Bernie Dingle, Curator
When the Victorian government, through its bureaucracy, moved the highway they failed to replicate any signposting to this truly incredible tourist attraction, leaving Bernie, and Frances, to their own fate. This is not surprising given my observation of the attitudes of the self indulgent Victorian state government bureaucracy. They could howvere sign post the various lavender farms and wineries. After all bureaucrats have their own view of what is valuable and important. They rarely dedicate their lives to creating anything of lasting effort do they? The Victorian State Ministers for the Arts and Tourism do not seem to ever demand a quality of consideration, or effort, and I think that this will continue. Other peoples' efforts, blood, sweat and tears, are of little import to the great bureaucrats, and politicians, of Australia's governments particularly the state governments. If the individual were to complain continually and become an annoyaance it is likely that retribution will be the outcome, so the dedicated keep quiet. So you will have to persevere to find the gem that is the Light Horse and Field Artillery Museum.
Take the Monash M1 Freeway out of Melbourne, towards Dandenong/Warragul. Stay on the freeway to Warragul, going past Berwick turn off and head towards Packenham. Go past the three Packenham exits. Watch for the Nar Nar Goon exit. Take it and look for the Bessie Creek Road arrow on your right, at the round go to your right and follow the signs to Bessie Creek Road. Turn left just before the garage into Bessie Creek Road and go down perhaps three quarters of a kilometre, there you will find the Light Horse and Field Artillery Museum, on your right.
There is a new section being constructed to cover the war in the Middle East.
