  • I became aware of the existence of HARS a few years ago when Qantas announced that they would be retiring their first 747-400 and donating her to this wonderful museum. Ever since then I have been kee...  more »
  • A great place to view the planes and sit on the captain seat. Some climbing required if you want to get into those fighters. There is a fee of $20 per head and a very friendly volunteer will take you ...  more »

  • Great place very informative and fun. You can enter a few of the planes on display including a 747 qantas, F-111 fighter jet and a fighter helicopter with 8 thousand rounds of ammo!!!!. The guides are all volunteers that have either flown planes or serviced them.
  • HARS is just amazing. Ok, I'm into aircraft but this is worth a visit for anyone, just allow a few hours for a tour which is FANTASTIC value for Money.
  • 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
