This visit I found everything much better arranged and the staff were there to discuss the exhibits and I thoroughly enjoyed my time there. If I had wanted I could have used their flight simulator at a price and there are also sky diving facilities at this airport. Free parking and a good half day visit

Excellent collection of aircrafts including F111. Don't take the partner if has no interest in airplanes! It only will hinder your observation.

We only spent a few hours here but could have easily stayed for at least half a day. Lots of great aircraft and friendly volunteers happy to share some fantastic tales about the planes. The F1-11 is the shiny new attraction and is definitely worth a visit, especially on the museum's open cockpit day. However, even if you don't visit... More

Have just spent a day at the Queensland Air Museum, it was their Open Cockpit Weekend that is held once a year in the June - July school holidays. Value for money and very friendly staff. The museum is worthwhile visiting at any time of the year. Check out their website for the various activities that are held throughout the... More

Great display, how these guys have done the restoration work for no monetary gain is unbelievable. It is a great collection and display.

I've wanted to see this museum since I was in my early teens hearing about an epic story bringing back three jets that would have otherwise met an end as soda cans. The jet that captured my imagination was one never operated in Australia, the De Havilland FAW.2 Sea Vixen. To finally see it was a sight. Plus the fact... More

I recently visited here with my wife while we holidaying on the Sunshine Coast. Even though the wife was reluctant before getting there, she ended up enjoying our visit. What amazed me was the range of aircraft and other displays. Every time I looked I found something different that I didn't see the first time around. I would highly recommend... More

Hubby totally loved this. Took many pics of the old planes. Great historic value. We were charmed to find one that had been in Singapore!

Quensland Air Museum is close to the Caloundra CBD. It is a community owned museum preserving Australia's civil and military air history and heritage. It houses Australia's biggest collection and displays of aircraft history and exhibitions. Be prepared to spend several hours to fully appreciate the many and varied aircraft on display. The highlight is the F111 which is in... More

I took my eldest son here for a morning as we live not far and have never been. This was a great way to spend the morning, lots of aircraft to see and read about and other great air memorabilia too. I would definitely have this on my to do list on the Sunshine Coast.
