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.

Many planes that tell stories of past endeavours that will thrill young and old alike. The black box display and attached story is intriguing and not even black at all.

Went to the open cockpit weekend and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. They also ran aero engines, large and small, throughout the day. Fantastic! They venue was clean and well catered by local community vendors. Lots of interesting history to learn as well. A visit here would be considered well worthwhile at anytime. Loved seeing a beautifully maintained F111 again!

I'm no plane nut, but I like planes. This place was great, the beauty of this place is the informative content along side each plane or exhibit. Its very well priced and worth going to! I spent 3 hours here, but I imagine for people who aren't interested in reading each information plaque you might spend half that time The... More

Give yourself plenty of time, lots to see and read, great to be able to get inside some planes and see into cockpits if others.
