26JAN21 / 06:30Z - Australia Day @ YPDN to YAYE via Uluru

Australia Day Event

A Qantas Virtual Group and Virgin Group Virtual Airlines Partnered Event

I’ve been to cities that never close down
From New York to Rio and old London town
But no matter how far or how wide I roam
I still call Australia home

I’m always travelling, I love being free
And so I keep leaving the sun and the sea
But my heart lies waiting over the foam
I still call Australia home

All the sons and daughters spinning 'round the world
Away from their family and friends
But as the world gets older and colder
It’s good to know where your journey ends

But someday we’ll all be together once more
When all of the ships come back to the shore
Then I realise something I’ve always known
I still call Australia home

(But no matter how far or wide I roam)
I still call Australia
I still call Australia
I still call Australia home

Qantas Virtual Group this month is celebrating Australia Day!
So we have decided to partner with Virgin Group Virgin Airlines to celebrate this day where all Australians come together as one, A day where we as Australians come together with backyard cricket and put another shrimp on the barbie (They are called prawns, Not Shrimp), to show our pride of being citizens of this great land.

And to celebrate our first Australians over 50,000 years ago. We will be flying from Darwin, home of The Larrakia people, flying to and around Uluru and landing into Ayers Rock airport.

Hi @JamesQFA380,

If your going to be a bit late, we won’t assign you a gate, as it sounds like you will be spawning in after departure. Your still welcome to join though. If your spawning time changes prior to departure just reply here for a gate, or on the day message me on the discord and ill find you a gate.

See you there
