  • Massive range of vintage aircraft, my kids loved it and as an aviation buff myself we spent a few hours there. Very cheap entry
  • Really amazing how there are over 70 planes in display! Shows how awesome aviation history was here in Queensland
  • Friendly staff and over 70 aircraft to look at (including the rare Beechcraft 2000a Starship) with information on nearly every single one of them. Highly recommended.
  • Definitely worth a visit. Very exciting place with lots of cool airplanes. The voulenteers are very friendly and know lots of facts.
  • So many interesting aircraft packed into a small area.
