Albion Park is known for its wonderful small museums. The Illawarra Light Railway Museum is dedicated to the small steam and diesel powered locomotives that served in the mining and agricultural industries. The Tongarra Museum illustrates the history of the Illawarra with artefacts, photographs, historical documents and sketches.
For flying buffs, Albion Park’s Illawarra Regional Airport is a great place to experience the thrills of flying in a light aircraft, while the Historical Aircraft Restoration Society Museum features fully restored and operational aircraft ranging from small Cessnas to Tiger Moths.
Based at the airport, the Sydney Microlight Centre offers professional pilot training and introductory flights. This is the closest approved microlight training facility to Sydney.
