This landout site lies about 2km SSW of Lake Lyndon. In practice it consists of 2 parts, the northern part and the southern part (both in green in the top-view below), separated by deep tracks (in red). The nothern part is the best part to land in but the southern part would be a good alternative if the northern one is occupied. Both green rectangles are about 500m long so plenty of length to land a glider. This particular area is often visited by gun owners sighting in their guns on shooting targets, they tend to be on the eastern side, near the ditch. Their cars could be parked anywhere on the field though! The yellow numbers correspond to the numbered photos below so you know where they were taken.
This should be an easy landout site, not far from Springfield and with easy access to the field, so retrieving should be straightforward.
