Knew nothing about this museum, but found it very interesting to visit with very knowledgeable staff. Opportunity to try a simulated flight & look around the Hinkler house.

This museum is awesome. It takes you through Bert Hinklers who life. Lots of animated screens, a movie and plenty to keep the kids happy. This is a real credit to Bundaberg.More

We didn't end up paying to go in as we didn't really have the time for the lot... the free info and walk around the house was very interesting and worth it.

Wasn't sure we'd go to the Hinkler Hall of Aviation but certainly glad we did! Great displays, artefacts and replicas from the life of an amazing Australian icon, who transformed aviation history and inspired early 1900 Australia. Really enjoyed the museum, his own residence and...More

I didn't know that Australia had a famous aviator being from NZ....so I found it really interesting. It is a stunning building and really well laid out. I enjoyed the flight simulators and the audio visual presentations.
