You can approach Forrest from the dry side or the wet side.
I highly recommend the wet side. You're not going to believe the magic of low flying along the cliffs of the Great Australian Bight.
Not bad for an airstrip in the middle of the desert.
Welcome to Forrest International.
Yes, it's all very flash out here. But the resident managers will look after you and your aircraft beautifully.
Surprising, beautiful - Forrest's historical hangar, where you will be invited to bed down your aircraft during your stay.
When I take Curtis Aviation aircraft away, I try and really look after them. BXO is tucked up safe and sound - a rare treat in the outback.
And here's where you'll sleep. One of the five old houses originally built as homes for the meteorological workers, and now for us when we visit!
You're going to want to wander out to the Indian Pacific railway track. It's just out the front door.
Always plenty of time for a chill on the track in between trains.
There's just something about this place - you'll love it.
Big sky country out here ... we met up with a squadron of AWPA girls all enroute to our 2018 Perth conference.
You can grab one of the bikes and head out to the runway - see if you've forgotten how to do it.
Some get quite into it ...!
Or you can just go peddling out for a scenic cycle. You're not going to hit anything.
I forget what this survey vehicle was doing, but how cool are those add-on rail wheels he can put down!
The Nullarbor Plain offers up some of the most diverse landscape in the country.
Thanks Forrest - we'll be back!
