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 street shown in the maps I have.

The outlet of the bay is called Hells Gates from the convict times.

But our tour returns to Strahan, so no need to fight the currents...

I liked these shots Gerold!

This historical tour is quite a challenge, as the water runway is deep below and slightly curved... :D

Thanks for your comment, Graeme. Sometimes I know that stuff before flying, sometimes I learn it while posting here. So both activities are a pleasure!
