I have to say that it was a bluddy hot day at Amberley Air Base and with the humidity close to oppressive It’s hard to stay positive and focused. There are 4 hangars (ovens) housing the displays which seem pretty extensive and interesting enough, but...More

This museum is not well publicized but it is worth the security checks that you are required to go through to get there. Once there the friendly and knowledgeable staff guide you around the various exhibits while adding background knowledge and anecdotes.

This is a true heritage centre and well worth the look. A greta collection of aircraft including helicopters. Fantastic history displays about the Amberley base also and how it served Australia. I highly recommend a viewing when Open but check on Opening Times.

This is a great way to spend a Saturday morning. Run by volunteers, you are able to see a fair amount of our aviation history. I have been a fan of the F111 and to still be able to see one on show is worth...More
