Illawarra Light Railway Museum, Albion Park

See the Qantas 747-400 that made history with a nonstop flight from London to Sydney or the Lockheed Super Constellation airliner of the 1950s. The Historic Aircraft Restoration Society museum is home to these aircraft and more, including vintage warplanes and an F-111 cockpit.

For spectacular flying displays, the annual Wings Over Illawarra is a compelling event. You’ll see brilliant aerobatics and flying vintage warplanes at this two-day air show. Throughout the year scenic joy flights over the majestic NSW South Coast depart from the airport. Flying lessons are available, too.

A short drive west is Macquarie Pass National Park and Cascades picnic area. The Cascades walk is in a rainforest along a creek to a pretty waterfall. You might be lucky and spot platypus and lyrebirds. Enjoy the winding drive up Macquarie Pass through the rainforest escarpment to Robertson, in the Southern Highlands.
