The Mackay Tiger Moth Museum

The Mackay Tiger Moth Museum was formed in 1974 (then The Tiger Moth Trust) to purchase a Tiger Moth that had been restored locally and was in danger of being sold to America.

Support was gathered from the Mackay community to purchase the Tiger Moth and the Trust (now the Museum) was formed to administer the operation. The Tiger Moth is owned by the Mackay community and has been christened the "City of Mackay" to confirm its ownership.

The trust became an incorporated museum with tax deductible status and is run totally by voluntary labour from its maintenance to administration, crewing, and pilots. No one receives any remuneration for their efforts.
