Holbrook Submarine Museum

The Holbrook Submarine Museum is located in the small town of Holbrook, on Wirajuri Country, in the Riverina Murray region of New South Wales.

Holbrook, known as ‘the Submarine town’, was named after the first submariner to receive the Victoria Cross, Lieutenant Norman Holbrook. The museum is dedicated to the preservation of Australia’s submarine heritage and commemorates the fatal sinking of HMAS AE1, the first submarine to serve in WW1.

The museum’s main attraction is an ‘above waterline’ section of HMAS Otway, an Oberon Class submarine. Inside the restored superstructure is an original control room, complete with bunks, heads, officers quarters and a working periscope. Along with displays of naval artefacts and photographs is a wheelchair friendly auditorium.
