Ararat Airport – Flights, Victoria Australia

Stawell is a popular tourist attraction in The Grampians region, and the airport is one of the ways visitors get to reach the location.

The main function of Ararat Airport is its operation as a gliding club. The views after take-off from the airport are simply breathtaking and this is one of the reasons why the Ararat Airport is a preferred destination for gliders.

The flight packages available at the airport are dependent on the gliding club that one is affiliated to. As such, the cost of the packages will differ from one club to another. Available services and amenities at the airport are largely designed to cater for the needs of the gliding community, both in Ararat and in greater Victoria.

While the airport is home to several gliding clubs in Ararat, gliding is often done for recreational purposes rather than as a public form of transport. Consequently, a number of the gliding planes will usually carry instructors and their students from Ararat Airport to designated locations, as provided by the client before the flight.
