Aviation history museum tour guides
The Caboolture Warplane & Flight Heritage Museum is located next to Caboolture Airfield. Our goal is to help visitors learn about the history of military and civil aviation. Volunteers are essential to keep the museum running, and we’ve been around for 36 years thanks to their efforts.
We need people who can give personalized guided tours. Besides the aeroplanes you can see in action, there are many displays showing Australia’s flight history. As a tour guide, you’ll teach visitors about planes used in different wars and share stories from World War II to the Vietnam War. You’ll also welcome guests, answer questions, sell items, and make friends with other volunteers. We’re happy to have former military members and regular people who can talk to individuals or groups. We’ll teach you about the exhibits as you go.
Immerse yourself in this fulfilling journey. Our comprehensive operational manual and volunteer guidebook are at your disposal. You can take all the time you need, collaborating closely with our seasoned guides to delve into the exhibits and absorb their stories. But there’s more to this endeavor than knowledge alone – our volunteer community is a gateway to forging new friendships, engaging in kitchen conversations over coffee, and playing a vital role in transforming our museum into an unparalleled experience.
We’re seeking individuals who resonate with our vision, individuals like you who can become an integral part of our future plans. Can you volunteer one day a week or more?
Thank you for thinking about the lasting importance of telling both the good and bad parts of history and making the stories of those who gave everything come alive.
Personalised tour guides tell the stories you might never have known.
People form a necessary link in the chain to carry on the Museum’s thirty-six years existence. Those who went before and those who come after will carry the baton, knowing the part they played is important and without your support, inherent interest and driving passion to keep the stories alive, this museum wouldn’t survive as long as it has.
Should our paths cross and you find your way inside the front door, we hope you find the friends you meet will never be forgotten and the customers you meet for a short time on a daily basis, will never forget you and the stories you told. Thank you for considering there’s a never-ending value in representing the best and worst of history and bring to life the stories of those who sacrificed their all.
We are always looking for people to volunteer their time and expertise. The museum would not be open if not for the commitment by our volunteers for personalised tours, maintenance of the museum and its displays. Let us know what you would like to offer and send us an enquiry.
