The Queensland Air Museum is the biggest and best collection of military and civilian aircraft I've seen so far in Australia. It is well laid out and most of the aircraft are in excellent condition. The Carabau and Huey brought back many fond memories of my time in the Army. The volunteer staff were wonderful, friendly and very informative on... More

The kids loved the museum. Plenty to look at and they loved the planes. The volunteers are very friendly and they are what makes this place great.

This volunteer-run organisation has created a fascinating museum of Australian flight - with examples of military and domestic aircraft from all the eras. You can get up close to most, and get inside some. There are special days where you can access the cockpit of the Spitfire and other planes, and they have a monthly firing up of some of... More

This is an excellent museum, in fact probably the best I have ever been to. And I have been to some in the past. The displays feature early flight and early pioneers of flight. There are many planes to see spread over two hangers and out in the open. I spent more than 2 hours there and it was certainly... More

Amazing place, highly recommended! The volunteers enthusiasm is infectious. Amazing array of historic aircraft that is Caloundra's best kept secret.

We ended up at this museum one rainy morning in January- expected to spend an hour here but took a good 2+ hours. Lots of interesting exhibits, volunteers were very helpful and friendly and heaps of hands on activities for the kids (our toddler loved it!)

We visited on a quiet Monday and found the museum to be well presented and interesting. The folks manning the place were friendly, chatty and very welcoming. If you have a bit of spare time, it is well worth it to visit and wander through the good sized collection of aircraft. Many interesting stories accompany the displays.

Taken by my partner who thought it was really great I was surprised by how interesting this outing was. I was very moved by the history and condition of the DC3 and grateful that there are motivated people preserving and caring for important aviation equipment. The F111 was also impressive.

Grandkids loved it. They love the helicopter, that they can hope into. Grandson loves the big plane he can go right inside. Some you have to just look through the windows.
