The Royal Military College, Duntroon is the Australian Army's officer training establishment.

You are allowed to drive through it, and it is worth doing, as a lot of the buildings date back to 1911, when the college 1st opened. These buildings are still used today, having been heritage listed.

Of note, is the Officer's Mess, the lovely 'Duntroon House', a nice stone building, which had lovely well kept gardens and established Trees. It seemed too nice to be an Officer's Mess.

The College itself is situated at the foot of Mt Pleasant on the Duntroon estate.

The base is one of the only military bases in Australia that is open to the general public. If you are a golfer, then you could play a game on the golf course here.
There is a residential area for Defence members and their families, various area logistics and infrastructure units, a military hospital, a retail area, vast sporting facilities and the Australian Defence Force Academy.
