  • I have been wanting to visit the Hinkler Hall of Aviation for so long as my mothers family had a connection to Bert Hinklers mother. I loved it so much, my husband who isn't much into history was absolutely amazed with the display and information. I'd dearly love to take my mother for a visit to reminisce. If you are in the region I'd highly recommend a visit.
  • Great school holiday location, ducks turtles eels ibis, good food, enjoy the train. Excellent new playground except for the burning heat on 35 degree day.
