Hinkler Museum

The Hinkler Hall of Aviation in Bundaberg commemorates the life of Bert Hinkler, one of Australia’s pioneering aviators. The museum is home to five planes and memorabilia which showcase Bert’s inventions, innovation and historical achievements, including the first solo flight from Britain to Australia in 1928.

The Costello Seats positioned at each information kiosk, and the Hinkler Bench situated in the foyer, complement and accentuate the museum’s aeronautical forms and reinforce the notion of innovation and achievement. The Hinkler bench was commissioned as an extension of the unique shape of the highly awarded Costello Seat, which like Bert, has travelled the world with much acclaim in Italy and the UK.
