Official Spotting Locations

Medowie Road Car Park

This is the only offical spotting location at Williamtown. There is plenty of parking to accomodate 100+ cars and a couple of chairs to sit on which face towards 30. This spot is great for visual landings on 30 or take offs from 12 most of the time the wind blows to the east so there are alot of visuals. The sand dunes out to the east makes for a great back drop when spotting at this location and at sunset the runway lights make for a fantastic picture.

Other Spotting Locations

Fighter World has a viewing deck with live ATC feeds but there is an entry fee of $5. Fighter world is on Medowie Road and overlooks the 30 threshold.

Locations to Avoid

Spotting from the terminal is great because it over looks the apron but you may be moved on by security.
