Rarely seen relics from Australia's action in the First and Second World Wars are being revealed after being hidden away in a giant warehouse for years.
The old tanks, heavy artillery and planes have been stored by the Australian War Memorial which has struggled to find space to show them in its museum.
The curators have decided the only solution is to temporarily open the doors of the warehouse itself.
Now visitors can finally get to see exhibits simply too big for permanent display as well as those undergoing long and painstaking restoration.
It looks more like an old aircraft hanger rather than the grand old museums normally associated with war memorabilia, but for the young and old visitors here it's an opportunity to take a journey back in time.
These armaments, normally hidden from view in this humidity controlled warehouse, have been dusted and cleaned until they gleam.
Youngsters can get an historical view of how war was conducted, while veterans are able to remember their own participation in Australia's 20th century conflicts.
Mike Cecil the Head Curator of the Australian War Memorial says it's a broad collection which varies from the smallest buttons to enormous tanks, trucks, guns and aircraft.
It's the collection of German fighter planes from World War One (WW1), the Albatross and the Pfalz which have captured the imaginations of visitors the most this year. Pilots flying these types of engines during WW1 weren't expected to survive beyond a month.
The Australian War Memorial's Senior curator Nick Fletcher says it's very unusual to see aircraft like these survive so long because they were simple timber and fabric designs which had comparatively short lifespans.
The museum ensures that, as far as possible, the planes are restored to their original condition.
The fabric used to repair the Pfalz and the Albatross was commissioned from the original looms still operating in Germany.
Among the more unusual exhibits is a tall metal tube which is a German camouflage tree.
Nick Fletcher says the tube would be covered in tree bark, then soldier would climb to the top inside the tube and use hidden portholes to spy on allied forces during WW1.
The Memorial also shows how Australia's industry progressed. During the Second World War the country had developed its own Mark 3 cruiser tank.
Mike Cecil says it represents the development of transport in World War Two and in the post war period.
Some items will eventually make it to the War Memorial's main public galleries, but at least visitors will get to see much more of the collection before the warehouse doors are closed again and it goes back into storage.
