We are updating you regarding activities at the hangar because of continuing developments with the Coronavirus pandemic and the advice from the Australian Government
These decisions have just been made:
- The hangar and museum will be CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC from Tuesday 17th March until Tuesday 28th April. We will advise if this changes.
- The Shrine of Remembrance in Melbourne is now closed to the public because of the Coronavirus pandemic. Therefore, the Commemorative Service that was to be held at 11.00am on Monday 23 March 2020 has had to be cancelled. We apologise to all who intended to be there. The service is now scheduled for 23 March 2021.
- The Pre-Anzac Day Lunch that was scheduled to be held in the hangar on Saturday 18th April has been cancelled. Again, we apologise to all who intended to be there.
We will continue to advise members and the public as any news comes to hand.
Following the announcement of further State and Federal restrictions we have decided to close the hangar to volunteers as well as visitors until further notice.
Take care everyone and stay safe.

This is the only remaining Liberator in the Southern Hemisphere and is one of only eight still existent in the world.
This intricate restoration work is proceeding in one of the impressive World War II hangars on the old Werribee airfield - just outside Melbourne in Victoria. It is our intention to eventually have the airframe completely restored.
