Create an itinerary including Darwin Aviation Museum
Visit the Darwin Aviation Museum to learn about Australia's colorful history in flight. See 19 aircraft on display, including a B-25 Mitchell Bomber, Mirage and Sabre jet fighters, and an Australian Navy Wessex helicopter that helped clean up Darwin after Cyclone Tracy hit on Christmas in 1974. The 38 displays include videos of the bombing of Darwin in World War II and a depiction of pioneers Ross and Keith Smith in flight in 1919. Bring drinking water with you if the weather's warm because it can become quite hot inside the hangar. A visit to Darwin Aviation Museum represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Darwin trip planner to plot your vacation.

  • Very extensive exhibition. Only found this by chance as no information at the tourist information centre…. Worth a visit to see the B52 bomber…it’s huge.

  • This is really worth visiting especially for WWII buffs. Good collection of all sorts of aircraft and a couple of interesting videos to watch. There is a little cafe and shop there.

  • Lots of interesting information, stories and old relics to explore. Office and shop are air conditioned. The hanger is breezy with fans.
  • Amazing experience that was made extra special by Steve who personally took a moment out of his time to walk around and show us some of the amazing aircraft. A shout out to Steve from Ashton, Lee and I, you made our day. Thank you so much.
