UP. The Scout

Australian CamperTrailers Group has volunteered to mow & whippersnip around the
buildings within the grounds. This not compulsory, however if you would like to
participate, please bring your own brushcutters, mowers etc including boots
safety gear. We anticipate spending a couple of hours on Saturday
morning before it gets too hot & then sit back and enjoy the fruits of our labour
ie improved access to the river.
THINGS TO DO. You can drive up the mountain to
O'Reilly's or Binna Burra, drop into the historic Canungra pub for a meal, visit
local wineries, swim in the adjacent creek, or just relax and enjoy the company.
ACTIVITIES. An afternoon tea will be held on Friday
afternoon. Please bring your drinks & nibbles to the center
Come sit &
relax with a bunch of like minded people. Check the modifications others have done to
their camper trailers to make camping life all that more enjoyable. You might
meet as complete strangers on the Friday evening, but will part old friends such
is the camaraderie.
You do not need a camper trailer to attend. Members without a camper are more
than welcome to come along & get a first hand unbiased opinion of a particular
camper trailer from their owners. Come along & meet the faces behind the typing.
You are also very welcome to drop in for the day.
Please keep in mind that the group owners will not accept any responsibility
for members & non-members actions during the weekend get together. If you decide to attend, it is solely at your own responsibility, including any
side trips or outings during the weekend meet.
