GFP Gawler 10

The Australian SGP will be held at Gawler 5 -11 January 2025. There will be both 18 and 15m classes opening up the competition to many more pilots and gliders.
Adelaide Soaring Club at Gawler is at the southern end of the Barossa wine region and has ample accommodation in the town of Gawler and local area. A large caravan park in Gawler has air-conditioned units available to hire, and accommodation and onsite camping are also available at the Gawler airfield.

Tasking will be predominantly over flat farming country with hills in the northern task area. The task area covers the Barossa Valley and extends north from there, as well as east over the Murray River to Waikerie.

The contest period is in the peak thermal soaring season of the year. Adelaide Soaring Club will be holding a regatta during the same period and it will be a lively and interesting time to be flying at one of Australia's great gliding sites.
