This beautiful site is on PRIVATE PROPERTY. There is an honesty box located in a post on the right just after the Dam. It is $10 a day for use of the site, or for a years access you can leave $250 with Phil, or alternatively donate a day's labour assisting Phil on the property. Prior contact needs to be made with Phil Robinson on 0419030016 or Twitter: @SpringHillPhil before flying at Spring Hill.
PLEASE NOTE: No flying on days with a fire index rated Severe, Extreme or Catastrophic. Information on the fire danger rating for the area is available on the RFS website (Fire Area 9 Southern Ranges).
Only 4x4 vehicles have permission to use the site, i.e. not wrx's and skylines etc, so please leave all other vehicle at the carpark in the LZ. It's a 25-30 minute walk to the top, or maybe you can carpool or catch a lift with someone driving up. Club protocol is to offer the driver $5 per lift up the hill to cover fuel and vehicle wear and tear. It is at the vehicle owner’s discretion as to whether they accept payment.
If it is your first time at the site, please find a duty pilot, safety officer or contact the club to have a site briefing prior to flying. The following link is some information you should be familiar with regarding the site: Spring Hill Site Guide and Spring Hill Fire Management Plan
