See the massive B52 Bomber and the other impressive exhibits that detail the Territory's aviation history and Darwin's frontier role in World War II.

Step back in time and explore Northern Territory heritage. The Australian Aviation Heritage Centre, 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, 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 range of souvenirs.
