Bert Hinkler's House

Bundaberg

The site of the Bert Hinkler Memorial Museum, celebrating the life of one of Queensland's pioneer aviators and Bundaberg's most famous son. The decidedly un-Queensland style is explained by the fact that this was Hinkler's home in Southampton, Hampshire, UK. On hearing of its intended demolition, a team of community minded citizens went to Southampton and dismantled it, packed it in sea containers and re-erected it back out here as a 1988 Bicentennial Project.
