Sir Hubert Wilkins cottage is one of the key draw cards to our region. Sir Hubert is one of many people who have been recognised internationally for their contribution to furthering knowledge through his courageous exploration both in the air and under the ocean. His boyhood home had fallen into ruin until locals with the help of Dick Smith set about restoring it to a near original replica and continues to maintain the cottage until this day.
Keys are available through the Olde School Gallery to go through this cottage and share a true insight into the country that inspired Wilkins, with the majestic Mt Bryan, Goyder's Line with the dramatic changes in the ecosystems and the rugged red creek beds.
A short drive back through Mt Bryan East and along Dare's Hill gives a stunning view as the country crops dramatically down an escarpment to the outback. Many interesting old ruins and dramatic landscapes great the keen photographer and keep children amused.
At the beautiful Hallett Hall, you have the chance of seeing the new history room and more memorabilia on Tuesdays and Thursdays or by appointment.
