Where We Are
Landscape

The Hunter Valley Gliding Club is located at Warkworth, in the upper Hunter Valley approximately 2.5 hours North of Sydney. We are surrounded by coal mines and dairy farms, with the main wine-growing area only 10 minutes drive away.

The airfield is approximately 1.7 kilometres long and is owned by the club. During the Second World War, the airstrip was a satellite strip to the main base at Bulga, along with two other Hunter Valley satellite strips at Cessnock and Jerrys Plains. These strips were positioned inland to serve as a backup to coastal facilites such as Williamtown. During that era the strip was 2.4 kilometres long so as to accommodate the Liberator and Hudson bombers that flew from it.

This is our airfield from the air.

It is named in memory of David Parker, who was one of the early club presidents and chief flying instructor. David was a driving force behind the purchase of the airfield.
