I flew into the strip after getting permission from the owner via phone (number in AOPA guide on ozrunways). It had been raining heavy in the week leading up, but the strip was still usable, but you need to stay off the grass as it is quite soft. Also the first 100m of 09 was a bit boggy so I landed long. I was in a c172. Yes it is narrow, and 27 has an up hill slope from the threshold, but not a problem if you have landed on such strips before. Be careful of 09 departures at high density altitude/MTOW due to rising ground after departure. Landing fee payable in the shed, there is a money slot. All up a good strip, lovely location.
