The RAAF Museum at Mildura Airport

the-RAAF-museum

The RAAF Museum at Mildura is a fantastic attraction commemorating Mildura’s Historic Link to the Royal Australian Air Force.

The museum has a great collection of aviation equipment and a host of stories to discover.

From 1942 until 1946 the Mildura Airfield itself was actually an RAAF Base, providing operational fighter conversion and training for pilots before they were sent off to their operational squadrons.

Emphasis has been placed on preserving the details of those who served.

Take a tour guided and the friendly volunteer staff will share their stories are valuable knowledge.

The memorial out the front is a life size bronze sculpture of an Airman, commemorating all Australian Flying Corps and Royal Australian Air Force personnel who did not return from service. Smaller black granite memorials surround the memorial and list the names of the Mildura district airmen who did not return.

Don’t forget to pick up a Souvenir on the way out!
