Scrapped at Moorabbin in 1961 four years after being withdrawn from use. Despite what is stated in multiple places online, this is not the aircraft that was converted into CA-28 Ceres VH-SSF. That was converted from CA-16 A20-129 purchased by CAC in 1958 as a direct disposal from the government. Both aircraft existed at the same time, the Ceres initially registered as VH-CEO in January 1961. Source: Geoff Goodall.

Built as a CA-7, modified in 1945 as a CA-20. To Australian Navy in 1952. Sold for scrap presumably when the Navy withdrew its Wirraways in 1958.

Sold by the RAAF to Marshall's Spreading Service at Albury with a plan to convert it to a cropduster. That never happened and the aircraft remained in storage until acquired by the Camden Museum of Aviation, which displayed it in its RAAF colours.

This Wirraway was not brought on RAAF charge, as A20-722, until right at the very end of the Second World War, in August 1945. It served until 1958 when it was sold and eventually recovered from a farm near Horsham, Vic. It was restored to flying condition by Borg Sorensen between 1984 and 2002. Registered VH-CAC(4), it made its first post-restoration flight on 8 June 2002. It made its last flight on 28 April 2018 on delivery to the Nhill Aviation Heritage Centre.
