Abseiling week-end at Brooyar State Forest.  Camping at the nearby Glastonbury camp grounds, provides drop toilets and good shaded/cooler camping areas.  Water can be collected down the road at a nearby creek crossing for showers. You will need to bring drinking water and fire wood (if wanting fires).   As this activity can require a lot of organising, I am inviting people to tell me of their interest at this time, to assist in planning.  We will have to limit the numbers attending, which depends on how many of our more experienced abseilers might be available.  We shall also need to have a morning session at the Kangaroo Point cliffs on a prior week-end (yet to be determined) to brush up on basic abseiling skills and other prep.  Please let me know if you might be interested so that I may start the planning... 0411 512 202 & email: t.davern@hotmail.com

Base Camp Booloumba.  The plan is to camp at either

Booloumba Ck camping area 1 or 3 on the Sunday and Monday after the abseil weekend. It only takes 1 hour from Glastonbury to Booloumba ck (then you don’t have to worry about battling the traffic back to Brisbane).  People who did not attend the abseil camp may join us from Brisbane.  As this is not a weekend I will only be making my booking at the last minute.  https://www.npsr.qld.gov.au/parks/conondale/camping.html  Day walks I am looking at are Summer Ck Falls a creek with beautiful pools for swimming, moderate rockhopping up the creek, a spectacular gorge to swim through and a two part waterfall to climb. The other option is Lobster Ck, a relatively easy creek to walk in for the first 2-3 kms. We will then return the same way. If people do not feel like the day walk the campground is very relaxing beside the nice creek.  This activity will only go ahead if the weather looks reasonable.

Mount Cotton Walk– this walk is approx. 7 km return and takes about two hours.  Suitable as an introductory walk for prospective new members, or a training walk for members.  (There is the option to take the harder walk up Mongrel Hill.)   We will leave from the Green Box at 7:00 am.  Plenty of parking on the opposite side of the road in a cleared gravel area in front of property no. 712-730 West Mount Cotton Rd, Sheldon.  Hiking poles are recommended as there are loose gravel spots.  After the walk we have coffee at the West Mount Cotton Nursery and Café.

Lower Portals through walk now changed to Lower Portals day walk.  It will involve a 4km track walk to the creek and then short but steep up over a ridge and down the other side back to the creek.  From there we will rock hop up the beautiful creek to a waterfall where we will have lunch and a swim if it’s warm enough (of course it will be: it’s November). We go back the way we came. This is not a difficult walk but rock hopping skills are necessary.  For more information, contact Tracy 04176 65 382 or Betty 0408 129 241.

Mount Tamborine. This is the Curtis Falls - Joalah Cct walk. 

This is a track walk and should take one and a half to two hours. I have not seen the track since the rain and there might be muddy sections but I don't think it will be too bad.  I have not had my walking boots on for over a year due to heel spurs and I am now starting out again with something short and easy.  This walk would also be suitable for beginners.  We will meet at the car park off Dapsang Drive at 8.00am.  After the walk we will adjourn for coffee at my daughter's new cafe - Wild Plum Kitchen - at the end of Gallery Walk (this could be an ulterior motive for the walk).  Please contact me by email  dudleygr@hotmail.com or on 0407 646 057 if you are interested.  Dudley Reid
