Museums

Description

The Tocumwal historic aerodrome museum documents the history of and the importance of Mcintyre airfield in Tocumwal, and also post-war operations when over 700 aircraft were scrapped for aluminium. Later the airfield became a famed gliding destination. Tocumwal is famous for many things - stunning beaches, the redgum forests on the outskirts, a fantastic golf course, the giant cod, glider and b24 replicas on poles, but Tocumwal is also famous for its role during ww2. The town was used as a major base by us during the war effort, but then after the war ended, the area around the airfield became a massive aircraft graveyard and many hundreds of planes were chopped up, stripped and melted down. You will find a wealth of information in the museum - stories, maps, photos, news articles and scale models. The presentation can be arranged on request.
