Naval Gun Collection

Located within the grounds of the Princess Royal Fortress is an extensive naval gun collection. It contains a range of artefacts including the original gun turrets from the HMAS Swan and HMAS Torrens which both served in the Royal Australian Navy. There is also a range of guns from other vessels which can be moved and operated by hand as part of a hands on experience just as they were in active service. Great fun for all ages!   


The National Anzac Centre, Forts Store and other public buildings within Princess Royal Fortress are closed to the public until further notice due to the current COVID-19 health emergency.

The City of Albany regrets these closures, however it is in the interest of the health and safety of the community and our staff.

All online tickets, vouchers and gift certificates will be honoured when we reopen.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are advised that this exhibition may include names, images, and references to people who have since passed away.
