Lat 35° 12' 55" S Long 149° 8' 41" E  Treloar Technology Centre (Australian War Memorial Annex) houses more of the Australian War Memorial (AWM) collection. Located at the corner of Vicars and Callan Streets. Guided tours are provided by staff to small groups. Their collection is amazing and very large, and every part of the collection deserves a page worth of information. Fascinating relics, like a landing boat from the Gallipolli Landing, or the gun off the famous German raider SMS Emden. Also, a huge collection of guns and mortars that were taken as trophies after WWI, and given to Australian towns after the war in appreciation for their contributions to the war effort.
