Hang Gliders in the Dunes

Posted: January 1, 2016 at 3:00 pm

July 15. 1975 Hang gliding in the Wanda Sandhills. It wasn’t long after the invention of the hang glider that all sorts of flying adventurers were launching themselves off the Wanda dunes. Most times the sand made for a soft landing, but occasionally crashes would happen. At least back then there was plenty of open space around to land.  Tim Vanderlaan Photo.

The Wanda Dunes seemed so massive back then in 1968 they covered kilometres stretching all the way to Kurnell. Weekends were spent sand skiing,walking the dunes or watching the dune buggies. Tim Vanderlaan Collection.
