Celebrate Aussie flight at this nonprofit, community-owned aviation museum. Its collection includes a replica of the first powered airplane designed and built in the state of Queensland: the wood-and-fabric Wicko Cabin Sports. A more martial highlight is the General Dynamics F-111C, the Royal Australian Air Force’s premier strike asset until 2010. The bomber could hit supersonic speeds and was famous for producing spectacular plumes of flame at air shows and during the closing ceremonies of the 2000 Sydney Olympics.
