kunanyi/Mount Wellington is 3500' top to bottom – the biggest in Australia. A great sled ride, or XC start point. It is a really appealing site but must be considered with respect. Really good ground handling skills are required to take-off from this site. The landing is not visible from T/O.

An agreement with the land manager is in place for this launch. It is required to be a THPA member to fly this site. It is an extremely challenging launch - pilot must speak with SSO before your first time flying here. Please visit the thpa.org.au website for full information.
