Darwin Aviation Museum

Galleries, Museums and Collections

Step back in time and explore Northern Territory heritage. The Darwin Aviation Museum, located in Winnellie, Darwin, houses an impressive collection of the Territory’s aviation history and reminds us of Darwin’s frontier role in World War II.

A massive B52 Bomber dwarfs other exhibits, including Mirage and Sabre jets, a Spitfire replica, Orion P3-C, Wessex and Huey Cobra helicopters. Other exhibits include engines and armament as well as many photographs of Darwin at war, pioneer flights and record breakers. The development of the jet age is also depicted through displays and photographs.

To fully appreciate all the centre has to offer, allow yourself at least an hour and a half. Take advantage of the guided tours, video presentation and one of the most extensive displays of souvenirs in the Territory.
