From the Robertson pie shop take the Jamberoo Mountain Rd and turn left into Lees Road. When you reach the escarpment lookout, proceed for another 100m and take the first turn left to launch.

Approximately 15 km from the coast with a mixture of coastal and inland flying conditions.
Take extra care on launch. When you approach launch make sure that both wings have equal exposure to lift. The bombout paddock is quite a long glide out (about 5.5 to 1), so we generally turn left after launch.
Bottom landing is on the north side of the Illawarra Highway. It's the second paddock south of the dairy shed (milking shed). This is a private property and we have a good relationship with the farmer. Top landing is possible but expect some turbulence being so close to the escarpment.
