  • The Aviation Heritage Museum of Western Australia, the Bull Creek Collection, is owned and operated by the Western Australian Division of the RAAF Association. The beginnings of the museum date from early 1929 when the Association was formed. The fist project the new association engaged in was to acquire the Kalgoorlie Biplane. It set about restoring the aircraft with the view of entering it in the Centenary of Perth parade that same year. The wings were too wide for the road so they were removed and placed next to the fuselage on the back of a truck for the parade. The aeroplane was donated to the WA Museum after the parade but unfortunately does not survive today. In 1959 a Mark 22 Spitfire was acquired by the Association and restored in order to serve as the centrepiece for its commemorative activities in front of its club house on Adelaide Terrace. A large library of aeroplane books and magazines was installed in the house also. New volunteers are welcome.
  • Great for a family day out! Took family there for a few hours to have a walk through the history of aviation. Nice little area with tables and chairs for family picnic but sadly limited space for nappy changing. Will definitely go back!
  • Fantastic place to go for anyone who likes planes. There's even old engines, ATC monitors, radios and the Ansett flight training simulator on display here, along with heaps of planes from Australia's history. There is also a working Merlin engine that they fire up for visitors.
  • The volunteers were fabulous, and it's great see the old aircraft, fantastic restoration, preserving Australian history
  • So much information and history, went with my partner and we both enjoyed it. Lovely staff also!
