Museum News

During the Museum’s closure, we took the opportunity to start some landscaping and beautification work between the Barracks building and the Display Hangar. A big thanks to Greg Wiencke, Temora Shire Council and our Museum Facilities coordinator Col Hargrave, for working collaboratively on this project. We are thrilled with the new space, and hope that you all enjoy it as much as we do!


The team have been busy as usual with two major restorations on the go as well as a few smaller projects.

Canberra Update
The restoration of the Canberra Bomber is tracking along well.

The engines have successfully completed their initial parameter and functional checks, the aircraft weight and balance checks have been carried out, and the team are fine tuning the electric start conversion. Next up are the fire bottles which are waiting to be overhauled.Exciting times as we inch closer to seeing it in the skies again!


Vampire Update
The restoration of the Vampire is also moving in the right direction.
Airframe inspections have been completed, we are waiting on some parts to arrive for the engines, and the engines are undergoing inspections for return to service.

Spitfire MkXVI
The fuel cell for the Spitfire MkXVI has been completed and is on its way back to the Museum for installation.


In today’s ever changing environment, we are pleased to still be able to welcome the public 7 days a week from 10am- 4pm. Our COVID-19 safety practices are working well, and we thank our visitors for following them.

A reminder that all Museum non-flying day entry tickets are available online HERE, to minimise contact and align with Government requirements.
