  • Found out some history that I had no idea about. That is always a good thing to know, especially when the person fought for our freedoms that we have enjoyed.

  • Goodness me! I didn't know about this bloke, however his story is very similar to my grandfather's. Both Australians, both joined the fledgling British Air Force, both were flight instructors. And both were awarded combatants. Wow.
  • Great place to wander around stretch your legs, kids playground there as well.
  • Awesome little historic display. Well worth a stop to stretch your legs and learn a little bit about the history of Minlaton. Make sure you check out the crash zone too which is just out of town on the right towards Warooka.
  • Great place to visit for the historic value, mobile catering often there on weekend
  • Interesting find in an unexpected place. No public access to the plane but very informative exhibit. Toilets amenities, easy parking and a playground make for a good pitstop.
