Trip Manager: Neville McManimm – Map Group and RGSQ member,
Trip Overview: The Base Camp will be a Camping Ground 10 minutes from Canungra township. As things will start about 9am on the Tuesday 9th May, consider if you wish to travel early on the Tuesday morning from Brisbane (2 hours travel) or arrive in Canungra on the Monday 8th May during the afternoon after a pleasant country drive and time for drinks and nibbles (BYO) on the creek bank before dinner.
The camping ground has good facilities, camp kitchen with large undercover area, hot showers, all on the well-kept banks of Canungra Creek in the Sarabah Valley. Camping fees $15 pp per night, On-site tents have two bedframes with mattress (bring your own sleeping gear) $25 pp per night.
For those who wish other accommodation, try the following - Canungra Hotel and B&B’s in Canungra are very close to the base camping ground. In Sarabah Valley (5 minute drive from the base camping ground) are the Greenlee Cottages, phone 07-55434021 or check their website. There is no operating motel in Canungra.
There is no need to book the camping ground ahead of time. Neville will do that as you nominate for the outing. B&B’s should be booked as early as possible, that’s your responsibility. Neville will be staying at the camping ground from the Monday afternoon.
Car-pooling will be the order of each day. If we have a few 4wd’s this will add some interest to the outings!
The outing will finish a little after lunch on the Thursday.
