In a precautionary measure that considers the current public health situation, we are temporarily closing the Glenelg Air-raid shelter to the public, effective until further notice

We encourage you to follow our social media channels for further updates.

We are very grateful for the understanding of the community and wish everyone well during this time.

The Glenelg Air-Raid Shelter was built in 1942 as part of a WWII communications network. It now houses exhibitions and memorabilia which tell the stories of Holdfast Bay and its residents during the various wars including WWII.

The Shelter is staffed by volunteers who would love to hear your war related stories.

Access is via a steep flight of stairs
