Glenelg Air-Raid Shelter

Glenelg Air-Raid Shelter, Glenelg East SA, Australia (See map)

The Glenelg Air-Raid Shelter was built in 1942 as part of a WWII communications network. It now houses exhibitions and memorabilia that 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 and by gold coin donation.
