Flying Fox is regarded by many as the hidden gem of SE QLD flying sites. The site is nestled on the northern boundary of the Lamington National Park and has a reputation for “turning it on” for those lucky enough to be there on the right day. Spectacular “glass-off” flights, seabreeze convergences and great mid winter thermic flying when no other site is working.
