Flying to a weekend away - share your best destinations


Recommended Posts

I did a volunteer drive today for Angel Flight (shameless plug for charity here = https://www.angelflight.org.au/). The person I had the privilege to transport had never flow to Melbourne before, but they had flown from Mallacoota to Gabo Island!

"Gabo Island?" ... yep,  he stayed in the assistant lightkeepers cottage which is heavily booked https://www.parks.vic.gov.au/bookings/place/gabo-island-lighthouse-reserve.   As a non-pilot, he said the approach was very "interesting"...it felt like they were going to fly into the cliff - presumably 06. 

There is not much information on it on Avplan, and only a little bit on Airmate (below).   My thoughts, as a low-hour pilot, is that it might be better as a spur-of-the-moment day trip on a calm day, rather than scheduled to match an accomodation booking. Anyone been there?

BTW - always happy to hear of others "secret" weekend-away flying destinations, the degree of difficulty, accomodation etc.

Three Hummock Island, off the coast of Tasmania. It has two airstrips, accomodation and wild coastal scenery. Degree of difficulty not high but you have to fly over water. From the mainland we track over King Island.
