Point Cook Coastal Park, Homestead and RAAF Museum

October 15 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm



Join us for an informative day touring the RAAF Museum at the historic RAAF Williams-Point Cook, the birthplace of aviation in Australia; the environmentally important Point Cook Coastal Park; and the locally significant Point Cook Homestead. 

The RAAF Museum is a Unit of the Royal Australian Air Force, and houses the country’s largest collection of military aircraft. The museum has recently reopened after the completion of important infrastructure works that aim to improve visitor accessibility, as well as significant new exhibition installations across the precinct to enhance the visitor experience.

The Point Cook Coastal Park provides feeding areas for many birds. Various shorebird species can be seen at low tide on the mudflats or taking shelter within the trees and wetlands. Today we will emulate these birds and stop here for lunch.

The Point Cook Homestead was the original home of Thomas and Andrew Chirnside, the builders of the mansion at Werribee Park. We will have time to explore the homestead and its grounds, and the nearby viewing tour.

Motafrenz last made this trip in November 2007!
