Hi Ian, Yes 601XL would be fine to land and take off. Around 400m of clear airstrip and slightly uphill when coming from the south end where this picture was taken. I took off towards south down hill and around 8kts downwind. 

Great place, good coffee and food and good walk to west coast. 

Cheers  Shafid
