Wangaratta Airport Located 233km north-east of Melbourne, Wangarratta is the home of Airworld, The Aviation Museum. The Museum is dedicated to preserving Australia's aviation history for the benefit of future generations. Airworld is the world's largest collection of flying antique civil aircraft. The museum is owned and operated by the Rural City Of Wangaratta and features over 30 rare and 30 rare and historically significant aeroplanes as well as a large collection of antique bicycles, motorbikes and trucks.

Wangaratta was first seen by Europeans when explorers Hume and Hovell passed by in 1824 and twelve years later Major Mitchell passed on his return to Sydney. The crossing of the Ovens River at Wangaratta became the most common point for early travellers along the route from Melbourne to Sydney and a town sprang up around it. As gold was discovered in the area, notably at Beechworth in 1852, the towship became a popular crossing and the punt operator, 'Billy the Puntman' was said to have earned up to $200 a day ferrying prospectors and diggers across the river.

The gold rush also brought bushrangers to the area. Among the most notorious of these was 'Mad Dan Morgan'. His headless remains are in the Wangaratta Cemetery. Ned kelly and his gang were captured at Glenrowan just south of Wangaratta.

Today Wangaratta is a vibrant city perfectly situated for touring the many wineries of the area, taking excursions to the snowfields only an hour east, or to the Murray River just to the north.

There are many things to see and do in the town. Just east across the freeway at the airport is Drage Air Museum, housing a collection of historic planes and memorabilia which is well worth visiting. In the centre of town Merriwa Park offers plenty of room to picnic and relax in leafy surrounds, and the King George Gardens are a pleasant respite in the centre of the city.
