The RAAF Amberley Aviation Heritage Centre is a must-see attraction for those visiting south-east Queensland, especially if interested in military aviation history.
Opened in June 2011, the Heritage Centre has a range of displays, including a World War II Boston Bomber, courtesy of the Papua New Guinea Government, a Vietnam-era Canberra bomber, Caribou airlifter, Sabre and Mirage fighter jets, F-111s, a Pilatus Porter, Sioux and Iroquois helicopters, and even an immaculate WWII Jeep.
The Heritage Centre is housed in four hangars and will grow as more aircraft and artifacts are restored, loaned or donated for display.
