Hire military vehicles for events, tours and film shoots

Our collection of military vehicles in Bowral is one of the best in Australia. You can view them and ride in them by appointment. Our vehicles have been used in movies and ads across Australia. If you have an upcoming film shoot that requires military vehicles, get in touch! We’d love to work with you.

A safe place for veterans to gather

Our Bowral headquarters, Nui Dat RnR, is an informal and relaxed meeting place for all Australian Defence Force veterans. Named after the Australian Army Base in the Vietnam War, Nui Dat RnR is a safe space to share stories, educate visitors and work on our collection of historic military vehicles.

We’re creating a living museum on-site at Nui Dat RnR to broaden the educational opportunities on offer for individuals and groups. Stay tuned.
