Re: WANT VISIT AUSTRALIA MUSEUM!

Sydney has one dealer located in the city itself

IS Wright Militia
262 Castlereagh St, Sydney NSW,
Dave Allen (manager), ph (02) 9264 7555
Weekdays 9-5.

Most of the stuff is over priced or a mixture of fakes and real,
You enter of Castlereagh St and go up to 2nd floor in the lift, outside not well signed

While your there walk over to the Hyde Park War memorial, about 5 mins (Elizabeth St, runs paraell to Castlereagh St) which has a museum located in the lower floors, well worth a visit

Depending on your time there is also a museum at Paddington, Victoria Barracks, may need to check visiting hours

Canberra a no brainer, head straight to the National War Memorial, put aside at least 3 hours , plenty to see from Boer War to present

Some good WW2 displays on Afrika , Crete and the Air War over Europe to mention a few

Not much in dealers in Canberra, few antique shops out of the city

Hope this helps

Mark S
