Great aviation and Australian history. Tickets were quite affordable, even for a family. The staff/volunteers were very friendly and knowledgeable.

The Museum is very easy to find. It is run by volunteers who could not have been more helpful on the front desk. This is not the Smithsonian but it is an incredible collection of aircraft. I have visited a number of aircraft collections world wide and this one did not disappoint.

As my husband has his pilots licence and shares a great interest in planes this was a must see attraction while visiting Caloundra. Since our last visit many years ago it has grown in size and houses many planes and memorabilia. Great to see a F1-11 on display as well as many old planes from airlines. Well set out in... More

My family took a visit just recently to their family day - it was absolutely wonderful. All the volunteers deserve a huge thanks for the time and effort they put into the place. The displays are very well done and will appeal to both young and old.

We recently spent an afternoon wandering around this very interesting aviation museum. We decided to visit as our 12 year old son is very into all things planes and helicopters. Run by a team of very dedicated, knowledgeable and helpful volunteers, the museum features planes and some helicopters as well as other aviation and Air Force memorabilia. Favourites for my... More

Interesting to visit. Not an aviation enthusiast per se, however an interesting look at civilian and military history. Impressive F-111 they have managed to secure. We dropped in because it was raining, but worth a visit even if it's not.

If you are into aeroplanes, aviation history and war history, you will love it. Relish the opportunity of stroking a Spitfire or stepping inside the cockpit of some famous planes. I'm no aviation buff, and possibly got bored too quickly, but did enjoy seeing the relative size of some of the planes, and the technology, including the fold-up wings and... More

Awesome range of planes and helicopters to look at. Great views into cockpits and engines. If you are staying in Caloundra and have even the slightest interest in planes I suggest you go. My 4 year old loved it and even my wife who didn't want to go at all found it interesting. 10/10
