Slope Sites in Melbourne Victoria Australia
This Site Is on Lower Homestead Rd Opposite The Heritage Golf & Country Club MELWAYS Map Ref 279.
It Is A Parks State Park Reserve A Great Place I Found Looking Around on the Internet.
THis Slope about 15 mins from My Home In Croydon.
You Have To Leave Your Car At The Gate And Walk up The Track About 100 tp 200 Metres This Is Not A huge Site And I Am Only New To Slope Soaring
I a Toro 300 which I am learning with it is an Electric model wing but you can remove the moto and change a few setting and up you go for some slope action.
This slope site flies well on NE, E, SW as it a large Mt which has good slopes almost around the whole thing.
I am looking for more sites around where in live in the Eastern side of Melbourne.
Can you please let me know via this Thread or Via e-mail.
I also keen to meet up with local flyers to go and fly slope with as it can get a little boaring flying by yourself.
I will send in some more pictures from the weekend as I will be flying there with a mate.
These pictures don't really do the site any justice at all.
The tree that is in this picture does not come into play as you fly way left of the tree or way right of the tree depending on the wind direction.

Here is the NE Side of MT Lofty
This Side looks over the Heratige Golf Course and would be great to take Arial Pictures of.
The Golf Course is further around to the Right .
