“Holbrook Submarine Museum is dedicated to the preservation and display of Australia’s submarine heritage dating back to the ‘silent Anzac’ AE2 and the first loss of Australian lives in WW1 with the loss of AE1 off the coast of New Britain.
The Submarine Precinct has the original above water line superstructure of the Oberon Class submarine H.M.A.S OTWAY. The 7 original masts are a noticeable feature with the Radar mast rotating during daylight hours. There is also a large scale model of Lt. Norman Holbrook V.C’s submarine B11.
The Museum houses H.M.A.S OTWAY’S original Control Room section complete with bunks, heads, working periscope and the Wardroom (Officer’s quarters).”

The following are excerpts from Havewheelchairwilltravel.net:
"Holbrook Submarine Museum has good accessibility throughout the museum but due to the confined quarters of the submarine control room some wheelchairs may not be able to fit inside this space.
Ramp access is provided to the control room and BJ’s wheelchair (64cm wide), with his off-road tyres, just fitted past the periscope and other equipment in the room.
A unisex stand-alone accessible bathroom is available in the museum."Other accessibility information:
