Facilities Available

The flying field is located about 7 kms south of the Namadgi visiter center just out side of Tharwa. The field is within a natural valley  that allows the model aircraft to fly under a CASA instrument of approval to a height of 1800 above ground Level (AGL).  
The field has been  cleared of any obstructions and is  predominantly extremely  flat.
The setting is within the Namadji national park and provided a wonderful experience for our members and guests.
Camping is available at the field and is an enjoyable experience with the facilities .
