World first pink helipad welcomes tourists to Australia’s outback

Gilberton Outback Retreat 450km from Townsville by road, in hardened cattle country, has added the unique landing pad after owner Lyn French gain her helicopter license.

“Over the years we’ve had plenty of guests fly out. It’s been a lifelong dream to get a helicopter license and seeing our guests fly in pushed me to do it. We already had a grass helipad but I wanted something different. I told Rob it has to be special, unique , a one of a kind and the idea of a pink heart popped into my mind. He just bowed his head and said oh no, “trust you”.

After a few weeks of planning and repeat visits to the paint shop which took 6 hrs return trip each time, the pad is now operational.
