The interactive and static displays were very good. You could try gliding like Hinkler over Bundaberg, sitting in a replica of his plane or even use a simulator of later historical planes. The video capsule was informative and the seating easy to access. Plenty to see and read here. Bundaberg is so proud of Bert!

I knew a little about Bert Hinkler as an aviator. Hinkler was born and raised in Bundaberg, Queensland and this Hall of Aviation tells of his life both here and in England. When he died in Italy he was so revered that he was given a State funeral. Take the kids here to learn about real flying. A pass into... More

Spent a good couple of hours looking through the museum and Hinkler's house. The museum is interesting and the kids loved it. The flight simulators were great fun but probably need an update (MS Flight Simulator from the 90s). Everything was well laid out and I'd definitely recommend it. The botanic gardens are also great. The Hinkler house is an... More

Very friendly and helpful staff who made us most welcome. The artefacts, photos, replica planes were exceptional, but the most fun were all the interactive displays where we could 'pilot' a plane or glide over Mon Repos Beach. A not to be missed attraction for visitors.

Thanks for a great visit and to learn about an amazing Australian taken so young but doing what he loved. Amazing to see his house moved from southern England. Great museum layout and plenty to keep the kids entertained.

The exhibition itself is exceptional. Replica planes, great photos and lots of information. Also really good interactive displays. The staff are fantastic - They were friendly and helpful. We got the multi pass that also let us into Hinklers house that was relocated from England and Fairymead House. I would recommend the Hall of Aviation to any visitor to Bundaberg.

This Bert Hinkler Hall of Aviation is for all ages. The display brings to life early Bundaberg Aviation with interactive models and technology. The kids young and old will enjoy the experience as I have on at least three occasions. Once inside, you won't want to leave.

We skipped the Distillery and instead spent two days here with the combined ticket. Loved the history and the great way it was presented on many levels. Those who just want to skim can have a quick look while if you want to go deeper the information is there. The restored Mon Repos house is lovely and you get a... More
