Hinkler Hall of Aviation

Galleries, Museums and Collections

Come and be amazed by the awe inspiring, dynamic and unique structure of soaring glass and steel made in the shape of an aircraft wing. Set in the lush Bundaberg Botanic Gardens, the Hinkler Hall of Aviation brings to life the adventures and achievements of Australia’s famous pioneer solo aviator Bert Hinkler.

Become part of the story through interactive displays; fly like Bert on the distinctive glide simulators, be enthralled by Bert’s life achievements and personal story in the movie theatrettes, sit in the replica Avro Baby aircraft and also view the original from his record setting 1921 flight. With numerous full size display aircraft exhibits and unique museum artefacts, including the beautifully restored Hinkler House ‘Mon Repos’, Bert Hinkler’s relocated Southampton home, this memorable and extraordinary experience in Bundaberg, Queensland is a must do aviation adventure.

Hungry? Take in the surrounding Botanic Gardens flora and fauna while you relax and enjoy fresh delicious meal options and coffee at Café 1928, an exclusive experience in a truly unique setting.
