Event info

This will be the first Hang Gliding competition of the Australian calendar and will be an 7-day, FAI Category 2 ( application pending ), HGFA AAA Sanctioned competition. It will be an important competition for those who are wanting to qualify for points towards the Aussie ladder / Team Selection and WPRS points. It will also be an opportunity for aspiring competition pilots to fly with Australia and New Zealand’s best pilots. Overseas pilots are most welcome and will be rewarded with the opportunity of flying one of Australia’s challenging and premier hang gliding sites.

The focus of the competition this year will again be to encourage Novice pilots to embrace the values of competition flying by introducing them to the principles and strategies needed to compete, by offering achievable tasks, and to be supported by other, more experienced competition pilots to the skills of flying one of the most challenging and rewarding places to fly in Australia.

Headquarters this year will be at the Canungra Hotel . Entry fee: $295 (plus $30 site fee for non-club members).

Accommodation and Activities

There is a variety of accommodation types available in and around Canungra. However these are not great in number and Spring is a popular time to visit the region. To be sure of getting the type of accommodation you want, book early.

How to get here

Canungra is a small country town nestled in a quiet valley behind the Gold Coast and surrounded by tree-covered ridges separating wide flat valleys. The location provides the environment for varied and challenging flying as well as plenty of alternative activities should the weather fail to co-operate. The town has most of the essential facilities necessary for survival of today's pilots. There is a pub, post-office, supermarket, a few cafe's, a chemist and one ATM. The launches are 15-20 minutes drive from the town centre.
Canungra is situated about 40 minutes drive from the Gold Coast just over an hour from Brisbane in the SE corner of Queensland. There are scheduled international domestic flights into Brisbane and Coolangatta airports. If driving from the south on the coast road, stay on the Pacific Highway until you reach Nerang and then follow the signs to Beaudesert/Canungra. If coming on one of the inland routes, stay on Cunningham's Highway until you cross the Great Dividing Range and then follow the signs for Boonah, Beaudesert and finally Canungra.
