Aborted takeoff - another plane on the runway?

At Latrobe Valley Airport, Australia, the other day I was lining up my Piper Cherokee ready for takeoff after an other aircraft had just landed. Latrobe Valley has an interesting landscape in that on one end of the runway sometimes you can't see the other.

After starting my takeoff I quickly realised I hadn't heard the 'clear of all runways' radio call from the landing traffic, so I aborted the takeoff and radioed to check. This video shows you the aborted takeoff roll and what happened next.
