Well cared for with helpful staff to show you around and tell you about the aircraft. The military aircraft are a must to see especially for ex RAAF members

Great chance to get close to history. The planes are displayed, with a brief story of how they got to be here. The staff a not only informative, but incredibly passionate. Great way to spend a few hours. A real gem.

This museum that is operated by volunteers just keeps getting better. The latest acquisition that has been beautifully restored for static display is a RAAF F111C. The large collection of both military and civilian aircraft is diverse and historic. Highly recommended.

To be recommended, always changing for the better, we have here all aspects of aviation history. Many fully fitted out aircraft both Military and civilian, restored and telling the story of aviation so far. Definitely a top knotch exhibit manned mainly by volunteers with knowledge to burn. Well worth the entry fee. Locals should go here often, as new exhibits... More

We visited this attraction recently and found we spent a very interesting and enjoyable few hours. The length of time for a visit would depend on how interested you would be in that type of display and articles on display. The major draw for us was the F111. It is such a huge plane. We were there about 5 years... More

I went along with Hubby to fill in some time before our flight home. I was really impressed with the display of planes and information boards. A very well set out exhibition.

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
