Innisfail is a pretty little town. The airport is also a nice airport. ( actual local name if you do a google search is Mundoo airport even though it’s icao name is Innisfail (YIFL) Bitumen main strip with a grass cross strip at sea level. There’s an active aero club with a bar and clubroons. It’s a bit out of town though.Innisfail is to the south of cairns and an hour drive, also consider a couple of days at Shute harbour airfield as there is plenty to see at the Whitsundays.
Yeah. I must admit it’s a lottery in November. I don’t know if we can blame climate change or whatever but it’s all gone pretty out of wack this last 12 months or so.Thanks JW, much appreciate the info. The idea of basing ourselves in Cairns is a good one.
But sounds like be prepared for a lot if sitting around waiting for weather, plan early morning flights and maybe just basing ourselves in Cairns and go from there.
It will depend how much time we have. Early stages of planning so not sure how much time he’ll have yet. If it’s too dicy we’ll probably just fly commercial.
