  • Fantastic collection of both military and civil aircraft, laid out over a wide area. The aircraft are the stars here, but the staff deserve equal mention. Knowledgeable, mostly ex military personnel.....  more

  • Had a great afternoon here, went on an Open Cockpit day, it was great fun looking at the old aircraft and actually getting inside some of them. There are plenty of aircraft to see here and it is one of the largest air museums in the Southern Hemisphere. The family deal is good $$ value. There is food available to buy, and a seated area to eat if you byo lunch. The volunteer staff were very helpful and provided interesting information about the aircraft. A fun afternoon even if you aren't into aircraft that much.
  • Really interesting little place near Caloundra. A lot more aircraft than I expected. The volunteers are great and have first hand experience and knowledge about some of the vehicles. Great rainy day activity as many of the planes are under cover.
