The student pilot was conducting a solo navigation exercise. On arrival in the Goulburn circuit area he elected to land on runway 04, having observed that the wind was northerly at about 10-15 kts. Shortly after turning onto base leg the pilot realised that the wind was gusting. During the landing flare the aircraft was struck by a strong wind gust which caused it to be displaced from the runway alignment. While the pilot was attempting to re-align the aircraft with the runway a second wind gust caused the left wing to drop and strike the runway grass verge. The pilot recovered control of the aircraft and completed the landing without further difficulty.
