This had been on my list of things to do for a while now and as such it was the ideal activity to do on a Sunday with kids. First and foremost - make sure you bring ID with you as since this is an active airbase for the RAAF they still are strict with security. Secondly - parking is... More

Even if you don't have a real interest in Aviation this place is worth a visit and any child would love seeing the old planes up close. So much to see. We only had a couple of hours here and that really wasn't enough. So much to look at and the little shop has a wide range of gifts to... More

The RAAF Base at Point Cook is the birthplace of the Australian Flying Corps and the Royal Australian Air Force, the museum tells one of Australia's most important aviation stories, that of the second oldest air force in the world. Entry is free but well worth the gold coin donation. There is tour although we just strolled through by our... More

This is my second visit to the Point Cook RAAF Museum. Just amazing that this is one of the oldest training facilities in the world. Has a great range of old and recent fighter aircraft and covers the full history of the RAAF. Just a great viewing experience where you can get up close to the aircraft. And Entry is... More

Point Cook has over 100 years of aviation history. Spread across several hangars is a collection of aircraft and memorabilia for the Royal Australian Air Force. Although you can go in any order we started with the memorabilia and information about the history of the RAAF and then moved on to the aircraft displays. There are aircraft from early bi-planes...

Excellent indoor displays that allow you to get up close to the aircraft and memorabilia of over 100 years of Australian military flying. The displays are well thought out - like the see-through covering on one side of the enormous Supermarine Seagull flying boat used in the Antarctic by Australia. The mounted UH-1H Huey looks great as well. If possible,... More

If you are a keen follower of aircraft through the ages from World War I to World War II, this is a great museum to visit. Besides the aircraft on display it tells the story of how gallant the allied forces were during the two world wars. Their courage and tenacity is evident from the description of their actions. The...
