Contact the Kyneton Aero club, they have a C172 and an experienced instructor.

I can highly recommend Gawne Aviation Shepparton. They have been in the business for a long time with excellent instructors and in house examiners. It's a very friendly flying school with reasonable rates.
Shepparton has a great climate almost year round. As well as that the training area is nearby and you will get into the air quickly rather than idling on the ground wasting time and money. They will mentor and teach you right as many of their former trainees have progressed to various professional pilot jobs including airlines.
Good luck with your aviation aspirations. It can be a challenging road but it is rewarding when you make it.

Advice on Sydney flight schools.

Recently redundant cattle driver looking to get my AFR done and my FIR and MEIR current again to try my luck at the flight schools again. Being from WA originally I'd greatly appreciate any insight anyone has about good or not so good flight schools in the greater Sydney area?
Thanks in advance everyone!!!

I did my AFR down in Wollongong with NSW Air and renewed my instructor rating as well. Did the Instructor check with Curtis Aviation at Camden who were great. Also a lot of stood down airline staff at Alto-cap at Camden doing flying and instructor refreshers.
