First Solo!!

Did my first sole here a looong time ago! Note the shortness of the strip which makes it good for training.

I once served here when there were jets flying.

Good beach

Good beach nearby but track was hard to find!

Strip condition

The strip has recently been upgraded, including markers. It is very smooth.

Fuel

There seems to be differing rates for AVGAS. Might pay to ring ahead to negotiate.

Closed?

This great airstrip might be closed for good.

Trophy hunting, anyone?

They will cater for you up there.

Railway line

Luckily (or maybe not) the rail transport is not that advanced and under utilised and you could wait all day to see a train!

Favourite stop for lunch

My route took us from CHC to the Westcoast, past the glaciers and Mt Cook to this nice place. You need to ring ahead.

Great Hide away

If you want to get a way from it all. This strip is just around 1000 km north from Perth. Well worth it!
