A VFR route commences out to the south-east at Tailem Bend VOR, from which you take up a track of 261 degrees magnetic to the township of Strathalbyn. To remain OCTA at this stage will require an altitude of not above 4500ft.
From Strathalbyn, a track of 280 degrees magnetic will take you to the inbound approach point of Port Noarlunga on the coast. Stay below 2500ft to avoid the control area airspace en route.
Clearance from Adelaide Approach on 118.2 is required from Port Noarlunga.
