This viewing deck has been well chosen to view aircraft arriving and departing from the main runway 21-03 but not the alternate runway 06-24. A bit more thought could have gone into the infrastructure though as a lack of shade/shelter and toilets make it hard to hang around, especially with children. Wheelchair access is ok, though a long haul to... More

Right near the domestic terminal, is this airport viewing platform where you can see planes take off and land. Today, it was easiest to see the Jetstar planes taking off than it was seeing them land. Separate to watching the planes, there's quite a few signposts providing the history of the airport, and even a 120feet strip and plaques showing... More

Great entertainment for the aviation nerds out there, but plan your day well as the weather, particularly the wind direction, can make or break your viewing enjoyment. The platform and grounds are well maintained but maybe a small kiosk could be handy for selling snacks etc during the flight lulls.

What should I say, bet a great spot for young boys watching the traffic of the airport and planes coming and departing. Moreover something I think everybody should have witnessed. Especially also good to kill some time if a flight is delayed.

Nice location to see plane however has limited facilities. It really depends on the wind directly too. On a good day you can see planes landing and arriving. When the wind blows the other direction you have very limited view. No vending machine or toilet. Has limited shade. No night viewing either. This is a nice place to relax and... More

Been here ac couple of times when I'm picking up guests from the airport and early. The platform is awesome for photographing planes landing and taking off. It can get a bit crowded sometimes but nonetheless great for kids to see aircraft moving around etc. Area itself is well landscaped and well provisioned for parking etc. I'd recommend a visit...
