Army Museum of North Queensland

Galleries, Museums and Collections

The Army Museum of North Queensland is located within Jezzine Barracks, Kissing Point in Townsville. The Museum collects and exhibits memorabilia associated with past and current military units and personnel from North Queensland, including a geographic area between Rockhampton in the south, extending north to Torres Strait and west to the Northern Territory border. The Collection extends from the establishment of the first defences at Townsville and Thursday Island until the present day.

Initially housed in the old Kissing Point Fort, the new Museum has moved to the newly refurbished building at the centre of Jezzine barracks. Showcased within the Museum is a gallery displaying pre-federation Army and a gallery showing more recent conflicts of Vietnam and Korea, and the history of Sir John Lavararck and Lavarack Barracks. A third gallery is planned for 2012 and will house World War I and World War II displays, including the Townsville Honour Boards from both these conflicts.
