  • Attended on a "tarmac day" where lots of the planes were outside on the tarmac. Got the opportunity to explore both inside and out of them, lots of volunteers around to answer any questions you have. ...  read more »

  • Took the grand kids (3) from 6 to 11 years old and they had a ball. In and out of airplanes, sitting in the cockpits, back in the belly of the plane, in the pilot & gunner seat of the helicopter gunsh...  read more »
  • While visiting the museum last Wednesday, I unfortunately struck my head on a part of the hatch or hatch door. The inquiry removed some of my scalp. The treatment and care that I received from the staff, especially the ladies behind the counter and guide Dave plus unknown others was just really first class, including arranging for the doctor from the helicopter service to look at me and to Dave driving me to Shellharbour Hospital, was above and beyond. The following day on my return to finish the tour I was amazed at the care and interest. Well done to all. Shame I live so far away. Keep up the good work. Roderick
  • A huge thanks to Mark and Steve who provided a special guided tour of various planes recently. They successfully geared the tour to be suitable to both the adults and young children, resulting in an informative and fun time for all of us. Thanks again, well done!
  • All kudos to the wonderful volunteers & staff at the "Wings over Illawarra" airshow which I attended yesterday (Saturday 30th. April 2016) What a magnificent day was had by three aviation enthusiasts (my brother, my nephew & myself) at this show which had to be cancelled two years running due to bad weather conditions. Yesterday the weather was perfect for the estimated 20000 enthusiasts, overcast at times, spots of rain, sunny periods, some clouds but not enough to spoil the display by some of the finest 'Warbirds" to still be flying due in no small part played by the enthusiastic members of the Historical Aircraft Restoration Society (HARS) based at the Illawarra airport. The organisation & running of this much awaited event was slick & professional, from the courtesy buses taking visitors from the car park to the airshow entrance, to the RAAF personnel conducting searches of bags & scanning pre purchased tickets, everything on the surface was seamless & enjoyable - behind the scenes there may have been some hiccups - If there was, then it was not apparent to the public. A little disappointment was the tiny part played by the F/a 18 Hornet, which roared in over the crowd, did a three minute display & was gone - but all the other flying diplays as well as the static displays more than compensated. In all a magnificent day out & one I hope will be repeated in the not too distant future
  • Amazing place, kids can climb all planes, friendly stuff provide great explanations. Can easily spend few hours there.
  • Great place to visit. They have made this into a really good museum. I understand that its all volunteers but i think 15$ is a bit steep.
