Coastal N, NE, NW
100' / 30m PG2/HG Supervised
NW Tasmania, outside Devonport. The site is located on private land. For your first flights you must contact THPA local pilots for site protocols and introduction to owners. Do not drive in if the paddocks are wet and muddy. Contact and permission from the owners must be made before entering.

Landowners

The owner's mum lives in the cottage to the left as you go through the gate (the owner is Bruce). They are happy for us to park at the top of the hill and fly there, but we must obey the country code and leave all gates as we found them. If the lady is out in her garden, please take the time to pass the time of day, if she is in the kitchen looking out, a wave will suffice.
