Croydon Aviation Heritage Centre

The Croydon Aviation Heritage Centre is located in Gore in Southland. It houses mostly aircraft from the 1920s and 30s, including an extensive collection of de Havilland aircraft. And it is unique as most of the aircraft on display actually fly.

This nationally significant museum aims to preserve and celebrate New Zealand’s civil aviation heritage. It tells the stories of pioneer aviators and their equally colourful machines. The Mandeville based Croydon Aircraft Company restored and now maintains many of the aircraft on display.
