Animals in War: An Exhibition
May 2 - June 30 | 9:30am - 12:00pm| $15
Australian history abounds with accounts of how important animals have been during times of war. Animal lovers and historians will delight in the latest exhibition at Brisbane’s Victoria Barracks.
The exhibition includes tributes to the camels, horses, mules and donkeys in World War One. In Vietnam and Afghanistan, many Diggers relied on their beloved dog mates and these stories are also shown.
Tours (Wednesdays only) by individuals or groups must be pre-booked. The price is $15 per person and includes the exhibition, an escorted tour of Victoria Barracks precinct on Petrie Terrace, a formal Devonshire Tea served in the original Officers’ Mess, souvenir booklet and group photo.
