Queensland Air Museum Reviews
We went on an afternoon when we were all beached out and had the most incredible time. There are planes everywhere, a helicopter our kids played in for quite some time, and volunteers who say things..... more »
This is a great collection of over 80 planes with all the memrobillia to go with it. This is all run by volunteers. Some of the displays are undercover, while others are in full sun. Don't forget to..... more »
Have been a few times over the years and never disappointing. Only had an hour to kill while waiting for someone to pick me up and was happy to pay the $20. The F111, new since I'd last been, was worth that on its own. A great range in the collection and a treat for any aeroplane enthusiast.
The air museum was amazing very friendly staff and volunteers and the artifacts were just mind blowing. Such an awesome experience to see the history of our nation and the impact it had on people back then and the sacrifices they made for future generations.
