    There is also a whole bunch of really, really, really good regional NE New South Wales and SE Queensland sceneries - Ballina, Coffs Harbour, Grafton, Lismore, Port Macquarie, Kingaroy (amongst others) made by a guy called John Ross. Search for him and you'll find them. They are truly very good. They all feature in the scenery a lady in a tennis dress who I assume is is his significant other. His Australian eucalypt trees are amongst the best scenery trees you are going to see anywhere.

    There is also a superb Lord Howe Island, which both in Sim and in real life is at the absolute fuel range limit of the Qantas dash-8 that flies there. In both real life and the Sim, you have to land with more than 50% fuel because there is no possible alternative airport - if you cant land there, you have to go back from whence you came.

    It also has modelled in it the wreck of the Air Force Catalina that crashed there. The scenery is in four parts.

    Hello Steve,
    a big thanks from my heart for leading me to the wonderfull John Ross sceneries. I must have missed them completely due to the outstanding VOZ-work I use.

    Would you mind to give me a wink, where to download that Lord Howe Island scenery you where talking about?

    Thank you so far
    Dedl

    P.S. @tgibson_new: your comment was a "Golden Goal"!

    Can't think of anyone that would want to fly to Adelaide.

    Is that and all those others you've listed different to VOZ which I have? I always thought they were used in VOZ anyway? But yeah, I have different versions of them. I haven't really found anything too much better though.

    Apart from a few freeware options, and the PER payware which I heard is very good, Australia / NZ is sadly lacking in the payware department. Perhaps a major developer might want to reconsider focusing on P3D and MSFS and get started on some FS9 airports.

    Might want to check out Robin Corn's ex-payware (now freeware) RealNZ/Godzone sceneries available both here and Avsim. There are 13 in total, all very high quality photoreal airports and scenic locations.

    OK. The John Ross ones. Lord Howe Island. Cairns by Daryl Fisher. Adelaide and South Oz (and yes, I agree that the best thing to come out of Adelaide is the flight back home). The Sydney Add ons. Brisbane 2009..... are DEFINITELY NOT part of VOZ. The readmes for Sydney and Brisbane talk about individual authors.

    The John Ross ones are truly very, very, good. As is Darrell's LHI. Considering that they are only fairly small regional airports.

    The Lord Howe Island one is here. It's the one by Darren Jackson.

    Note that the crashed Catalina shown in it comes up as an "almost intact" aircraft. In reality, it's only a few pieces of broken and twisted aluminium scattered down a hillside; and apparently, that is all it's ever been, as the big pieces were all "harvested" by the Air Force shortly after the crash. My wife was totally underwhelmed when we trudged down to see it.
