CAIRNS SPOTTING SITES : UPDATED INFO 2014 

Want to find the best spots for aircraft photography around Cairns airport.

Check out the photos below to see the types of photos from each site.

1. Dog exercise area. on the Cairns esplanade between Lily and Smith street.  Best for runway 33 arrivals in the morning. ( REMEMBER THE AEROGUARD) YOU WILL NEED IT. sit under the trees  near the sea.

2. Airport access road #1.  Turn off the highway toward the airport. flat dirt parking area  area on your left.  good for runway 33 arrivals after lunch.  ( now closed off for parking your car) just park around the corner and sit under the palm trees. 

3.  Airport access road #2 . follow the airport road until you get to the bridge over the creek, you can park off to the right side down the small bank.  Good for runway 15 departures all day.  ( REMEMBER THE AEROGUARD) YOU WILL NEED IT.

4. Airport access road #3 Follow the airport road over the bridge until you come to a parking area on you right.  opposite this car park is a small track leading to the fence line.  ( REMEMBER THE AEROGUARD) YOU WILL NEED IT.
You will need a ladder at this location.  KEEP IT 3 METERS FROM THE FENCE AT ALL TIMES.  As  this is an isolated area along the airport fence line, I  ALWAYS ring the federal police to let them know i am there. Call on 40401777. and let them know who you are and why your there....you will still get a visit from Federal police , but you will get a much friendlier visit.  This is about the only spot you will attract police attention. 

5. The Lookout.  Follow the highway north past the turn off to the airport.  Turn off to the left onto Stratford connection road. around 100 meters past the railway line, you will see a track off to the left, park down there, and look up the hill, you can see the look out from the road, walk up the steps and the track ignoring the no entry sign, its public land. around 10 mins will have you at the look out. TAKE WATER as there is none to drink when you are there.   Good for both runway operations, but best after lunch time.
This look out is just as good as the "red Arrow" look out, and much quicker to get to.

6. The Aero club car park. Follow the highway past the main  airport turn off , and you will come to a set of traffic lights,Turn RIGHT  leading into the GA side of the airport . You will come to a T intersection, Turn RIGHT and follow the road , till you come to a second T intersection, along the airport fence.  turn RIGHT and then next left into a car park ,  this is near the North Queensland Aero Club,  Good spot for both runway directions after lunch.  You will need a ladder at this location.  KEEP IT 3 METERS FROM THE FENCE AT ALL TIMES. 

7. The Weather Office.  Follow the highway past the main  airport turn off , and you will come to a set of traffic lights,Turn right  leading into the GA side of the airport . You will come to a T intersection,  Turn LEFT and follow the road north for around 1.5 kilometers along the airport fence line, until you come to the weather office, you can park and sit in your car under the shade of the tree at this location .   You will need a ladder at this location.  KEEP IT 3 METERS FROM THE FENCE AT ALL TIMES. Good for all runway operations from 11.00 am onwards.

8. Machans beach access road, follow the highway north past the airport over the Barron river until you get to a roundabout, turn right off the roundabout on the Machans beach road  and drive around 2 kilometers until you see the airport landing lights on you right hand side, the access to the river has now been closed off and fenced .  you can still find good spots along the road. 

KEEP ANY CARS AND LADDERS AT LEAST 3 METERS FROM ANY AIRPORT FENCE OR GATE, FAILURE TO FOLLOW THIS BASIC RULE, WILL SEE YOU GETTING A LESS THAN FRIENDLY VISIT FROM THE POLICE. I have been taking photos for over 15 years around the Cairns airport , and have found the Federal Police to be very cooperative to spotters as long as you do the right thing,   You can and will be checked out if any where near the airport fence line,  But i have yet to hear of any one who has been stopped from taking pictures.while doing the "right thing " .
