Nice location to see plane however has limited facilities. It really depends on the wind directly too. On a good day you can see planes landing and arriving. When the wind blows the other direction you have very limited view. No vending machine or toilet. Has limited shade. No night viewing either. This is a nice place to relax and... More

Been here ac couple of times when I'm picking up guests from the airport and early. The platform is awesome for photographing planes landing and taking off. It can get a bit crowded sometimes but nonetheless great for kids to see aircraft moving around etc. Area itself is well landscaped and well provisioned for parking etc. I'd recommend a visit...

This was the first plane viewing area I had visited and it was an exciting spot. I enjoy plane spotting and this was a nice open area, though the planes that land on the diagonal runway are hard to view from the viewing platform but with binoculars it would be better. When we went there were roadworks in the area... More

It is a good area for people to see planes and the kids love it. There is a shelter which gave shade. If you are really interested in seeing the planes it is too remote from the terminals.

Another great trip out with the kids. if you can time it for when you are expecting visitors to fly in even better. great to while away an hour or so even if you're not a nerdy plane spotter. The airport has done a great job with this.

The Perth Airport viewing platform is great for viewing planes taxiing and landing from the south. The closest taxiway is only around 90m away from the viewing deck, making it feel like you are right next to the plane! When planes are landing from the north, they turn off at a taxiway, around 500m away, making it difficult to properly... More
