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

Awesome! Informative, interactive and FUN :-) Great for big kids and little. Central, easy place to find and once you're finished at the museum you can watch the planes take off and land.

A varied collection of aircraft, many of which need work. Run by friendly and helpful volunteers. The museum really could do with an injection of funds to help with restoration. I don't know how these thing work in Australia, but a lottery grant would be helpful. Not great compared with some of the UK museums, but worth a visit, especially... More

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.
