I took the kids to Fighterworld during the school holidays this year. To say it was awesome is an understatement. There is so much to see and do, and the history of our fighter aircraft is amazing. Highly recommend this as a must see.

Enjoyed a few hours wandering through the 2 hangers and seeing all the old planes. Was really interactive and hands on. The volunteers were lovely and happy to answer any questions. I found it very interesting and well worth a visit.
