Sunday Public Open Day – 20 June 21

Sunday Public Open Day

20 June 2021 @ 9:00 AM 3:00 PM

Please be aware that our Sunday Open Days are now ticketed events. You must register by booking tickets and providing the required details.

We are an active operational air base, and therefore security checks must be conducted. We are actively trying to reduce the waiting time where possible, however there may be some unexpected delays.

Each adult (16 years old and over) is required to bring the photo ID that they entered the details of when registering for a ticket. If you turn up without the correct photo ID, we unfortunately won’t be able to let you on to the base. Approved forms of ID are:

  • Australia Drivers Licence
  • Proof Of Age Card
  • Passport (This type of ID must be used for international visitors)
  • Companion Card
  • Secondary Student ID Card (under 18 with a Photo)
  • AusPost Digital ID
  • Defence ID
RAAF Amberley Front Gate

You are required to be at the Main Gate of RAAF Base Amberley at the designated time slot you have booked in for so you can be issued a visitors pass to access the base.

The Main Gate is located on Southern Amberley Road – check your GPS details to ensure it is directing you to the correct gate. You will not be permitted access via any other entrance point.

Access to the base must be via a registered vehicle (car or motorcycle). There is no bus service to the heritage centre. Visitors are not permitted to walk to the Heritage Centre from the Main Gate.

Entry is free for everyone. If you enjoy your visit and would like to show your appreciation, you can choose to make a small donation when leaving.

Please note the following conditions:

  • Photography is prohibited whilst transiting between the main gate and the heritage centre.
  • Smoking is prohibited throughout the Centre precinct.
  • Trailers and caravans are not permitted on Base.
  • Working assistance dogs are accommodated (must bring documentation), however pets are not permitted on the Base.

Instructions For Registering!!

The entry requirements for our Public Open Days has changed. Visitors are now required to register for a set session time, which are limited to a set number of spots.

Due to the limited numbers, please only book if you are definitely available and will be attending. This is a free event, and by booking and not turning up, you are taking away the opportunity for others to visit our heritage centre.

If you do register and things change unexpectedly, please cancel your ticket via the link on your order confirmation email, or let us know directly via raaf.aahc@defence.gov.au and we will make the update for you.

Tickets are unable to be sold or given to someone else as they are linked to the individual. Do not attempt to purchase tickets from those claiming to sell tickets, these are scams and you will be disappointed on the day.

  • You are to only book tickets once you have all the correct details for all members of your group.
  • Any bookings that have not been completed correctly will automatically be cancelled.
  • If your booking is cancelled, you are welcome to re-book with the correct details if tickets are still available.
