21 Pages of kite flying tips for the whole family. Directed at beginners but also a great resourse for intermediate flyers. Great for kids wanting to learn about modern kites as well as single line kites.

Not specifically aimed at kids, but it is a good general ‘kites resource’ that young teens could easily plunder for homework assignments and so on. Our family ‘kite flying adventures’ pages feature plenty of references to our cute toddler, Aren! The site is rich in high-quality photographs as well.

The website contains information about the association, Australia’s best known kite flier, Lawrence Hargrave, photos and plans for a variety of kites, as well as a comprehensive guide to using kites in the classroom.
