We went to the museum as my 4 year old son and husband love all types of airplanes. We went on a Friday morning so it was fairly quiet. On entering the staff/volunteers were very friendly and were happy to answer any questions we had about the planes. There is a huge display of planes. Definitely recommend a visit to... More

Queensland Air Museum outwardly may seem a little poky. This is because it is run by dedicated volunteers who care more about the internal content. Please do visit and see the centerpiece, the F111.

The Air Museum has great volunteers that explain the layout of the grounds. It is good to be able to climb up and have a look in some of the displays and even go inside a couple of them. Would recommend making the time to visit this museum and the entry fee is very reasonable. $10 for concession holders and... More

If you have any interest in planes, and the part they have played in world and Australian history over the last 114 years - yes, since Wilbur's and Orville's flight back in 1903 - this is definitely the place to visit. Not only can you see about seventy lovingly restored and preserved aircraft, but you can see scale models of... More

A large and varied selection of aircraft to view up close and some to sit in also. This venue has aircraft that are rare and also includes military aircraft in the museum which is great for enthusiasts and my favourite the DC3 passenger plane.

Who would have thought that one of the best air museums in Australia would be located in a (seemingly) small hangar on the Sunshine Coast in Caloundra. This place is amazing - not only do they have a wonderful collection of beautifully restored and maintained aircraft, but the work is all done by knowledgeable volunteers without any government support. The... More

This museum has a fantastic collection of Australian aircraft from the 1930-40s right up to recently including an F-111. The documentation, descriptions and notes are fantastic and there are lots of other displays about aviation history in Australia to look at. If you are interested in planes you can easily spend more than half a day here. Probably good for... More

The kids had such a fun (& educational) time at the aviation museum. They have been nagging to return. The volunteers there really love what they do and it shows. They go above and beyond to inform you about fun facts. An honourable mention to Lisa, she was great and has sparked interest in flying for my daughter. :)
