Welcome to the Central Coast Interactive War Exhibit – a unique private military exhibit honouring 100 years of our nation’s defence forces.

The Central Coast Interactive War Exhibit is the brainchild of long term Central Coast resident, and Gosford’s Citizen of the year 2016,       Andrew Church.

CCIWE is a Not for Profit organisation with charity status and deductible gift recipient status (that means any donations you make are tax deductible).  We rely on donations and fundraising.  All entry fees are used by the exhibit to restore and maintain the artefacts, preserving them for generations to come.

CCIWE is an interactive exhibit with sights and sounds straight from the Frontline. See dynamic dioramas, Anzac Cove, Frontline WWII, an army aid station, a radio communications exhibit and a WWII war office…a fully restored Royal Australian Engineers Willys Jeep (which Andrew drives each year in the ANZAC Day and Remembrance Day parades) … an Australian Light Horse uniform … a stretcher used at Gallipoli … uniforms from WWI, WWII, Korea and Vietnam, and so much more.

It is a truly unique exhibit aimed at school students, interest groups and the public. Even if you are not interested in war history or museums, you will find this a fascinating and moving experience.

CCIWE is also proud to offer a medal restoration and replica medal mounting service. Please go to our Shop, Medals page and leave us an enquiry.

"Fellow Australians, it is my melancholy duty to inform you officially, that in consequence of a persistence by Germany in her invasion of Poland, Great Britain has declared war upon her and that, as a result, Australia is also at war. No harder task can fall to the lot of a democratic leader than to make such an announcement."

Prime Minister Robert Gordon Menzies, 3 September 1939
