There are many people among us with an interest in aviation, for me personally it is more of an interest in the destination that planes can take us too. But the wonder of a child watching aircraft takeoff and land is a delight all of it’s own.
Here in Perth there is a Public Viewing Area where you can watch all the plane happenings, and believe me there are a few. It is not within one of the terminal, where you are cut off from most of the experience but situated out in the open along side the runway on the new road that links the domestic terminal and the international terminal.
To give you an idea I snapped a few photos the other day.
Thee is a boardwalk/ramp that has been designed to ensure people with walking aids can gain easy access.

information for the inquisitive
and a pretty constant stream of take-offs and landings. Located on Dunreath Drive http://goo.gl/maps/1H7t
It is a great spot for a captive audience.
