B-24 Liberator Aircraft Restoration
Jan. 2020 • Solo
Well worth a visit to see such a big aircraft being restored. Only costs $5 dollars to get in & one of the volunteers will give you a guided tour of this big beast. They have a display of memorabilia & a gift shop.

Living History
Sep. 2019
If you're into WW2 history and aircraft, I highly recommend this as a day out. The fantastic part is you can touch and feel the aircraft and stick your head up into it to really appreciate what our forbears did to protect our future. They have engine start-up days as well so you can experience the roar of a 12 cyl radial engine. Tons of memorabilia for you to see as ell. Plus its a working museum so you can talk to the guys doing the restoration as well.

Bringing back a survivor!
Jun. 2019 • Couples
For anyone with an interest in WW2 Aviation, a visit here is a must. A dedicated team working to bring this aircraft back to static but taxiable (ultimately) condition. You can get “up close and personal” and really see the detail that goes into such a mammoth task. There are other displays as well and a small shop with interesting souvenirs. I’ll go again in a couple of years.

A Pilgrimage Which Turned Into a Fantastic Experience
Jul. 2019 • Couples
Attended here as my father flew in these during WW11. A personal pilgrimage turned into a fantastic experience.
We were walking around the restoration when one of the volunteers gave us a guided tour. This whole complex in an experience and exists largely on donations and visitors which should be supported by the Federal Government through the War Memorial due to the contribution of the aircraft and aircrew to Australia's defence in WW11.
I recommend you visit this living museum if you anywhere near the vicinity. The volunteers are wonderful people who provide a glimpse into an Australia that once was and will soon be forgotten with time.

What a surprise - Well Worth The Visit For Any Aviation Buff
Mar. 2019 • Family
My family and I visited as part of our trip to the Avalon Airshow as a way to spend a morning prior to flying home.

What a surprise and well worth the visit. The small entry fee is well worth the visit to see a piece of Australian aviation history and the volunteers could not have been more helpful and informative.

I highly recommend it!!!

Historic site worth the small entry fee
Feb. 2019 • Family
Living locally we encourage our visitors to go in and check out this restoration in progress, only a handful of the planes still exist and you are able to climb aboard and get the feel for what the heros of WW2 had to deal with.

I hate the term ‘hidden gem’, but am struggling to find a better superlative. I am lucky enough to know a 94 year RAAF veteran pilot who saw active service in WW2 on Liberators and lots of other conflicts and types in the course of a long service career. We have been visiting many of the aviation sites near Melbourne, and this one is not to be missed. I emailed them prior to our visit to check its suitability for a visit as my friend isn’t v mobile, and they arranged a highly knowledgeable guide to talk us through the work that is being undertaken there - a real labour of love with apologies for another tired cliche. Another volunteer carried a chair to allow my friend to sit while we were shown the various elements of this magnificent aircraft on its transformation from wreck to a fitting tribute to the many service personnel who operated them in sometimes trying circumstances.
My sincere thanks to all who made our visit to the museum such a memorable and happy one.
I have one minor gripe which has to be directed ultimately to the Victorian State Government. Please allow some additional signage to be erected to attract and guide would be visitors to this site. It deserves to be a more mainstream attraction. I have made many serendipitous discoveries on my travels by following the brown road signs which promise a local landmark or place of interest. The first one I saw for here was right outside the hangar that houses the Liberator as I started to wonder if google maps had led me up the garden path. More visitors means more funds for a highly worthwhile cause. Get yourselves over here, immerse yourself in living history, and make a small financial contribution (entry is only $5) to the preservation of our heritage for future generations.
