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.
Fantastic aviation museum with some very rare and special aircraft. Very wide range of displays all with excellent and well-presented information. Staffed by very knowledgeable and friendly ex-RAAF volunteers who lived and breathed these aircraft. A really good visit.
Ah Queensland, perfect one day, raining the next. Of course, we arrived on that 'next' day. Fortunately, the museum has a large part of the collection under cover so still managed to see and read a lot of aviation history. I think it was Kev who regaled me with some RAAF myths (the cat in the Neptune does spring to mind). A most enjoyable visit and do recommend this to those considering making the journey. Visited on 22 July 2022.
Absolute delight to talk and be greeted by the good volunteers at the air museum. They are friendly with a wealth of knowledge on the history and specifications of the aircraft on display. We were in Brisbane to go to the Ipswich Air Tattoo air force event which got cancelled due to downpour. This place was a good alternative. One thing though, I understand health and safety concerns but I hope they allow visitors to see aircraft interiors a bit more as most were closed off.
