The Caboolture Warplane & Heritage Museum with the history it preserves for all to see
Latest: At last, after shutting the doors in March due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we will re-open to the public at 9 am Saturday June 13.
We are looking forward to welcoming visitors to our museum and as well as providing them with the opportunity to see our great range of memorabilia and the warbirds in the hangar, we can also offer the chance to book an adventure flight or scenic flight directly through the museum.
The Caboolture Warplane Museum has been established to present and preserve part of the nation's history with a focus on Military aircraft.
The Museum's concept is to host aircraft that have been restored to flying condition and perform regularly in air shows and aviation events around the country.
Currently our flying warbirds consist of P51D Mustang VH-MFT, CAC Winjeel - Australian designed and built training aircraft and North American SNJ - American built training aircraft
Apart from the operational aircraft, the Museum has an extensive range of displays and exhibits depicting much of Australia's flight heritage, ranging from the start of military aviation right through the latest acquisitions.
These include a large range of aircraft engines of various kinds, considerable wartime memorabilia, a display dedicated to Leonard Waters a fighter pilot of WW2 of aboriginal descent, a Huey helicopter, F111 crew module, wreckage from the crash of an Australian built Lincoln bomber that crashed on Mt Superbus and aircraft navigation equipment.
The Museum is located at Hangar 101, 157 McNaught Road, Caboolture Queensland 4510
How to find us is easy.
About 30 minutes north of Brisbane, along the Bruce Highway.
Take the Bribie Island exit and turn, left on to Aerodrome Road, then turn right into McNaught Road.
Hangar 101 is approx. 200 metres, further along at the left hand side.
Remember the Caboolture Warplane & Heritage Museum is available and open to visitors from 9am to 3pm most days, low admission price, only 40 minutes from Brisbane city & 30 minutes from Caloundra plus really close to Bribie Island beaches.
