The use of Remotely-Piloted Aircraft (UAV or ‘drones’)

For the safety and preservation of our heritage buildings, neighbouring businesses (Child Care Centre) and guests recreational use of an RPA is NOT permitted at Cascades Female Factory Historic Site.

The commercial use of an RPA may be considered with the provision of evidence of Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) operator’s certificate (ReOC or the former UOC); and the pilot must hold a remote pilot licence (RePL or the former UAV controller). This requirement applies to all categories of RPA including very small RPA (sub- 2kg category).  Anyone with this licences wishing to film will also need to present a current Public Liability insurance certificate and complete the Filming and Photography Application Form at least 10 business days prior to filming.
