A must do for the plane enthusiasts and public alike

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.

Wow - we decided to get along to the Open Cockpit weekend, and were very pleasantly surprised. There was heaps to see and do, the displays were excellent and the kids (and Dad) had a ball. The highlight was without doubt the F111 - this is a must see.

We have visited this museum several times to take family and friends. the open cockpit days are awesome. Set at the heart of the flying precinct - airport, you couldn't ask for a more appropriate location. My husband flew in both the f1 and caribou on site, so it's wonderful to have these memories so close to home. The rescue... More

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
