    Easter Camping trip 2011

    I know its a while away but Easter books out real fast. This year we have an extra day due to the Anzac holiday.

    Easter falls on Friday 22nd April 2011. Have up to Tuesday as holidays.

    A couple of us have decided to go to Girraween National Park. The site is here to look at. There is a link to book on line.

    If you are interested I'd be booking as soon as you can. It goes on how many people are allowed in the park. Once you are there it's find your spot. No sites are allocated. There are hot showers(free) and loos(I think they flush). For van's there are spots posted for them but if we know how many are going we can save places close together.

    If you are interested, you HAVE to book prior to going....and early. Fills fast. Even if it's months away for that time of year.

    There are 2 camp sites in Girraween. The one we are going to and recommended by the guy I rang was "Castle Rock" campground. You turn off the highway into Girraween National Park camping grounds. Bald Rock Creek Camp ground is first and he said go 200m past that one to "Castle Rock". That's the one we will be at.

    It's bush camping. No power. You can have fires in the BBQ pits but you have to supply your own wood. Gas cookers are probably a must.

    Lots to see and do there. Explore the giant granite boulders, walks, falls and winerys. Tenterfield and Stanthorp are close by. Tenterfield has plenty to look at. Maybe we can organise a lunch in there one day.

    So if you are interested, book and tell us so we can save an area as a group.

    Wongi Waterholes was a great meet last year. Lots of us went to that. I'm sure this could be even better.
    Thanks for looking....Cheers,
    Julie-Anne / Julie / Jules / Julesy / JAS

    Do we need to have our own tents or they have tents so we can rent?

    We do have a huge tarp we will put up as extra shelter like last time. So you will have a dry/cool area where we usually meetup and socialize.

    I have just booked...

    5 less counting us 2, 7 have been booked from yesterday. From 350 people at one time in the 2 camp sites, there is 202 people left allowed to book. So if you really want to go I'd be booking to save your spot. Easter is a busy time and with camping being bigger than ever, positions go fast.

    When you do book...please let me know you have so I can save that amount of sites. We plan on getting there early the Friday.

    I've booked for three nights (22nd to 25th) with my family. 4 people in total. My wife, me and two sons.

    When I made the booking, there is a field called group name. I have filled "AP", not sure if it is the right group name, or doesn't matter.

    Have fun

    Would love to join in, but I think it is a bit far out for me to confirm that I can get Easter off work.
    And it is a long drive all the way down there, google is telling me 850 ish kilometres, so 9-10 hour drive.
    I think I will pass and wait for the next one

    I was meant to say the group name. "AP" is fine but I put "AusPhotography".
