The pilot reported that he had flown to the destination area but was experiencing difficulty in locating the strip. He located an area that he thought might be the strip and carried out an inspection from a low height with full flap selected. About half way along the paddock the pilot decided that the area was not the strip he was looking for and applied power to climb and retracted the flaps. The aircraft stalled and struck the ground in a nose down attitude.
