  1. There is a different park in Bundaberg called Hinkler Park. Don’t confuse it with this one, which is Hinkler Lions Park.

    1. I just had a look on WikiCamps and it seems Bundaberg is having a huge homelessness crisis due to lack of rental availability. It sounds like Hinkler has become a bit of a refuge for those without anywhere else to go, so maybe the council have closed the park for a while.
