Went for the Aero Engine Run day and it was a great day. Its great to see all the hard work the volunteers put in and especially when the engines fire up. You dont really have to be an aviation geek to enjoy the museum, you will certainly appreciate the history and the sheer size of some of the planes.... More

Been here a few times with my two boys and every time we drive past on the main road they ask "can we go see the planes". Really well laid out with lots on hands on displays and you can get up close to everything this along with the helpful staff make a great experience

I decided to finally take my wife to see the very first aircraft I flew on a training flight at the age of 16. We were greeted by Colin who was absolutely marvellous and went out of his way to show us around. My wife said my eyes were like saucers walking around the various displays which brought back many...

If nostaligia and planes interest you then a visit to this very worthy tourist attraction is well worth the visit and even if planes arent your thing, then I highly reccommend a visit. A fabulous display of aircraft from years gone by and a fabulous learning ground for the young. The display of nostalga speaks for its self making all... More

Awesome display of aircraft some restored to like new others are works in progress. Many to look at. Best time of the year is when the open cockpit is on. Gives the kids a chance to explore inside these air machines.

I can't believe the new jet fit in there. It's huge and we were able to climb all over it in the platforms. Well worth a visit.

Attended this museum with a friend who is a retired Qantas 747 400 Check Captain. He knew many of the aircraft personally so made it very interesting. If you have any aviation interest you will enjoy this museum. There were many more aircraft and engines on display together with aviation memorabillia. The F111 was a highlight as it can be... More

My little boy loves aeroplanes so what better place to take him too. A couple of hours checking out the planes flew by so quickly. No pun intended, but it was fun watching him loving aeroplanes.
