  1. 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
  2. Another day, another morning flight. From Hobart, Tasmania... ... over the road crossings at Sorell... ... and then heading south, ... ... to the historic site of Port Arthur. Up the coast to the nice OZx airstrip of Lagoon Bay, ... ... Maria Island, another historic convict place, ... ... and the villages of Triabunna... ... and Swansea, ... ... leads us to the Freycinet NP. Coles bay to the left, the Hazards to the right. A littl
  3. 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. Out of Darwin, ... ... for some seconds following Stuart Highway again, ... ... but soon turning north to the Java Sea. Some cloudy hours later we can spot Borneo´s west coast... ... and begin to descend... ... over Pulau Bintan.... ... and Bataam... ... into Singers. I find Singapor
  4. 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
  5. 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. At least the TrueGlass effect works as great... ... as precipitFX does. Climbing over Victoria in the rain... ... and over the clouds. Flying northwest, at Danggali Wilderness area the dry center begins. The green-red borderline near Adelaide, where Stuart Highway begins. You can even see the southern ocea
  6. ... to Tasmania. We go from Launceston airport towards the city... ... and descend over Tamar River, ... ... to look at the entry of Cataract Gorge. Left of the bridge should be the famous Stillwater restaurant, at least the name should be well known to some. https://www.stillwater.com.au/ We enter the gorge and chase South Esk river, ... ... towards Trevallyn Dam. Finally we play a round at the Country Club, though its buildings are invisible. Tomorrow we´ll leave the Apple Isle...
  7. Ready for a little hike in the morning? Let´s go to Dove Lake under the iconic Cradle Mountain... ... and stop at the parking lot to walk around it. The weather may not look too fine, but this shot proofs there should be some more trees in the sim scenery. At lunchtime it is a good idea to get back to Cradle airstrip... ... change the equipment... ... and follow C132 westwards. Passing Lake Mackintosh, ... ... and Zeehan... ... on the way to Ocean Beach. Turn
  8. Today we go for another major tourist route along the east coast of Tasmania. From Friendly Beaches, where we stopped yesterday, ... ... heading north, where the small access road meets the A3. A look over the shoulder shows us Great Swanport and the Freycinet coast to the left. Bicheno. A good place for Fish & Chips, Coffee and Sunrise watching. Work for the driver to cross Elephant Pass. Easier for the pilot... St. Helens, beautifully located at a bay. For me this would be a good location for
  9. Not too much to say about the locations on this flight. Unfortunately with some autumn rain. The telescopes of the University of Tasmania were added by TeeCee. I like this light, ... ... but I do not like this weather. Flying down the River Derwent we see the Cadbury chocolat factory, ... ... some industrial complexes, ... ... and finally the harbour. Again, pimped by Terry to my greatest pleasure. Tasman Bridge in its glory. And I can even find th
  10. Continuing the Tasmanian Tour (I fear the famous road tour https://targa.com.au/targa-tasmania-competition/ will not take place this season) we depart from Strahan... ... along the B24... ... up to the environmental disaster around Queenstown. Then we follow the A10 along the wilderness mountains, ... ... and pass a lake that is named "Laughing Jack Lagoon". Who has given it this name and why? However, at Tarraleah Falls we can simply fly over the meandering road... ... until we come to the lo
  11. Some years ago you could take a scenic flight from Strahan... ... over Sarah Island (a very unconvenient place for convicts in 19th century)... ... and heading inland. Do not take the wrong inlet, it is the left one! IFR flying at its finest... Not easy to find a safe place to land. At least not for me, that is the difference to the professionals... After lunch it would be time to head back over the wilderness. It should be difficult to access these beaches: There is no stre
  12. Time to start this autumns Tasmania tour, and, like most times from Launceston. Did I ever mention this airport look is as outdated as chinese sceneries would be, because the buildings and streets were complete overhauled during the last 10 years? A short view over the fields of Sharman´s Wines... ... and the golf course of the Country Club Casino. The buildings should be northwest of the little lake. Following the NH1 we find ourselves near Carrick. Some VIPs here know this village well, am I right, @teecee
  13. My preferred domestic airline is getting ready in Tullamarine to cross Bass Strait. Having no advanced 737 in my hangar I have to cheat a little bit... Those passengers on the left side can enjoy a little view over Melbourne. "No, do not all move to the left side at once!!" Quite cloudy today... at least those on the right side could get a glimpse of Philipp Island. And soon after we approch Tasmanias north coast... ... with the mouth of Tamar River and the harbour of Bell Bay to be seen here. Turn
  14. The second part of my Victoria tour leads me from Warranambool... ... across an OZx highlight, Cobden, ... ... to Halls Gap. A very prominent entry point to the Grampian mountains. Hard to spot: below us is (should be) the famous rock formation "The Balconies". For a more intense exploration I landed at the nearby OZx airstrip and walked up the hill, but no screenies to prove. Instead, I can only show you the return flight next day out of YGMP... ... crossing the Balconies again, .
  15. After arrival in Australia it was now time to explore the surroundings of Melbourne. Getting ready... ... and airborne. Two airports in a row. It seems that the Essendon elevation issues are solved now? A little Melbourne overview. Don´t get sick! "This is ReinAir, we do not have bags for you." I can´t name all the icons here. Therefore let´s follow the M1 southbound... ... passing Avalon, ... ... Torqay´s Tiger Moth World, ... ... and joining
  16. After some days at Fraser Island´s wilderness ... ... we were to return back to the mainland. In the sim this means I already placed a plane at Hervey Bay. This was the first flight I made after NVIDIA´s driver update mid November - and the significantly increased sharpness was so astonishing, I had to take some more close ups. Off we go, crossing River Heads Road, ... ... followed by some last looks at Hervey Bay, ... ... before we passed Maryborough... ... and Gympie, with its numero
  17. After all that shaking the day before... ... our plans for the next day at Fraser Island were smoother. Leaving Kingfisher Resort... ... with a tour where the name says what´s the intention. Heading north along the island´s beautiful coast and beaches ... ... to Platypus Bay where real life (and the map) indicate a high probability of encounters. Unfortunately in p3d they are placed somewhere else, much closer to Hervey Bay itself. At first we spotted some curious dolphins...
  18. It has been some days since I posted the previous part of our tour: However, it should not be anything but a financial problem to stay at Kingfisher Resort for a longer time. This is how it looks from the sea. On this morning we had booked a 4WD tour across the island. It looks like a road, but in fact it is more a soft beach inside a forest. It was impossible to make a realistic photo while driving. Took us more than 1 hour for the 19 km ride across Fraser Island. The Pacific awaits. 75
  19. Following the afternoon trip... ... we did not stay in Hervey Bay. Instead, we took a seamless connection... ... checked the parking lot of Woolworth Uranagan, ... ... and followed River Heads Road southwards for a short while. River Heads is the place where you park your car, ... ... and wait... ... before the shuttle bus takes you to the barge terminal. From there you "just" cross the bay to Fraser Island ... ... until you see Kingfisher Bay Resort https://
  20. After our flight to the northern Queensland coast ... ... we took a rental vehicle and inspected Cairns´ surroundings. We left the airport to the north across Barron River... ... and initially followed M1, Captain Cook Highway. But as we use a plane here, we can do little detour up to Barron Gorge. Just a few seconds away (if you don´t take the famous railway): Leila´s airstrip and Kuranda. A touristic spot we skipped... Merging with the highway again. It winds along the Pacific quite nicely...
  21. Let me take you onwards on Stuart Highway just from the point we reached yesterday: The Henbury crossroads. That´s how it looks in the sim, coming from the sand track under the plane and then following the paved one, northbound. Just 54 km from here a good stop is Stuarts Well Roadhouse. Should be here. We all feel instantly welcomed by the menu. You are not taking my order, are you? You don´t either, I am sure. Here we should have found the good one; 5 soups of the day, plea
  22. After visiting the Resort at Kings Canyon for a belated breakfast, we took a local mobility provider to move on. Climbing out, you can see Kings Canyon to the right of this screenie. If you like to see more, look here. In case you need a stop, Kings Creek Station is the first (and last) option for a while. An aerial view of Kings Creek Station. The regular "commercial" area to the left, the airstrip easily to see (as written before: The OZx model is 100 % accurate!), and the campground is just under the right engine of the King Ai
  23. After yesterday´s late arrival at Kings Creek Station... ... it is good to get up VERY early for a walk along Kings Canyon. OK, we will save time and energy and take a more relaxing alternative. We´d be picked up at our campsite just right in front of the airstrip (not shown yet in OZx)... ... follow the track just right of the runway ... ... to reach Kings Creek Station at the main road (well, Luritja road is the only road here, btw). https://www.kingscreekstation.com.au/ Sorry, I have no Robinson in my hangar.
  24. Following the intro ... ... this post is going to summarize our tours in & around Sydney: By ferry, by walking, by a bus tour, by ship, and finally by car. Nevertheless, in this peer group we are all about flying... so let´s just head directly from Kingsford Smith to Bondi... ... then over to South Head, ... ... before we turn back over Port Jackson to Sydney´s first airport: Rose Bay. From the time when long-distance flying was mostly done with seaplanes. Here we cross Taronga Zoo...
  25. The other morning we went on from Kings Canyon airstrip... ... following Larapinta Drive... ... into the West MacDonnell ranges near Areyonga. A very slight detour to Gosse Bluff crater. It has never looked so good in the sim. On to Hermannsburg... ... and when Pine Gap tracking station appears to the right, it is time to contact your destination airport. While turning into final you can see a big settlement to the left. The old airport
