Last Explorer - Hubert Wilkins Australia's Unknown Hero

 




Hubert Wilkins was truly the last - and one of the greatest - explorers.  Born in South Australia, he spent most of his life out of the country - but always remained an Australian. He travelled through every continent, and was a pioneer of aviation. He survived crashes and disasters, firing squads and sabotage, living long enough to be honoured by kings, presidents and dictators. He was an Australian front-line photographer in World War I. Not one to just take photographs he was twice decorated for gallantry!

He was a man credited with worldwide firsts - He took the first ever motion film of a battle (WW1 during the Ypres 1917 Battles ) , and took the first moving images from an aircraft. He was the first man to fly across the Arctic Ocean, the first to fly in the Antarctic - and the first to fly from America to Europe across the then unknown Arctic (the New York Times called this 'the greatest flight in history'). In the 1930s he spent several years travelling in western Queensland and the Northern Territory ' where many of his observations and views were ahead of their time. In the later years of his life, he did work for the US military and intelligence - and in 1958 was buried at sea at the North Pole by the US Navy.
