Hill 60

Hill 60 is a great flying site when the summer north easterly winds are blowing! Located just 25 minutes south of Stanwell Park, Hill 60 is almost surrounded by water, overlooking beautiful swimming beaches, the five islands of Wollongong and Big island, a bird sactuary just offshore.

This is primarily a hang gliding site due to the nature of the NE seabreezes which get quite strong in the early PM, up to 25 knots. Local knowledge is essential, so contact the locals before flying. Some residents are agitating to prohibit flying there.

Not enough wind today flying from Hill 60 today.
