The RAAF Wagga Aviation Heritage Centre is located in the old Guard House at the entrance to RAAF Base Wagga at Forest Hill, ten kilometres east of the CBD of Wagga Wagga, along the Sturt Highway.

The goal of the RAAF Wagga Aviation Heritage Centre is to showcase the history of the Air Force, the history of the RAAF in the Riverina, the role of RAAF Base Wagga in preparing the Air Force workforce, and the special relationship between the Base and the local community.

The Aviation Heritage Centre showcases important artefacts and memorabilia representing over 80 years of Air Force history.

Elements on display have been classified into initial recruit training, aviation trade, clerical and supply training for ease of viewing. Other important elements of the history of the Base are also displayed throughout the various rooms.

In the Memorial Precinct there are five static display aircraft (Canberra Bomber, Meteor, F111-C, Macchi and Mirage). There is a water tank mural dedicated to the Empire Air Training Scheme covering, Wagga, Uranquinty, Tocumwal, Deniliquin, Narrandera, Temora, Cootamundra, Parkes and Narromine. In addition, there is a replica of a WWII Chapel that was originally built at Coomalie Creek by members of 31 Beaufighter Squadron.
