. The way submarine history has been re-created deserves all the appreciation.

Holbrook Submarine Museum Reviews & Ratings
Odd place to find a submarine museum until you learn the history of how Holbrook was named. Museum itself is small but tightly packed with artifacts from Australian submarines - uniforms, badges, medals, memorabilia and folk art. There is a recreation of a bridge, state room and bunks from a submarine which is enough to give an impression of the crowded quarters. The holographic video display is suitably dramatic in parts and endearingly quirky. Worth a look if you are in Holbrook.
Amazing place. Friendly and helpful staff
One of the must do stopover when driving between Melbourne and Sydney/Canberra. I know its weired to imagine a submarine displayed inland but hey the name of this town was changed to honour decorated WW1 hero Lt Norman Douglas Holbrook who captained the unsinkable terror (submarine HMS B11). The submarine displayed is the hull of real HMS B11 submarine and you can see the sheer size of it. The museum is great as it offers a great insight into the life of the mariners in submarine. There are 6 displays to showcase various sections of the submarine. They have a good 3d holographic story narration for the curious minds that takes you through the achivements of HMS B11.
Great place away from the hustle and bustle of the city. It's a wonderful place to visit with the family
What a place to visit, Museum is a must small cost but well worth it.
