  • An incredible place to visit. Definitely worth taking a trip down here, the staff are so friendly and the coffee from the cafe was lovely whilst watching the planes take off
  • Maginificient collection of Royal Australian Airforce's aircraft, arms and amunations.great place to visit to know the history of RAAF. All the staffs are very very helpful with tremendous knowledge.
  • Kids and adults will love this place. You need to check if the aircraft flight display is on before as it does not always take place.
  • We loved it and kids loved it. Educational, all about worlds 2nd oldest airforce. Free entry, lots to see, great value gift and coffee shop. Shame not much to get close to or be interactive with.
  • Been here half a dozen time, it's a great place for an aviation buff. Seen a few flying displays by our own RAAF Roulettes, just breath taking....hats off the guys flying them. The display aircraft at the museum are nice to see too. Plan out such that you can grab a view of the flyby's which happen thrice a week.
