Time Out says

The RAAF base at Amberley is the largest Air Force base in Australia, with an incredible 5,000 personnel employed there. At the base's Aviation Heritage Centre the public can access static displays of aircraft and other RAAF-related exhibits. There are 14 types of aircraft on show ranging from an Australian-designed Boomerang WWII fighter plane to a replica of the British WWI biplane the Sopwith Camel. One of the most popular planes is the sleek form of a 1968 F-111 tactical attack jet. Special displays feature missiles and armaments, WWII jeeps, and there’s a new collection being compiled on the subject of women in the air force. You can learn about the history of the No 23 squadron, and pick up a scale model of your favourite aircraft from the gift shop as a memento. Visits are by appointment only; check the website for details.
