Hidden under the canopy of a modern hangar, you will discover what the imperial enemy couldn’t find, the secret No.1 Flying Boat Repair Depot in Australia, used during the Second World War.
Under the guidance and dedication of the Lake Boga Lions Club, this remarkable museum takes us back to the 1940s, where Catalinas were more common on the lake than speed boats are today.
While you are there, make sure you explore inside the rebuilt A24-30 Catalina Flying Boat or go underground into the secret Communication Bunker, where one can gain an understanding of the importance this base held during the Second World War.
For those wanting to use today’s more modern communication devices, enter into the command centre and be briefed with a short film depicting the events that occurred during this period. After taking it all in, allow yourself time to relax while you come back to 21st century, and what better way than with a latte overlooking the beautiful lake.
