Dugong, Groote Eylandt

Did an overnight on Groote Eylandt, and they put me up at the Dugong. Was definately one of the few perks general aviation has to offer. Generally accomodation for us bug smasher pilots is limited to a donga, with rattling aircon, bugs and no clean linen! So definately a nice change.

Anyway, was flying 3 doctors running a cardio clinic at some of the local communities and clinics. Had a nice dinner with them last night and now im waiting in the room to head back to Darwin. So i thought i would post a few photos of the surrounds. Enjoy.

There you have it, the Dugong!


  1. Wow, I had to look this one up. Pretty nice up there on the Gulf of Carpentaria. Hopefully I can visit one of these days!
