  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. A few seconds later we spot Cape Tourville lighthouse, ... ... just on top of some spectacular cliffs. Extra view for @Jack Sawyer . Turning back westwards we meet Wineglass Beach and the hills of The Hazards. From the top of Mt. Amos you´d have a magnificient view, too. The village Coles Bay at the left end of Richardsons Beach...

Just a few captures of this 5-hour-drive, the first ones from Binalong Bay, ... ... then St. Helens, ... ... and, down the east coast, Bicheno. The perfect break is made at Friendly Beaches, with some good places to stay, hike and relax nearby. Parked!
  5. Another simulated real-life flight takes us to a neighboring state, out of Melbourne... ... throwing some noise over the city center, ... ... and heading down over the outskirts... ... towards Philip Island. 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. The M8 gets bigger and transforms into the Western Freeway, ... ... leading us over Melton... ... back to Melbourne. Amongst the numerous Orbx airports here we choose Tullamarine again, because we want to catch a connection to our nex
  7. Here we leave Warrnambool airfield, ... ... and throw a look to the city at the Southern Ocean coast. Just west of it there is Tower Hill Lake, the remainder of an inactive volcano. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tower_Hill_(volcano) Turning north we can see the next coastal settlement, Port Fairy, in the distance... ... but we follow the road via Penshurst, where another extinct volcano, Mount Rouse, can be seen. https://www.visitgreaterhamilton.com.au/mount-rouse/ Just a bit further north, at Dunkeld, some mountains come into
  8. The Great Ocean Road I mean. Our plane takes off where we landed recently, Tullamarine. Soon after we cross the Orbx headquarter at Essendon, ... ... before we pick up some tourists at the CBD hotels. The cityscape is P3D at its finest. Then we follow the road along Port Philip, ... ... Avalon... ... and Geelong / Ceres. Can you see the curved runway under the plane? This was the first OZx airstrip I ever attempted to land at, and I will not forget this impression. 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. Hi guys, I have a problem regarding the render distance of my Orbx global. As you can see from the screenshot, the scenery stops rendering and the default one can be seen Is there a way to increase the render distance? Thanks.
  14. 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
  15. 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.
  16. After yesterdays flight ... ... we will now continue on our way back from the southern end of Aotearoa. The Dash is being made ready in Queenstown... ... and off we go. Looks like a steep climb, please keep your seatbelts fastened. Turning westwards over Lake Wakatipu... ... before crossing Shotover River in quite some altitude, already. We see the eastern plains of the Southern Island in brilliant Summer weather. At least the visibility was better when we were flying on base into Christchurch.
  17. Here we go again, taxiing in Milford Sound. Quite impressive, at least in motion. Heading out into the fjord, with Mitre Peak ahead... ... and the settlement behind. Plus Bowen Falls in its glory. One can imagine why the rock ahead is called "The Elephant". Tourists heading north at the coast... ... while we turn inland over Martins Bay. I would welcome a slight name change to "Martyns Bay" @VH-KDK. Climbing is needed over Lake McKerrow... ... following Hollyford River...
  18. ... only visual, by the way. Starting at the Milford Lodge... ... we move to Milford cruise harbour, ready to change to a canoe. The first sight is Bowen Falls. Must be @BradB who dropped the name here. Looks fantastic even from the distance. Just turning around we face Mitre Peak. Plus some wildlife on the way back to the harbour. Wouldn´t it be great to travel again?
  19. In a flight sim we can not do some of the classical Queenstownactivities, like speedboating on Shotover River https://www.queenstownnz.co.nz/listing/shotover-jet/2272/, bungeeing from Kawarau Bridge https://www.queenstownnz.co.nz/things-to-do/adventure-activities/bungy-swing-and-zip/ or hiking on tracks like the Routeburn https://www.queenstownnz.co.nz/stories/post/great-walks-from-queenstown/ . But we can virtually hire a car or take a bus tour, ... ... drive SH6 southbound, ... ... turn west at Oreti River... ... until we reach Te Anau.
  20. For this flight we start on Fox airstrip TO20, at the Tasman Sea coast of NZ´s southern island. We leave Fox River behind... ... and reach Haast Highway (SH6). You´ll meet Julius Haast´s footsteps everywhere here, fer example at Haast River. Sure the village under the left wing is named... Haast. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Julius_von_Haast Now we turn upwards the river and get to... ... Haast Pass. Haast was the first European to lead an expedition across the southernmost and lowest of the passes traversing the Southern Alps.
  21. Hokitika has two touristic sights (as per my knowledge): The glowworm dell https://www.adventurewest.co.nz/Destinations/hokitika/Hokitika-Glow-Worm-Dell , which should be near the airstrip but invisible in such thing as a flight simulator... ... and, if you follow Hokitika river some miles upstream, ... ... the Hokitika Gorge. https://hokitika.org/places/59/Hokitika-Gorge Seems like a suitable place to hike. We complete the day by heading further south to Lake Mapourika... ... and to a small airfield which is
  22. This inofficial tour starts at Franz Josef airfield NZFJ, ... ... whilst you could book some official ones at this helipad. https://www.glacierhelicopters.co.nz/ No matter from where, you should follow Waiho River... ... to Franz Josef Glacier. Sure we are not just passing over it, ... ... we have the right bird to land and explore. Before cooling down too much... ... we cross the peaks around Mt. Cook... ... and visit the neighboring Fox Glacier for another hike. Some 50
  23. This is my first travel report after months of stay-at-home, even virtual. In this case mainly caused by renovation work and the related honeydo stuff. But my P3D is still working, nearly unchanged and free of unwanted updates! After trekking along the Abel Tasman NP it is time to leave Motueka, ... ... travel through the hinterland of Nelson, ... ... and work down into the west coast mountains of NZSI. Driving along Kawatiri highway would be much easier than flying in this conditions. But we come clear pass Mt. Lyell.
  24. When I feel the need to go to the mountains North East New Mexico is just a few hours from where I live in Texas. KCAO Clayton NM to KSKZ Taos NM OpenLC North America Airport Pack Leaving KCAO and yes there really is a swimming pool at the airport.
