Jandakot, WA

Half an hour’s drive south of Perth on the Kwinana Freeway is the suburb of Jandakot.

The suburb’s central feature is Jandakot Airport, one of the busiest airfields and largest aviation training bases in Australia. The main operation of the airport is aviation work rather than transport, with over 300 aircraft based there. Watch the heavy flow of aircraft landing and departing from the Jandakot Flight Centre viewing platform.

The Royal Flying Doctor Service of Australia operates out of the airport. They play a very important role in the rural health system by transporting emergency cases to suburban hospitals. This role is illustrated in their museum and tours can be arranged.

Another attraction is the excellent golf course in the heart of Jandakot. The golf complex offers a fully equipped driving range, great for working on that handicap. A meal can be enjoyed at the course’s bistro and bar.

Catch all the racing thrills and spills at the local speedway. A great spectacle as the motorbikes, cars and formula 500s tear up the track.

Glasshouse Mountains

The Glasshouse Mountains in the hinterland of Queensland’s Sunshine Coast are actually the cores of 20 million year old volcanoes. The sides of the volcanoes have eroded away leaving only the hardened rock spiremountain cores we see today. Learn more about this awe-inspiring landscape.
