Due to the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) throughout Australia and the resulting restrictions imposed by the Federal and State governments, Running Rabbits Military Museum has been temporarily closed until further notice. We will keep you up to date any developments and please stay safe.
The Running Rabbits Military Museum is an important attraction in the Dandenong Ranges and houses a huge range of historic artefacts and photographs from the Boer War, WWI and WWII.
The Museum opened on ANZAC Day in 2009 and was named in dedication to those who fought on the Kokoda Track during WWII.
