Hanging around on the Horizon - Strezleki Lookout Newcastle NSW by 


This hang glider appears to be dancing on the horizon just off the launch area at Strezleki Lookout between Newcastle South & Bar Beach. On this particular afternoon the word had got out that the conditions were perfect and pilots were feverishly preparing their hang gliders for flight. Its amazing to sit and watch them strap themselves in and with just a few small steps launch themselves off this sheer cliff and float away on the thermals. The coal ships on the horizon look insignifant against the huge expanse of ocean.

    Counting the coal ships?

  • Steve, most of the waiting empty coal ships are to the south (~ 34 to the right) or hidden ( ? ) over the horizon (Labor Party politicial spin).

  • Wow! Marie … thank you for the feature of this one. These fellows have more nerve than I’ll ever have. Two steps and then walk off a perfectly good cliff. Its a lot of fun watching them though. Thanks again.
