A little bit of context

The Nhill Aviation Heritage Centre is a small regional aviation museum commemorating the 10,000 young Australians who trained at the Nhill WW2 RAAF base. Nhill has a rich aviation history dating back to 1919 with pioneer aviators such as Charles Kingsford-Smith and Amy Johnson flying in to the delight of locals. The NAHC has a long-term goal of exhibiting 3 x historically significant aircraft; the Wirraway, Avro Ansen and a Tiger Moth. As a result of our 2015 Airshow the NAHC has been given an opportunity to purchase a very rare and immaculately restored WW2 Wirraway aircraft but we need your help!

Here’s what we’re doing about it

We've already raised a third of the money locally which is a phenominal effort considering our farming community is only just recovering from several years of drought. But we've still got another $200,000 to go to reach our target and secure this piece of Australian aviation history. That's where you come in!

You can join us

Help us stop this beauty leaving our shores, please donate to our crowdfunding page, buy our merchandise listed below and you can come visit the Wirraway at our museum when it finally comes home!
