“Sir Hubert Wilkins – Forgotten Hero?”
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Robin Back.
Doors open 7:30PM
Highly accomplished explorer, award winning cinematographer, record breaking sub-mariner and pioneering aviator, Australian born Sir Hubert Wilkins was a true hero of his time with ticker tape parades in New York and global news coverage celebrating his amazing acts of derring-do and serious exploration. Why is it then that few, today, have heard of him and even fewer know of the length and breadth of his exploits? Jim McNeill presents a thought provoking potted history and relates it to modern-day exploration.
