Open once a month, the RAAF Amberley Aviation Heritage Centre has a collection of Australian military memorabilia and a limited collection of historic aircraft with previous connections to RAAF Base Amberley.

 

Stage 1 of the RAAF Amberley Aviation Heritage Centre was formally opened on 5 June 2011. Currently up to eight aircraft, including a WWII Boston, Vietnam-era Caribou and Canberra, Mirage and Sabre fighters, Iroquois (Huey) and Sioux helicopters, and an iconic F-111C may be seen on display in two hangars and complemented by smaller artefacts in display cases. Volunteers at the Heritage Centre also undertake refurbishment of aircraft.  Community and school group tours are available for groups of ten or more people by prior arrangement, on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 9am and 3pm.

 

To reach RAAF Base Amberley from Brisbane, follow the Centenary Highway to Yamanto, then the Cunningham Highway. Follow the signs to the base and then the RAAF Amberley Aviation Heritage Centre carp ark. Shuttle buses will depart the car park about every 20 minutes.  Opening Hours are every second Sunday of every month (9:00am – 3:00pm) –  Admission is free.
