@220
I am not sure they answered or understood your questions.
They have just said you don't need a licence.
Item 2 "Meet relevant food standards"  means what exactly in relation to what you are doing?
I don't think they have been very clear or helpful to you.

I agree the first response is not helpful, Mark... I also reckon Jim's tip is spoton.
This, ".   notify the NSW Food Authority of their business details and activities"
is the cornerstone of what any Foodie would lever their notice on as it cuts out
 the "I didn't know" excuse.
Worth chasing up I reckon... and now @220 has a foot in, a "name" to talk to,
that desk jockey will boot a response up the chain as they have given their best
response.

SkyPilots?
I own hundreds of hours in the RH seat Mark, and in PNG where 8,000' to go
places is the daily grind... but never quite got to get a licence and so yep, I can
have some insight into "the buzz" but not at all as it would be with the feet on
the pedals.. heh heh ;-)
And you triggered another memory.. "dope", now there is likely why the play
with balsa was removed, yeah? If kids would take to sniffing aerosols what
the freckle would a pot of dope bring on!! ;-))))

Mate of mine who I used to play golf with down NSW grew up in PNG his dad was a pilot up there surname Bell. Lots of dodging rocks in the sky with low viz and short take off, landing de rigueur.

Wholly 0fftopic (apologies) I can say there was a sparky in POM (Port Moresby) by that name (Bell)
 who run an appliance store - like a mini Waltons for our USA brethren - I cannot recall him at the
 Aero Club in POM or Lae but that means nothing as I am a right bugger with names.

We all got "War Stories" but as we (at home) were only last night at dinner
reliving some PNG experiences it is a bit weird (DejaVu) the topic comes up now.
So... I can tellya there are even today I reckon many a hairy ride into and out of PNG 'airports'.
Two are at the top of the list, equal ranked.
I cannot remember the name of the village with the ridge landing strip but the other "Tapini"
is luckily available on the Net. So that alone tells you the degree of difficulty, yeah?

This fella is in a far more modern plane than we used (South Pacific Lager - Tiger (Lion?) Brewries)
-  and is taking a different approach, we were lower and flew up the valley, not over it as he does.
You had to fly up the valley in ascent, turn, and "flop" onto the strip. The video doesn't show it so
well, or they have lengthened the strip since, but the plane ran uphill to stop with a team of locals
waiting with wheel chocks and ropes.
Also his takeoff is missing the grab for airspace (pressure) we endured which involved falling off
the end of the strip, into a Right wingover and diving into the valley to get airspeed and flight
conditions, Most interesting moments !
Still right now my spine tingles as I fly the RH seat watching that video.

And know... every day, weather permitting ( @POM), a 206 Cessna flew in there with mail, solo
pilot mostly. I got to be at a few Wakes in my time at the POM Aero Club.
End...sorry folks.

Bill

(Updated)
This fella was obviously there after my residence as he talks about the eruption in Rabaul which
chased us back to Aussie, but his accounts are very descriptive and accurate;

@eltalia
No room for a go around at Tapini if you mess it up! As the other Bill said go to port on takeoff and you have a dead end. I can imagine the rush of the wingover to stbd with that stream at the bottom of the valley. Awesome stuff!
As a kid my first real flying experience was with my cousin who delivered mail and newspapers to remote farms in a Cessna. I used to hang out for the days when I could go with him. Unfortunately he flew into a sky rock in bad weather (isn't it always the way, you can see the things in good weather!) and I imagine he was on VFR at the time. Was back home for my mothers funeral last year and was flicking through some old photo albums and found a picture of him and I in front of the Cessna, brought back lots o memories. Was able to look up the accident report online, aint the internet great?

It was a 180 https://aviation-safety.net/wikibase/wiki.php?id=63263

Heh.. thought 'we' were "safe" in DUB..?.. buuut point taken.

Any excuse I make would be baaed on my last experience in
"doing the right thing" in taking such musings to the Coffee House.
That choice copped me a 30day+ ban, if you recall ;)

I'll stick to rigid topic in future and do apologise for leading newbie
<Bamboo> astray.
Thanks Jim.

Bill,
I was just pointing out how far this thread had gone. Sounds like you should start a new topic about flying.
