Welcome to Stanwell Park

stanwell park

One of the premier flying sites in Australia. We have a unrivaled history stretching back to some of the first ever experiments in flight done by Lawrence Hargrave in the late 19th Century. Today, as then, we have the privilege of flying a beautiful stretch of the coastline between Sydney and Wollongong.

This is the web-site of the Stanwell Park Hang Gliding and Paragliding Club (SPHGPC). The role of the club is to maintain the flying site for the use and enjoyment of the membership and promote the sport within the community. We cater for pilots of all abilities and try to foster an atmosphere of safety, encouragement and enjoyment. If you're just thinking of trying flying out then take a look at our instructors section.

 If you're a visiting pilot or interested in flying the site (Bald Hill) then remember it's a requirement of the land owner (local council) that you must be a member of the club and familiar with the rules before you can fly the site.

Newsflash

REMEMBER: Markers must be placed at both take off and landing areas before flying. Cones are kept in the store in the new lower toilet block. The key is kept in the safe next to the door. They must be RETURNED afterwards. More...
