  2016 XMAS weekend Ballina Beach Option - 19th - 20th November
Posted by: sirlezz - 29-06-2016, 04:28 PM - Forum: Club Trips - Replies (10)

Been looking on You Camp for some different ideas for our end of year camping

Option One Wins the debate

Option 1 Ballina Beach Village  https://www.youcamp.com/properties/774

Gorgeous 20 acres property on the beach by the river. Amenities include camp kitchen, 3 amenities blocks with hot showers, 2 pools, childrens playground, dump point, cafe, kiosk, bait, tackle, cabins if you need them. From $20 night

4wheel drive access to the beach - no permit is required. You can drive all the way South to Evans Head, about 30+ Kms tides permitting.

Access us via the Burns Point Ferry if you are coming from Ballina, ($5.50 one way) or come via Wardell if you are coming from South. See full description, travel instructions and photos at our website,


We are pet friendly too! Wilderness paradise.

Option 2 Mt Barney Wilderness Retreat https://www.youcamp.com/properties/174

2.5 hrs drive from Brisbane, 30km south of Boonah. 4WD access only.
Open Friday to Sunday (minimum booking is for two nights). Camping Fees: $25 per person per night. Cabin fees: $160 per night (sleeps up to 10 persons). 130ha at 725m beside Mt Barney NP.

We have about 130ha (300ac) of mountains and forest available to you for camping and bushwalking. We offer a small camping ground with all the basic facilities you would expect in a wilderness retreat plus a bit more.
For those who want to stay close to our main facilities we offer about 2 ha of open space in which to pitch your tent or place your camper van.
For those who want a complete wilderness escape we can also offer even more remote locations - hidden in the forest and ridges of the property and accessible by more experienced four wheel drivers - as the tracks get rougher and steeper.

Option 3 Hosanna Farmstay https://www.youcamp.com/properties/753

Nestled in the beautiful Tweed Valley on the NSW North Coast, 2 hours from Brisbane, 40 minutes from the Gold Coast Airport and 40 minutes from Byron Bay $12 per person per night camping

Hosanna is a 100-acre family and dog friendly farmstay just behind the busy coastal strip of Northern NSW, offering accommodation, activities and functions for individuals, families, groups, and schools.

Come and help feed the farm animals and join in the milking. Have a splash in the dam, jump off the diving board and paddle in a kayak! Build your campfire and finish the day roasting marshmallows. Hosanna is located in the Tweed Valley, near Mt Warning
Great activities, a swimming dam with diving board and kayaks, and the yummiest food ever, make a Hosanna a great school camp venue! Katapult, Amazing Race and Dreamtime

More to come

Hi Everyone. Going to re-visit this trip as we didn't have enough takers last time!

There is now 60km signs along our entry road and we ask that you be mindful of the wildlife, cattle and courteous to our neighbours along Tamrookum Creek road as you enter our property, thank you.

  • Details as advised last time from Wendy at Scenic Rim:
  • Thank you for the enquiryWe do recommend the deposits to hold your spot as we are only permitted 20 vehicles. We do receive deposits right up to the day before. If someone pays a deposit and is unable to attend on the day we do carry this across to another date. Deposit of $40 per vehicle can be paid into the account below. Balance of payment can be paid on line or cash when checking in at the office.Campsite 1 is a good site for first timers who are towing and campsite 7 is also a popular site but you do have to go up three hills half way up the property. I have attached a copy of the required information and paperwork we are to supply to all visitors to the park it does answer most questions. Please pass this on to the others in your group. For those camping we do not charge for children under 5 years, hot showers or firewood which you can collect yourself from the property.If travelling through Beaudesert please stay on the Mt Lindsay Highway heading towards Rathdowney. Tamrookum Creek Road is a right hand turn off the highway. You have 2 kilometres of tarmac then 4 K’s of dirt our property is on the right. Some GPS’s are taking people off the highway to no through road tracks..
  • Please use the date of the booking as a reference number.

Basket Swamp trip. (Boonoo Boonoo in NSW)
Trip leader: Victor

This will be a camping only trip as it is too far for a day trip.

Meeting: 7.30am Hungry Jacks at Beaudesert for an 8.00am leave time.

Apparently there is only a small camping area, so no room for camper trailers etc.

I have just formulated a new topic rule that I would like you to all follow when creating a new trip entry into the Forum..

To help sort out trips into dates rather than have them hide under titles like Fraser or Trip out west!
I would like to try and make it easier for people to find..

The new title format must start with the [ Year - Month - Dates - Trip Destination.. ]
For and example - 2014 March 22-23 - Levuka Mud Puddles

Please let me know if this format works for you or makes it harder to understand!
