Half of flying in wind is your attitude...

Australia is not the only place that has wind.
I used to fly at a site where we LIKED windy days. Slope soaring depends on wind to "power" the aircraft.

Generally wind will be less near dawn or dusk. Use those windows for flying planes that can't handle much wind.
To successfully fly in higher winds you really should have a higher performance airplane.

If the wind is higher speed than the minimum flying speed of your plane you will have issues. Its still possible but requires more experience.
