This Transmitting Building Bunker is located in a State Forest area to the west of the Mallacoota airfield. This Transmitting Bunker operated in conjunction with the Operations Building Bunker now located at 8 Betka Road, Mallacoota. The Mallacoota RSL and Historical Society has converted the Operations Building Bunker at Mallacoota into a military museum.
