I think you can tell the museums which are run by volunteers as they seem to inject an air of enthusiasm into the museum. This is a cool little establishment, lots of interesting aircraft, and displays, and I liked the bios they had on Australian aviators. Well worth a visit.

One of the premier attractions on the Sunshine Coast. Look for F111s, Hueys Helicopters and other aircraft. 30 are on display. Coming here is a fun day out for the family.

Came here for second visit in November 2014 (first was in 1990!). Great collection of aircraft, easily accessible, friendly and knowledgeable group of volunteers running the place. A good place to while away 2 hours if you are not an enthusiast, take 3 to 4 if you are. They have open cockpit and engine run days every so often too.... More

At $30 for a family, this was a great thing to do on an overcast morning. It was good to be able to see all of the different sort of plans. Friendly staff and very well set up.

Last month we visited this facility. From the very warm welcome, affordable entry fee and many aircraft and displays to look at made this a worthwhile place to visit. We spent a good couple of hours there just wandering around, and the F111 on display is really awesome. I don't think you have to be mad about aircraft etc to... More

We were hoping to visit the QANTAS Museum in Longreach later in our trip but realised that it was going to be too far for us to travel in the time we have. So this was a bit of a compromise, but it turned out to be a great one. The museum has hundreds of exhibits, all of them with... More

Came across the attraction by chance and made the 50 km trip. Was a great surprise and have a great admiration for the volunteers which spend their days and weekends there. Came across a old Airline of Tasmanian De Havilland I use to fly in to King Island when managing the Health centre. Like meeting an old friend. There is... More
