This little Aviation Museum was a great find, especially for my husband and his friend who love all this Aeronautical. Lots of planes on display with written history of the planes. Took a few hours to look around and well worth the stop.

We stopped by here on the way back from ormiston gorge. Run by volunteers who are eager to engage with you and chat about facts or answer questions. Entry is by donation. It was worth stopping by but only held our interest for about 30min.

This is an interesting place to visit with a comprehensive history of air transport in this area. It is unbelievable what the early pilots did in difficult conditions. Worth a visit if you are at Araluen Cultural Precinct.

We took some time to wander around the Araluen Arts Precinct on a Sunday afternoon and stumbled across this museum. The kids enjoyed walking around the planes.

So enjoyed the two hangars. I've loved aircraft all my love. As part of the Cultural Precinct, well worth the extra time. It was warm, 37C, and quite humid, very little air conditioning, we are talking original tin hangars here. Staff so friendly and helpful,...More
