About Us

Anchored by Kmart, Coles and Woolworths, Hinkler Central is your local shopping destination in Bundaberg. With over 60 specialty stores including fashion, homewares, health and beauty, professional services such as a Doctor’s surgery, the Centre is etched deep in the hearts of the Bundaberg community.


Hinkler Central has a flood barrier system that is installed for the duration of the annual wet season as a precaution to protect Centre entrances and equipment, in case of unprecedented weather events. This includes a demountable slat wall system, which when needed, is fixed to the concrete apron surrounding the travelators, forming a solid wall to hold water out.

Here is a time lapse video of the installation of the system.
