The Nhill Aviation Heritage Centre is hosting an action-packed day on Saturday, March 10th, 2018, featuring ‘wheels’ of all sorts and sizes. Visitors are invited to participate in the ‘Wheels for the Wirraway’ event at the aerodrome by bringing any form of wheels, from roller skates to trucks, ride-on mowers to classic cars and everything in between.
Nhill will reach its Centenary of Flight in 1919 when it is anticipated that the Nhill Aviation Heritage Centre will hold another fantastic Fly In.
In 1941 Nhill welcomed the RAAF to use the Nhill aerodrome as a WWII training base. It is one of only a few still laid out as it was in 1945. Nhill is known for its Hospitality and Innovation born of a pioneering past and still alive in the community today. Come and enjoy a weekend at the Nhill Aerodrome. Follow the Heritage Walking Track. View our photographic displays. Learn about our aviation history and be amazed by the ongoing restoration of our Avro Anson. RV Camping is available on site by donation. Joy flights can be arranged in advance. There is plenty to do in and around Nhill and throughout the Hindmarsh Shire.
