Museum Rooms

When you visit Fort Scratchley make sure you spend some time in the Museum Rooms to get an insight into the fascinating history of the Fort.

There are five Museum Rooms open to the public that have been carefully curated by members of the Fort Scratchley Historical Society.

Entry into the Museum Rooms is free.

The Rooms cover the history of the site, from pre-Fort use by the Awabakal people, its purpose as the first coal mine in Australia, pre WW1 relevance, Novocastrian involvement in WW1 and of course the site's important role in protecting Australia's coastline during WW11.
