The Basics

General admission to Fighter World gives you access to all the exhibitions, many of which are interactive. Highlights include the chance to sit in the cockpit of a Macchi or Mirage fighter jet; learn about the many innovations and aircraft, including Sabre, Meteor, and Vampire; see original weapons, radars, and ejection seats used in wartime; and find out how the aircraft cannons work. There’s also a sizable collection of hand-built model aircraft and an Observation Deck, where you can watch RAAF planes take off and land and listen in on air traffic control communications.

We managed to see 4 fighter jets in action which was exciting to watch. Worth the visit to see the displays of the planes too.

Well worth a visit

Good for a visit, easy parking and excellent cafe, helpful staff and great exhibits. Only negative is why the runway is screened off from cafe and lawn area so you cannot see departing/landing aircraft without going upstairs to the viewing area, which is quite small, or peering through rips in screens. Probably some dumb bureaucratic reason even though cars can park at end of runway 100 metres away! But other than that its well worth a visit.
