The Caravan is registered to AviAir in South Australia but contracted to the NSW Parks and Wildlife Service as "Park Air 7".

It flew up from the Sunshine Coast to Gladstone Airport before then finishing the day at the Whitsunday Airport at Shute Harbour.  

VH-TQV "Park Air 7" had flown up from Bankstown the previous day.

UPDATE!  Over the course of the week, VH-TQV "Park Air 7" looked to continue out West to Mount Isa before heading back towards the coast and landing again at Gladstone Airport on Thursday 5 November.  It remained in the area and was noted at Charleville Airport on Sunday 8 November before then returning to New South Wales.

Meanwhile, also on Tuesday 3 November, noted making its weekly visit to the Whitsunday Airport at Shute Harbour was often visiting American-registered Eclipse EA500 bizjet N257AK which flew up from Archerfield.

UPDATE!  N257AK returned to Archerfield on Thursday 5 November.

And over on Hamilton Island Airport, Nicknak Airways (Sapphire Beach, New South Wales) Hawker Beechcraft G58 VH-FKI looked to arrive from Adelaide and Charleville Airports.

UPDATE!  VH-FKI departed Hamilton Island Airport for Scone and Sydney Airports on Saturday 7 November.

Finally, also on Tuesday 3 November, a couple of familiar Beech B200 King Airs called into CQ Airports once again with Machjet (Machjet International) Beech B200 King Air VH-PUY calling into Rockhampton Airport from the Sunshine Coast.  It later departed to Julia Creek and Cloncurry.

And Great Western Aviation Beech B200 VH-XGV made its weekly visit to my local Clermont Aerodrome, arriving from and later departing back to Brisbane.
