Great to visit the memorial after visiting the RFDS centre. Having the knowledge of his dream and achievements made it more sentimental.

The grave itself is not why you should visit but rather to read what this remarkable man did. We are really indebted to Flynn and others like him for opening us this land

We visited this site as part of a day tour. You walk up a low hill to get to it. This photo pretty much captures everything there is to see there. Without a guide, it would not be very interesting.

A quick stop is all that is needed, quiet a background with the ranges, a short note of flynns burial on the plague. found it to be a good picnic spot if needed
