This will be a relaxed weekend. A couple of scenic drives are being planned and possibly a pub lunch. Don’t forget your Bunny Ears or Easter Bonnet for Happy Hour on Sunday.

At this point, we will be leaving early on Friday 1st, however if we can get away on Thursday we will, but I won’t know until closer to time. Feel free to make your own way to “Kookaburra” and go earlier if you want. If you would like to travel in a convoy, let me know and I can advise who will be travelling on which days. If you arrive before I do, Duncan Macdonald will be setting an area aside for the Queensland Jeepers Club, so you will have to check with him before you set up as to which area has been set aside for us. It will be near the camp kitchen/bbq hut where we have camped previously.

If you would like to join us for a fun Easter Weekend, please let me know that you will be attending by posting on the website below or contact me directly and also advise on which day you will be travelling and if you want to travel in a convoy.

Contact me should you have any queries. Carolyn Farnell farnellgc@bigpond.com 0428143146
