Rabbit holes everywhere messing up what is a great airport and nice place to visit
bloody fantastic burgers and excellent hospitality and a short walk from the airstrip. Will definitely be back.
Decided to make another trip down from Parafield via the coast and Coorong as a birthday present for a longtime friend. Circled the town and on landing was greeted by George who thought it would be nice to come out and say g'day. Not only that he gave us a tour of the town showing all the new development taking place and dropped us off at the cafe/restaurant by the lake. Hospitality there fabulous as was the food and view over the lake. Gotta have their burgers. Wandered back up to the main street and rang George to thank him for all he had done and he insisted dropping us back at the strip...only a 15 minute walk anyway. This has to be one of the best kept secrets close to Adelaide. GREAT DAY OUT!
Flew in from Parafield on way to check out Coorong and the mighty Murray River. Rang George Bland (number in AOPA airport directory) to check on strip condition. Good he said. Easy to find, close to town, and 2 good strips to land on. He even came out to pick us up and run us into town for a coffee and then dropped us back again. FANTASTIC show of hospitality and my overseas friends were most impressed. I will certainly be going back. Lake is full and facilities (clubhouse) all in process of being done up. Less than an hour from Parafield and only an hour on the long way home via Goolwa and coastal to Outer Harbour.
Thanks from Colin
