  • Wonderful Museum. Beautifully restored aircraft used by the RAAF and some others included. The guides and volunteers there are very knowledgeable and courteous. Cannot recommend highly enough
  • Awesome displays of fighter jets. With 2 cockpits you can sit in for a photo opportunity. Lots of displays of engine and weapons. A huge collection of hand made model planes. Nice observation deck to see the Airforce runway with the occasional spotting of fighter jets in action. Awesome
  • Has a great variety of old war planes. Great for the younger kids. Army planes jet fighters fly by from the army base next door during the week.
  • Amazing display, very knowledgeable volunteers. Wish the RAAF knew I was coming because the big toys were left in the hanger. Will just have to go again!
  • Great museum devoted to the Royal Australian Air Force. It is located within the grounds of RAAF Williamtown, Newcastle, NSW. Exhibits are magnificent and well looked after. There is a cafe, gift shop and a platform from where you can watch or spot civilian and military aircraft activity at Newcastle Airport. Staff is friendly and helpful. Fighterworld is a significant heritage centre and a must for visitors.
