The Fleet Air Arm Museum has a awesome display of aircraft spanning the complete history of Australian Naval Aviation. There are also media displays about various events in our rich military history & also a great souvenir shop. A wonderful museum well worth a look.

Loved everything in this museum. Amazing displays and so lovingly cared for. Only $10 entry for a couple of hours of enjoyment. The gift shop had some great things to buy too.
