Due to the current coronavirus situation, the Nhill Aviation Heritage Centre will once again temporarily close to the public.

In a statement on their Facebook page, the management stated that “From this weekend our centre will be closing its doors to keep our community safe.

“Check back with us in September to see what’s happening. Thank you for your understanding.”

The Aviation Heritage Centre closed in late March at the start of the first lockdown just after a visit by seven adventurers re-enacting the celebratory flight from Darwin to Adelaide after the 1919 England to Australia Air Race.

It was reopened at the start of July when the restrictions were eased, but with the current uncertain situation, the decision has been made to close again in the interests of public health.
