    We haven't had a weekend meet for too long..Anyone interested?

    I look each time I'm on AP to see if there are any weekends planned. I loved the Armidale autumn leaves weekend that Wayne and Dianne organized and the Kilarney Falls as well. Toowoomba area was suggested last year but came to nothing. With all of us in Brisbane and Gold Coast, and so many beautiful areas nearby, it should be easy to select a venue and have a fun get together. I confess, I learn so much from all of you at these events.

    One suggestion from me: There are heaps of autumn colours around Stanthorpe & Tenterfield washed down by visits to wineries and berry farms. At least 3 national parks with rock formations, ghost gully with it's sandstone sculptural structures, numerous old railway stations and mining remnants. There is also Stannum house in Stanthorpe itself which had mystery evenings in an olde world dining room last time I went through there.

    Any other ideas? At this stage, I think after easter would be better..we have a couple of long weekends coming up.

    Hi all. The autumn colours are just starting to turn down here in Armidale. We are more than happy to host a weekend around Armidale after Easter if anyone is interested. Probably the best times for the Autumn colour will be in the two weeks straight after Easter. Unfortunately this doesn't fit in with the Queensland long weekends. However if anyone was interested in a visit to Armidale around this time we would be more than happy to host. We have 5 acres just out of town that people can pitch tents on.

    Alternatively if something was happening around Tenterfield or Stanthorpe areas we would be interested in going.

    I enjoyed the Armidale weekend at Wayne and Di's last time- they were great hosts! Travel is longer to there but accomodation would be cheap! Stanthorpe/ Tenterfield would be more expensive accomodation- wise depending on numbers and whether we wanted to make it fancy at somewhere like Stannum House or Henry's cottage in Tenterfield. It would be equally good as a spring venture as well if we wished to do both throughout the year.

    For your consideration in deciding where to go, I just checked google maps : GOLD COAST TO TENTERFIELD is 3 Hrs 53mins on route 44 from Bangalow. GOLD COAST TO ARMIDALE is 472 km and 6 hours 15 mins.

    I checked accomodation in the Tenterfield area-there are camping faciities , cabins, farmstays, motels, B& B's.
    I goofed about Stannum house -its in Tenterfield as well. The links below give you a glimpse of the accomodation, I mentioned.
    1. Stannum House - Tenterfield NSW - Bed & Breakfast Accommodation stannumhouse.com.au/
    2. Henry's Cottage- tenterfield www.henryparkestenterfield.com.au
    I'll ring and see what group deals they could offer and get back to you. Obviously it will depend on numbers and what type of accomodation everyone wants- cheap or luxury.

    Hello everyone.

If anyone is interested please post on the NSW thread link below so that we can keep track of the interest in one thread. We look forward to meeting anyone that can attend.

    Wayne and Di have said that their armidale weekend won't go ahead due to recent rain causing the autumn leaves to drop prematurely. So if anyone cares to join them and myself in May at Tenterfield we'll organize that as a alternative...how does weekend of 19th and 20th sound?

    We will keep going round in circles if we don't get a date fixed to work towards. I don't mind which date if anyone has a preference. Can we get expessions of interest for 19th & 20th May as Plan A or date requests as Plan B?
