Imagine a gallery devoted to cartoons and all things cartooning. The Bunker Cartoon Gallery in Coffs Harbour is just such a place. Its aim is to promote the art of cartooning, and exhibit and preserve Australia's cartooning history for future generations.
Built in 1943 during the second world war, the underground bunker was the Base Operations Unit No.12. It housed the RAAF's communication equipment, necessary to help protect the nation.
Today, the Bunker is the custodian of the Coffs Cartoon Collection, with well over 23,000 cartoons from leading Australian and international cartoonists. Its role, although different from its wartime past, is still one of communicator and protector of Australia’s history, albeit in satirical form.
