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.
