“Good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

Tucked away, no toilets just a carpark but the viewing area for the planes is good. More side on when we were there but a good free destination for plane buffs and to takes kids.

“Great, even Wheel chair access”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

I had a few days off work and thought i would come and see the airplanes. Well sign posted turn off the Tonkin Hwy heading towards the international airport at Horrie Miller Drive, Second round about and turn left (Dunreath Road), follow the windy road around the outside of the airport runway and to the right there is a viewing platform sign, small carpark.
You have ramps all the way up from the carpark to the top of the viewing platform, even seats on every bend so if you need to sit and rest you can.
At the top you have a great view of the incoming planes they land almost right in front of you.
This was great, it is free and worth the effort.

“Great free facility”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

A new viewing area provided by the airport to observe take off and landings.

The facility is a short drive from the present domestic terminal and is clearly signposted.

The platform is a raised area that has been built on landscaping. It has limited shelter and a few seats. A few pictures of aircraft and a map of the airport complete the set up.

A large free car park is situated at the bottom of the ramp. Entrance to the viewing area is also free.

There are no other facilities, i.e. toilets or water.

The views from the platform are excellent, average or bad depending on which of the two runways are in use and the direction of take off and landings.

If the landings are from the right to the left on the runway immediately in front of you, views are superb and close up. If the direction is reversed most aircraft stop before the end of the runway and may only be seen turning off. Take offs will be high in front of you. Aircraft using the other runway may only be seen in the distance.

Probably an excellent free attraction to take the kids to for an hour or so, particularly if the aircraft are landing by you.

Open 06.30 – 19.00 in the summer, and shorter hours in the winter

If you are into planes then this is the place to go it feels like you are right on the tarmac. You see the planes take off and landing the young ones just love it.
