Comments for Tangalooma - Cowan Cowan
Resort advised that strip is closed to casual resort visitors, and permission will only be given to suitably experienced pilots who have an accommodation booking.
Sand based strip with light grass covering. Keep the nose up when landing as sand can be soft in spots. All circuits are to be carried out over the water. Parking is on Western side of runway near passenger terminal (tin shed!). Frequent helicopter flights from Tangalooma Resort so be watchful flying around resort area. Air traffic normally goes in anti-clockwise direction around Moreton Island. Multicom frequency 126.7. Spoke to resort helicopter pilot who requested all pilots to please use this frequency & broadcast intentions. Resort is fantastic. Taxi ride from airstrip to resort is $50 each way. Bit pricey but convenient for 5.5 km trip. Permission required from resort to land on airstrip. Landing fees: - overnight resort guests: free - all others if landing is notified & pre-paid: $20 - if prior notice not given: $100
