CALENDAR OF EVENTS

July 12, 2020 - Camp Creek/Takilberan Creek - Easy S2a
A walk downstream along and beside the creekbed to the junction with Takilberan Creek. This walk is in the vicinity of Mt Perry so it is a decent drive each way. Leave from North State School at 7am. Contact Mary (0414 190 566) to register. Maximum 14 people.

July 12, 2020 - Camp Creek - Med/Hard S3c
A 3 - 4 hour walk up Camp Creek (near Mt Perry) and return. The walk will involve a lot of rock hopping and scrambling. If it is raining or showers the walk will be cancelled as the rocks are extremely slippery in the wet. Depart North State School at 7am. Contact Lucinda (0421 011 181) to register. Maximum 14 people.

July 14, 2020 – Monthly Meeting
As we are still limited to the number of people who can meet indoors (as it can only be 1 person per 4 square metres), this meeting will be only for the committee members and walk leaders. Please let Darryl know if you plan on attending so we can ensure appropriate numbers. Meet at Bundaberg State High School at 7pm.

July 18, 2020 – Planning Meeting
This meeting will be to plan the walk calendar for the rest of 2020. If you cannot make the meeting, we are still happy to receive ideas beforehand, especially if you are interested in leading the walk. Meet at the bush chapel area (next to Cafe 1928) at the Botanic Gardens at 10am. We will have lunch and a catch-up after the meeting. BYO chair, food and ideas!

July 19, 2020 - Wreck Rock to 1770 "Carfari" - Drive/walk
Drive to Wreck Rock (dirt road, 2WD suitable), stop there for smoko/short walk. Those with a 4WD can then continue on the sand road to 1770. Meet at North State School at 7.30am. Contact Richard (0429 888 552) to register.

July 19, 2020 - Kayak - Deepwater Creek
A paddle at Deepwater Creek (same area as the Carfari). Contact Mary (0414 190 566) to register and for time and meeting point details. Maximum 12 people.

July 26, 2020 - Dairy Creek Falls - Hard M4d
This walk starts on private property and we will walk up Dairy Creek (near Mt Perry) to reach some small waterfalls and return the same way to the cars. (These are the smaller waterfalls on Dairy Creek, not the big ones on Hogsback Creek.) Whether there is any water in the creek and falls will depend on rain.
As this is a 1.5 hr drive each way, and a long, off-track walk, it is likely we will return to Bundaberg close to or after dark, so please plan accordingly. Meet at North State School a 7am. Contact Lucinda (0421 011 181) to register. Maximum 12 people.

July 26, 2020 - Mon Repos to Bargara return - Easy S1a
Walk along the graded track from Mon Repos to Bargara and back. Meet at the Riverside Carpark at 8am. Contact Verlie (4152 8855) to register. Maximum of 12 people.

September 21, 2020 – Maryborough Open House Details to come. Open House program is where houses and public buildings are open to the public for the day, so this would be a day trip to Maryborough to look at the beautiful old buildings.

October 3 - 5, 2020 - Gympie Rattler A tentative plan to spend the long weekend in Gympie to camp, do some walks, and go on the Gympie Rattler. Details to come.

2021 - New Zealand Trip
Mary and Michelle are planning a trip to the Abel Tasman National Park (northern coast of the south island) to walk and kaya, most likely in February/March 2021. Plans will probably include The Abel Tasman Coast Track: Travel 60km along the coast of the Abel Tasman National Park to see most of those pristine golden sand beaches. The 3-5 days Great Walk track has a number of huts and campsites as accommodation along the way (as well as a couple of luxury lodges). Also: kayaking in the Tonga Island Marine Reserve. Get more intimate with the Abel Tasman coastline and have some close encounters with the wildlife. You have plenty of options when it comes to kayaking in Abel Tasman, including self-guided multi-day hires, guided day tours, and even a mix of kayaking and hiking in day tours. Please contact Mary or Michelle to discuss if you are interested in joining.

Housekeeping Rules

All persons take part in outings on the understanding that they do so entirely at their own risk. They agree that the responsibility, which they take for their own safety, is the same that they would apply if they were on their own organised outing.

Those intending to participate on outings are asked to contact the nominated walk leader prior to the walk. This particularly applies to newcomers to club outings. Comfortable walking shoes/boots and suitable clothing should be worn on all club outings. A suitable day pack should also be carried (see inside for suggested packs)

Our club is affiliated with Bushwalking Queensland
