Bundaberg North Queensland
The Hinkler Hall of Aviation has become a major tourist destination in Bundaberg, showcasing many original artefacts and full sized replica planes. The form of the building is aviation inspired, with a large volume of space to house the replica planes using similar construction materials to actual aircraft hangers. External landscaping utilises aerofoil/ leap shapes, tying in with the surrounding botanical gardens.
