The site

10 point
Access to takeoff is along the old road below the lookout. Assistance on launch is recommended and a positive takeoff is required. The site looks small, but provided you stay within the lift band it is possible to get high over the lookout. Paragliders may choose to take off on a shelf below the path if the wind is on the strong side.

Flying

10 point
The Point Lonsdale Run is approximately 10km one way and you will rarely get over 100'. Only one very long gap, about 1km east of Collendina, three or four smaller gaps on the way. Excellent view of "The Rip" at the Point Lonsdale end. Pilots flying this trip should be intermediate minimum, able to self launch and should fly in pairs since there are not many people on this area of beach.

Landing

10 point
Landings are on the beach. Do not walk up the face of any dunes. Use the concrete ramp next to the Life Saving Club for access to cars, or the steps back up to launch. This site has been lost before, we do not want to lose it again.
  • Easy landing
  • Landing is possible anywhere
  • Landing area is located near to the site
  • Can fly back to the site
