  • Well worth the visit if you are an aircraft / history lover, plenty of well maintained displays and info on the RAAF from inception through to the modern era. No flying or cafe open when I visited but the volunteers knew their stuff and were very helpful. Take the Werribee Train from Flinders Street, hop off at Williams Landing and the 497 Bus will take you to corner of Saltwater Parade, about a 2km walk to the Museum...worth the effort!
  • This is a hidden secret of Point Cook! I love all the plane displays and the historical planes displays. We were wowed by the restoration projects and the heritage gallery. I missed out on the interactive flying display and I am sure that I will revisit the museum again. There was a real sense of pride talking to the volunteers at the museum and it is a perfect place to spend your day.
  • Amazing display, with many more aircraft than I was expecting. Very professionally displayed. Very high service level by volunteers. A huge credit to themselves and the community. Well done!
  • The RAAF staff and volunteers do a great job restoring and displaying Australia's Air Force history. There are many aircraft to view and learn about and lots of information to take in. With free entry this is an museum to visit. The flying display and information session for visitors at 1pm on Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday is interesting and interactive with pilots taking questions and answers after the flights.
  • This place is really great. Make sure you get a good guide too, their knowledge is amazing. The F1-11 was the highlight for me. Beautiful aircraft.
