Come to the museum and...

•Climb an actual fire tower.  The original fire towers were 80 to 100 feet tall and were built on high ground in order to have the maximum field of vision for spotting forest fires.  Our 30 foot high example provides an excellent view overlooking the display floor.

•Visit a reproduction of a ranger's office, complete with a radio link to the fire tower.

•See a working lightning strike recorder in action.

•Visit a reproduction of an actual 1940's bush camp.  Bush camps were used as temporary homes for forest firefighting crews.

•View our collection of vintage fire pumps and railway speeders!
