Outlet Information

(“Pucka”) is an Australian Army training facility and base 10 km west of Seymour, in central Victoria. The base was originally established in 1920’s to train and mobilise forces for WW1. Home to the Australian Army’s School Of Armour and the School of Artillery and the School of Transport, along with the Combined Arms Training and Development Centre, the Joint Logistics Unit, and two transport squadrons.[2] The Royal Australian Armoured Corps Memorial and Army Tank Museum are on the base’s grounds. The camp’s name was derived from the name of a large hill within the field training area, today known as Mount Puckapunyal. There is some uncertainty about the origins of the word ‘Puckapunyal’, the most common explanation being that is an aboriginal word meaning “Among the Hills”.
The township on base is home to approx 280 families of the Australian Defence Force community, It contains a primary school, shopping centre, a variety of sporting facilities, and a theatre.
