The exhibitions were first class. The three flight simulators were a novel inclusion. I found the controls harder to master than those of 737-800. It just shows how skilled those old-time aviators were!

Absolutely fascinating display. Interactive - you can squeeze into the cockpit & the controls actually move the flaps/ailerons. Wonderful.

great interactive displays for young and old. Dress up, fly a plane and have your photo taken, fly a simulator and learn about Bert Hinkler the aviator from Bundy.

Bundaberg has done its best to immortalise the memory of Bert Hinkler and the result is a hall that tries hard to find useful things to display. There are a few basic simulators that amuse the younger one but the overall impression is one of...More

I enjoyed reading about the life of Bert Hinkler. He is part of Bundaberg History. He obviously lived a short and colourful life. I enjoyed the simulations of driving the planes. (I had not done anything like this before) I walked through the Mon Repos...More
