The museum's collection includes five aircraft significant to Hinkler's career: a reconstructed glider from his youth, Hinkler's original Avro Baby, a replica Avro Avian, a replica Hinkler Ibis, and a reconstructed de Havilland Puss Moth. The museum also has on display a small wooden piece of an early Hinkler glider that was carried on board the Space Shuttle Challenger and recovered after its breakup in 1986.Plan your visit to Hinkler Hall of Aviation and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Bundaberg trip planner.

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.
