Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A little off the beaten track at the working Nhill Aerodrome. $10 entry fee (volunteers) for a guided tour - probably ideally suited to aircraft historians / enthusiasts.

This is a small display of aircraft from the Second World War but the informations around the displays is very interesting. The museum has been funded by local people and quite a bit of the paraphernalia in the museum has been loaned from local people. It is worth a visit while in Nhill.

Nice display of planes and other memorabilia from the WWII RAAF training days. There is a sign posted walk through detailing what buildings were on site.

Knowledgeable and welcoming staff, guides as well as active participants in this marvellous project. The story of aviation in Nhill, in particular its part in WW11, including restoration and display of period aircraft. Try the Link Trainer (pilot simulator), a major training tool in WW11. It looks unthreatening but it's a real challenge. And the Anson restoration project is far advanced, another major part of the jigsaw puzzle that was RAAF training in those days.

Located at the old RAAF Base next to the Nhill Aerodrome. Compact building but well laid out display of old restored planes. Some story boards and many interesting photo displays. Volunteer guides (Basil and Craig) were friendly and knowledgeable. The Heritage Walk using the site map was an interesting way to learn more about the history of this base during WW2. Small but well presented and worth supporting.

The Museum menbers must be applauded for the effort they have put in to establish this museum and preserve the remains of the training camp. the Old War Birds on Display were great to view up close . The History and use of the airport was fantastic to hear.

Would you travel far out of your way to come here? Probably not. If you were a bit of an aviation enthusiast or war history buff and were passing through Nhill would you stop here? For sure.

This place is pretty much par for the course with these things. It has a bunch of older chaps some of whom you have to be careful not to engage with too deeply or you'll be there all day (and I say that with a smile on my face) and there are half a dozen old aircraft. There are a heap of story boards and information stands and the whole place is very clean and well presented.

Plenty of free parking and a small gift store that will have you calculating just how much you can afford to spend this place is a perfect stop on your drive or if you are in the area for any reason.

It's a must see for any Aviation / History enthusiast if you are passing through Nhill.
The volunteer staff are extremely friendly knowledgeable and very proud of this aviation museum.
It's only small but the quality of the displays are 1st class and very interesting .
There is a Avro Anson under restoration , The magnificent Wirraway trainer , in outstanding condition after thousands of hours restoration as well as a beautiful Tiger Moth.
The displays of related items are excellent , with added photos to help tell the stories.
We ended up staying for about 2 hours and enjoyed it immensely .
They are holding an Air Show on the 2nd November 2019.
We will be back for sure !

Quite small, but the place certainly does have some history. A couple of planes here, all old restored ones as well. Staff really helpful, and very informative. Even has an old flight simulator here.

My husband and I loved the restored aircrafts here, I throughly enjoyed the letters written back home too. Thank you for keep history alive, with such passion.

RV camping is also available on site, for a donation.

As we camped overnight, we were lucky enough to witness the Tiger Moth in flight. It made my day
