As you would be aware the Australian Government, like other governments around the world, is having to adjust a range of plans and commitments as we work to contribute to the whole of government response to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus). To that end we have taken the decision to temporarily close our Air Force Heritage centres as of 15 Mar 2020. We look forward to welcoming you back soon.
