The museum is definitely worth a visit with a variety of really interesting aircraft and having one of the very few restored F-111s . I think people will be surprised with just how much is at the museum. It is great for something inexpensive to do with the family on a rainy day as most of the exhibits are under... More

We were pleasantly surprised by this museum. The museum volunteers were very helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. All of the aircraft have a story board telling not only the technical details, but also a bit about the history of each plane, which makes it more interesting for those of us who are not technically minded. A must see in Caloundra!

Loved the F111c on display but the other aircraft in various stages of restoration in and around the hangars certainly aroused interest and seeing the volunteers working on a wide variety of aircraft showed how dependent establishments are on volunteers.

On my return after two years' absence I was amazed to see the number of newly added exhibits, especially the F111. I enjoyed talking to a volunteer staff member who had a profound technical knowledge of this exceptional jet bomber. The AUD 10 entrance fee is a small price to pay for the visit.

This is always my first stop during our holidays. The people there are constantly working to make this place even more interesting. I did miss the PA -25 this time, but I was told it had fallen off the ceiling during storms. Congrats to the stunning F-111 . Please, keep up the good work and I sincerely hope that the... More

A magnificent collection staffed by a remarkable body of volunteers. All exhibits well displayed with very good interpretive work. Very well kept surrounds and attention to visitor needs and enquiries could not be faulted. Visited during an Engine Start up day, which was awesome! Highly recommended.

Looking for something to do on a rainy day, we were pleasantly surprised by the Air Museum. There are lots of exhibits from a recently retired RAAF F-111 to more vintage aircraft - both military and civilian - spread across 2 hangars and grassy areas outside. There are stories of various figures in Australian aviation, and a kids corner for... More

Great to see the old planes and air-stuff. My boys imaginations were fired up with the fighter planes. The people who run the place are really great and passionate. A couple of hours well spent

If you like planes and history it is AUS$13 well spent. Very friendly and helpful staff and an excellent show of planes. Spent 1 1/2 hrs looking around. Would have been great to have a bar nearby to cool you down and then carry on
