The Royal Australian Air Force Museum is located at Point Cook, near Melbourne. Point Cook is the birthplace of the Australian Flying Corps (AFC), which was renamed to the Royal Australian Air Force following its success in World War I. RAAF Base Point Cook was the Air Force’s only base from 1912 to 1925, when RAAF Base Richmond and RAAF Base Laverton were built.
The RAAF Museum pays tribute to the history of the Air Force and houses an extensive collection of memorabilia and stories of Australia’s military aviation expeditions. Learn about the history of Air Force training, advancements in military aircraft, the role of Air Force personnel, women in the Air Force, local and overseas missions, and so much more.
There is also an exciting collection of retired Air Force aircraft, such as those used for training, reconnaissance, striking, bombing and air and sea rescues.
