The RAAF Wagga Aviation Heritage Centre showcases Air Force history, along with representing the significant involvement of the RAAF in the Riverina region of New South Wales. The static display aircraft next to the Aviation Heritage Centre represent over 50 years of RAAF flying history and are completely accessible for the public to view and photograph. The display comprises Air Force heritage artefacts displayed in various themed rooms, including a 'Community Room', which is devoted to a rotational display that relates to military history and/or the contribution made by people from Wagga Wagga and the Riverina region and the "Riverina Room" which hosts an interactive display of bases established in the Riverina. As the last remaining Riverina World War II Base within a network of bases incorporating Narrandera, Temora, Deniliquin, Tocumwal and Uranquinty; this Aviation Heritage Centre represents the only repository for regional specific RAAF memorabilia.

Go to see the planes, it anyway just by the road. Museum doesn't have much to offer but you can get up and close with air crafts which were functional in army as little as 5 years ago

The Centre is a small place manned by some enthsiastic ex Air Force gentlemen. Not a big display. Cannot get near the Air Crafts and takes about an hour to look around
