What you will visit:

The Omaka Aviation Heritage Center
Take a fascinating glimpse into the world of the aircraft of WWI. Upon arrival at the museum, peruse a fascinating collection that blends faithful replicas and authentic aircraft. Many of the aircraft are on loan to the museum from Hollywood film director Peter Jackson. The facility presents lifelike displays composed of a spectacular collection of static and airworthy aircraft. Step back in time and learn about the heroes of yesteryear who braved the skies and view a memorabilia collection dedicated to Germany's fighter ace Manfred von Richthofen (the Red Baron). See rare planes such as the Caproni Ca.22 (the last one remaining in the world), the Fokker Dr.1 tri-plane, the de Havilland DH-4 and so much more.

What you will see along the way:
You'll delight in the pretty views along the banks of the Taylor River as seen by miniature railroad, a two-foot, narrow-gauge, heritage train, that chugs to the Omaka Aviation Heritage Center.

Shopping:

Makana Boutique Chocolate Factory
For those with a sweet tooth, there is no place as delicious as Makana boutique chocolate factory. Here you can watch as high-quality chocolates are handmade and can enjoy tasting a few of the finished products. At Makana, there are no artificial flavorings, colorings or preservatives, and all the confections are made with the finest and freshest ingredients. Once you've chosen your favorites, whether it's a macadamia butter toffee made with real New Zealand butter, classic truffles, or a mint chocolate bark, purchase them in the gift shop and don't forget something special for friends and family back home.
