The Hinkler Hall of Aviation is an air museum in Bundaberg, Queensland, Australia focused on the legacy of Australian aviator Bert Hinkler. The museum opened in 2008 alongside the Hinkler House, and was designed to accommodate up to 34,000 visitors per year. 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.

  • A unique museum to the area, it looks small on the outside but rather big on the inside. We enjoyed learning all about Hinkler's childhood and adventurous life and love of aviation. There is a small part dedicated to the NSAS Challenger disaster. As it is a small museum, I think the price is a bit too high, but this place is great for kids. Plus included in your ticket is self-guided house tour.
  • Loved it! Great tour! Fantastic story that every Australian should know about. The highlight of our stay in Bundaberg.
