Called K'Gari, meaning "Paradise," by the local Butchulla people, this kilometer-long island lies off the coast of Southeast Queensland, and it certainly lives up to its name. Most of the island belongs to Great Sandy National Park, a protected area of diverse habitats and dazzling beauty. Subtropical rainforest, seemingly endless beaches, mangroves, lagoons, towering sand dunes, and crystal-clear freshwater lakes and streams are just some of the natural attractions you can explore here, and the island evokes an intoxicating spirit of adventure in all who visit. Miles of dune-backed beaches rim the coast, creating a sandy highway for self-drive visitors and tour vehicles. Besides off-road driving, top things to do on the island include hiking along the beautiful beaches and rainforest trails, fishing off the eastern beach, swimming, birding, mountain biking, wildlife watching, and camping.

It started as a dream to link outback towns by air and grew into a global icon, flying more than 50 million passengers a year around the world. Over the past century, the legacy of Qantas has grown to become much more than an airline — the flying kangaroo is now a globally recognised brand. Fysh and McGinness were tasked with surveying possible aircraft landing strips across western Queensland and the Northern Territory. As they travelled over rough terrain from Longreach to Darwin in a Ford Model T, at an average speed of 25 kilometres per day, the pair hatched a plan to establish an air service connecting remote communities. But according to Hamish Griffin, a Cloncurry resident and advocate for cheaper regional airfares, it was in the dry riverbed of the Cloncurry River that the idea really gained traction.

Australian Airport Opens New Second Runway
In this second and final chapter of a special two-part Destinations feature focusing on flying the Queensland coast, Darren Friend leaves the Sunshine Coast behind and works his way northward, stretching from the Whitsundays right up to the most northerly point of mainland Australia. Given the distance, we needed several refuelling and pit stops along the way, so our planned ports of call were Hervey Bay and Bundaberg airports. Shute Harbour and Hamilton Island airports are probably two of the most popular destinations for pilots visiting the Whitsundays. Shute Harbour is on the mainland right near the laidback, backpacker-heavy township of Airlie Beach. Both runways require a right-hand circuit due to local hilly terrain and gusty winds that cause severe turbulence at times, and both have a curved final leg approach due to hills that obstruct a straight-in approach.
A Drones in Health Care think tank was held on Tuesday and the talks were reported to have been promising with regards to the future use of drones.
