Imagine the life of a Warrnambool Garrison Artillery Soldier as you experience the sound and spectacle of the firing of the historic 80 pound cannon and take the opportunity to dress up in military costume complete with coat, pill box hat and wooden replica rifle.

Discover the fascinating stories of the militia and those who defended Warrnambool from enemy attack and how the Warrnambool Garrison is connected to the creation of one of Australia’s greatest folk songs, connecting people and place across Australia and the wider world.
