  2. Founded in 1804 Hobart watches the mouth of River Derwent. The city center around Battery Point summarizes a lot of attractions, be it the Salamanca Market or (Bill) Lark´s distillery. Just a short flight (or a long walk) to the west is Mt. Wellington, ... ... which offers a great view over city and river. Tasman Bridge, rebuilt after a collapse caused by a colliding ship in 1975, is now high enough for the commercial ship traffic. The Cadbury chocolate plant has been added by Terry @teecee. Not shown in the scenery is MONA, a to
  3. After a bumpy takeoff from Friendly Beaches airstrip we head eastwards to the coastline... ... and turn south, checking the sandy runway once again.

Wilsons Promontory NP (in the background) marks Australias southernmost point, of the mainland that is. Even more southerly is this state, under Down Under. Approaching Launceston, Tasmania. Here we are about to capture the localizer... Got it. Ready for deboarding.
  6. After some days of hiking in the Grampians we leave the nicely OZx-ed airstrip... ... climb over the hills... ... and get a final view of the Balconies lookout. We wave goodbye to the cabins and B&Bs at Halls Gap, ... ... before we follow the road eastwards past Ararat.

Many of the world's most famous surf companies have

Mary River, ... ... and Adelaide River, ... ... before joining Stuart Highway. Here we are, back in Darwin, ... ... and safely landed!
  11. Oenpelli airstrip in Arnhem Land seems to be depicted already in Covid mode: the airport is closed. At least we could head into our trusty Cessna 185 and fly over Ubirr Rock, with its sacred places and famous rock paintings, which are up to 40.000 years old https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ubirr . The major city in Kakadu NP is Jabiru, founded as an Uranium mine and now home of tourist activity. Nourlangie Rock (hard to spot here) is below us. Again a place with famous rock art and occupied for about 20.000 years. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nourlangie_Roc
  12. Maybe one fine day we get the chance again to travel into this beautiful land. To spend some time in Darwin and visit the market at Mindil Beach... ... walk the Esplanade and test the bars... ... before driving down Stuart Highway. My preferred tour operator suggests to turn left on Batchelor Road... ... passing the city (and airstrip) of the same name... ... on the way to Florence Falls. Remark: For this flight the season was set to "dry", not "rain". Then go "around the corner" to Wangi Falls and their pools (you c
  13. The longer these travel bans last, the more I long to return to Australia. At least, I can do this virtually. And I had my last plane parked in a good place to continue: Ready to leave... ... Singers. A little view of Borneo (this flight will surely be repeated with OLC Asia). Traffic, traffic. Flores island. Timor already looks interesting, the mesh helps a lot. Now the next continent shows up, with Melville Island ahead. A first view to Cox peninsula, while already descendin
  14. Following yesterdays arrival... ... my favourite airline with one of my favourite jets is getting ready in Christchurch. A thorough inspection might be wise before this flight. But all looks well maintained... ... so we can take off to the west, ... ... with a last view to the Pacific. Crossing Arthurs Pass NP... ... and Hokitika Gorge, ... ... before we leave island 1: New Zealand. Here we are already at island 2. Ya might guess the city below, even with the payware airport inactive.
  15. I wish we had those wonderful water colors in MSFS (and also a great 737).
  16. One of the most remote natural highlights worldwide, Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, is best to oversee while flying. A sightseeing tour in Embraer EMB190, airborned from Alice Springs and about 180NM NthEast away, overlooking the remarkable formed Ayers Rock and Mount Olga rock bubbles :
  17. Located in the center of Australia v2 the flight over TANBAR / YTNB involves a systematic crash. Reported by Tchoup I passed in this zone at vertical of TANBAR / everyone goes down. Try to get TANBAR back into your P3D and tell me what happens when you launch the flight.
  18. The land adjacent to Botany Bay was settled for many thousands of years by the Tharawal and Eora peoples and their associated clans. On 29 April 1770, Botany Bay was the site of James Cook's first landing of HMS Endeavour on the land mass of Australia.
  19. After travelling through the red center with Wayoutback Safaris last year, they would be my first choice for a tour through the tropical north as well https://www.wayoutback.com.au/destinations/top-end-tours/3-day-4wd-dragonfly-dreaming-top-end-camping-tour/ . And I give myself a virtual teaser before... We´d start from Darwin... ... pick up all the guests from their hotels... ... and drive down Stuart Highway past Emkaytee. Turn right at Coomalie Creek... ... and leave (OZx´s) Batchelor to tour left. Fir

  21. Then comes the day when one has to leave the land of Oz. At least in a stylish plane - just chartered for this special flight.

  22. The second day of our (virtual) Dragonfly Dreaming tour will lead us through the northeast of Kakadu NP. And making the descriptions easier for me, I just take them from a suggested operators´ website. "Awake for breakfast this morning before joining an iconic Yellow Waters Cruise. A must do activity within Kakadu National Park, the award winning Yellow Waters cruise is Aboriginal owned and centres around a spectacular billabong system that is home to some remarkable and diverse wildlife. Spotting crocodiles is only one of the many wildlife viewing opportunities on this unique wat
  23. If you wondered about the final destination of this repositioning after flight 1, ... ... I can give you the answer. VA1459 starts in Melbourne with slightly uninviting weather.
