Daily Travel Photo – Queensland, Australia

Airplane on Beach. Fraser Island, Australia

Airplane on Beach. Fraser Island, Australia

When I visited Fraser Island in Queensland, I took a short plane trip from some guys who sold flights from the beach. They said that Fraser Island was one of the few places on Earth where planes landed on a beach. I have no idea if that is true, or even how to verify it if it was, but it makes for an interesting story.

    Barra, Scotland is another. They claim to be the only tidal airport. You can only land when the tide is low, not enough runway when it's high.

  5. Beautiful photo! Love that endless beach. It makes me want to visit Australia.
