The location given for this "Airport" is right in the middle of the mountains and in amongst the trees! Tiger country! It is also on a bearing of approx 090 and 39 Nm out from Yea, across step mountains and a lake!
Rather than the "Zero" elevation given it appears to be around 3100 feet!
Airport code (ICAO/IATA) :YEAT /
Field elevation :0ft
I remember it well.
I have been trying to work out when it was that I flew to Wakkacknabeal Airport the first time. It must have been around 1960.
There was nothing at the airport except a field as I recall. Not even a loo.
I flew up from Melbourne to visit relatives.
I would be very interested to learn a little more about the history of this airport and about the type of aircraft I arrived in. It may have been a DC3?
Any old photographs?
Looking forward to hearing from someone. I am an Australian but have lived in Hong Kong since 1976.

Bnalla airport is a beautiful airport to land and fly from it was the most exciting part of my first crosscountry landings thank you Benalla
Yes - I can take you in my Cesna 747-400 anytime.
There is no such thing as Meredith Airport. The proper name should be Lethbridge Airpark, Lethbridge, Victoria. Some how this information has been misleading Google Maps to have their place label wrongly for Lethbridge Airpark. This causes great grief for Mr. Baum, the owner of Lethbridge Airpark and to the members of Geelong Sports Aviators (aero club) who uses Google Maps.
Can someone of this website delete any reference of Meredith Airport please? We will thank you dearly.
