TRIP TO CENTRAL QUEENSLAND
Treks & Activities Event
RGSQ recommends that all attendees at this event be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or exempt.
CALL FOR EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST
Online expressions of interest are called for members who wish to participate in a ‘tagalong’ road trip to Central Queensland in September. The trip would visit a number of points of interest with a focus on their geographical significance.
NB: This trip will be held in September, depending on the availability of commercial tour operators in Gladstone. If possible the trip will be scheduled for the first half of the month, to avoid clash with the school holidays. The dates for this trip have NOT been finalised (and could be at any time in September). Dummy dates were included for website purposes.
The trip would start formally in Monto and visit Mt Morgan, Rockhampton, Gladstone and places in between over a period of seven days, finishing in Gladstone on Day 7. Participants could choose their own route and timing for their journeys from Brisbane to Monto and return from Gladstone to Brisbane. The distance covered from Monto via Rockhampton to Gladstone would be about 600 km while Brisbane-Monto and Gladstone-Brisbane would together add another 1000 km.
Accommodation and meals would be at participants’ choice and expense. Overnight stops would be at Monto, Mt Morgan, Rockhampton and Gladstone; for each stop, there is a selection of caravan parks (with cabins) and hotels/motels.
In Gladstone, there may be one or two commercial tours with local commentators to provide information about this highly industrialised area.
The number of participants would be limited to 20. RGSQ would charge about $150 to cover expenses of materials plus commercial tour fees. An advance deposit may be asked for closer to the date.
Online registration for this trip will be available on the RGSQ website in the near future.
In the meantime, could you please indicate your interest by registering on the website or contacting the office on 3368 2066 by 18 March in order to guage the level of interest.
