J.A. (Lex) Rowland Gallery

On loan from Queensland Museum, Bert Hinkler’s original Avro Baby aircraft is on display within the J.A. (Lex) Rowland Gallery at Hinkler Hall of Aviation. It was in this aircraft that Bert set two records, namely his 1920’s London to Turin flight and his 1921 flight from Sydney to Bundaberg.

The Gallery also sets the stage for various traveling exhibitions. Check out the events and promotions page for details of current and upcoming gallery exhibitions.
