Here is a link to Trove, showing two reports on p11 of the Sydney Morning Herald of Jan 12 1933. In column 1, grave concerns for Bert, by then believed missing on an England - Australia flight, and in column 3, the arrival of Southern Cross after crossing the Tasman from Gerringong, NSW. This flight is commemorated by the memorial park shown in my avatar - Seven Mile Beach, seen below the park, was used for the take-off.
The wreckage of Hinkler's plane was later found on a mountainside in Italy by a shepherd boy. The plane was in two main pieces. Hinkler's body was found some 80 metres from the wreck.https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/arti ... 48/1153312
