The extraordinary life of Sir Hubert Wilkins

Presented by Carolyn Spooner

Our first monthly meeting for 2024 will be held on Monday 19 February when Carolyn Spooner is our speaker with her topic being The extraordinary life of Sir Hubert Wilkins. Some of you will recall that Caroline was scheduled to be our speaker on this topic earlier this year but a power failure in the Community Hall caused a last minute cancellation of the meeting.

George Hubert Wilkins (1888-1958) was born and raised at Mount Bryan East in South Australia at the fringe of viable agricultural land and beyond the Goyder Line. He went on to become a cinematographer, naturalist, explorer, aviator and submariner and his expeditions took him to the Arctic, Antarctic, Eastern Europe, and tropical Australia. Indeed, an “EXTRAORDINARY LIFE”.
