Wow.......what an amazing discovery (thanks to the info centre). Considering it's run by volunteers this museum has a pretty cool set up. You could spent 1/2 hour to a few hours just going through. All different varieties of planes and a war services room.

Some full size aircraft and engines. Other exhibits of varying interest unless local. If you are an aviation enthusiast and are in Benalla then worth going to but don't go a long way out of your way to get there.
