Sharp Airlines flies from friendly Essendon Airport Main Terminal Melbourne, with free car parking and no security hassles, on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and also daily from Launceston. The 50 minute flight in a Metroliner from Essendon Airport takes you past Wilson’s Promontory and Deal Island on fine days with you connecting with your luggage a maximum of five minutes after arriving at Whitemark Airport on the island. The town is a five minute drive away from the airport where there is a supermarket and bakery with a pub that has great counter meals. Palana Beach House is a 35 minute drive north, with vistas of the coastline and ocean evident as you meander along.
Palana Beach House has two rooms with queen sized beds in each, fitted with top quality mattresses, down doonas, woollen underlays, 1200 thread count linen and doona covers.
What’s so special about the bedrooms is they are standalone from the main house, though connected via a raised deck. The advantage of this layout is that each room has an uninterrupted view of the ocean, coastline and islands. Each is quiet with their own deck, so there are no distractions and no other sounds but the crashing of waves on the beach.
