Founded in 1962 and run by a dedicated group of volunteers and members, the Museum has expanded its collection of not just aircraft and engines, but models, uniforms and many other items associated with Australia's aviation history.

The collection has some exceedingly rare and unique examples of Australian made aircraft including the oldest surviving Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation (CAC) aircraft - Wirraway A20-10; a Victa Air Tourer and a DAP Mk21 Beaufighter, one of only two Australian made variants left in the country and the only Beaufighter left in the world capable of ground running an engine.
The Museum also owns the oldest surviving Beaufort Bomber which is now part of a massive restoration process. This visit will be unique from other museums, as you can touch, feel, and enter many of the displays.

Following the museum tour, we will drive to the nearby DFO shops which have cafes for lunch, or BYO. There will also be time to have a look around the shops if you wish. Approx time away is 9 am to 4 pm.

Regarding transport, we can book a minibus with a driver. The cost will depend on the bus capacity, and the total cost, including tour ticket, should be approx. in the range of $30-$40 per person. Register interest by Fri Sep 23 by enrolling in the course on the U3A website, or phone or call into the office during opening days and times.

An additional person can attend if numbers permit. In this case, please contact Rita Collins with details and your invoice will be adjusted
