Shep would love it, and be just a little bit chuffed that it's being named after him

Digging through the old threads on this forum, back in 2009 (and probably even before that!) there was fear that Shep's Mound would get developed out of existence. Now it's being developed into longevity.

These 4 words in bold should be cause for celebration for the spotters and community alike.

It's great to see that Sydney Airport is getting a dedicated spotters' facility and I hope to use it when visiting Sydney later this year.

Perth spotters have enjoyed a similar facility since 2011 and those who have used it would agree that it is brilliant for spotting and photography. However, it does lack toilet and refreshment facilities due to the its location and the expense to connect to various services.

But I'm more more than happy with what has been provided.

Goosebumps!

That's how good this is. Well done to SACL and can't wait to see the finished result.
Is there any official news release about this, yet? I've had a look at www.sydneyairport.com.au without finding anything.
That said, I do have chronic difficulties finding my way around that site, so the problem could well be mine.

Ah, did find it on their Facebook. It does pay to read the sign carefully

Yep, as a previous SACL critic/whinger about this in the past, I can can certainly say "Hi 5" and well done to SACL. Additional credit to whoever in SACL is recognising the contribution by naming the facility after the late passionate and committed spotter, Shep.

Will there be any practical way of getting there without a car?

There isn't at the moment - I don't expect that will change.
