  • Fighter World is an incredible experience, plan to be there all day, the exhibits are sensational and well set out and the staff of former RAAF servicemen guides are always available and ready to explain the exhibits and add their background knowledge from their own experiences, there are even two fighter planes in the collection where you can actually sit in the pilots seat. The display is fascinating we will be going back. Next door to the main hanger is where the Fighter World Cafe is located the food was well prepared, filling and generous Allan the cafe proprietor was very friendly and full of information he also has an incredible display of memorabilia and banknotes from all over the world framed and hanging on his wall and a depth of knowledge to bring them to life. All in all we spent two days admiring the exhibits. Frank Taylor.
  • During Wings over Ilawarra, this whole airfield lights up with aviation aficionados and enthusiasts. An interesting look at the history of Australian aviation.
  • A large range of aircraft, model displays, weaponry, guidance systems and missiles. The viewing deck at the rear looks out onto the runway. I saw both training jets and 4x F/A 18F when I visited. The volunteers are both knowledgeable and approachable.
  • A good selection of RAAF aircraft & relics. The cafe offers great lunch selection with good view of aircraft movements from runway.
  • Awesome meals and great service. A must see if you're in the area
