I didn’t know much about Australia’s Naval aviation history so was really surprised by the enormous number of aircraft and rotary wing types on display. Really tidy little museum, with a ton of aircraft packed in. Informative and interesting videos too. Highly recommended!

Very well persevered flying machines and artifacts. Not only give a great glimpse into the birds of times gone by but also into those who flew them. Must go for people visiting Nowra, Huskisson & Batsmans bay

There are no regular air displays at Nowra sadly, but on-going flying activity occurs most weekdays and occasionally on weekends.
