Fighter World Tours

Fighter World
With everything from a classic F-111 to the first Australian-built Vampire F-30 fighter, Fighter World boasts an impressive collection of Australian fighter jets. The aviation museum, located on the Royal Australian Air Force Base in Williamtown, offers the chance to peek behind the scenes and climb into the cockpits.

The Basics

General admission to Fighter World gives you access to all the exhibitions, many of which are interactive. Highlights include the chance to sit in the cockpit of a Macchi or Mirage fighter jet; learn about the many innovations and aircraft, including Sabre, Meteor, and Vampire; see original weapons, radars, and ejection seats used in wartime; and find out how the aircraft cannons work. There’s also a sizable collection of hand-built model aircraft and an Observation Deck, where you can watch RAAF planes take off and land and listen in on air traffic control communications.
