The Kookaburra Memorial is dedicated to the memory of Keith Anderson and Bob Hitchcock who perished after their aircraft, the "Kookaburra", made a forced landing in the Tanami Desert on the 10th April 1929 while on their way to search for Charles Kingsford Smith and Charles Ulm.
Found fourteen days later, the wreck was abandoned until 1978 when it was recovered by aviator and adventurer Dick Smith.
The Kookaburra remains were displayed in the Memorial in 1982. Visit the Araluen Cultural Precinct.
