This one didn't happen as we went to Bribie Island and stayed in a caravan park on the waterfront. We were checking out sites for our family get together at Christmas and loved Bribie, so we booked 4 sites there for the Christmas Week. Birdsville Races will have to wait.

International Yabbie Races at Windorah. Sept 3rd

Birdsville Races Sept 5th & 6th

Nov 11th-Dec 3rd Armidale Rockhampton Bribie Island. We just bought a tinnie and motor and folding trailer and roof rack boat loader for our trip to Karumba next year....So we'll go to that park at Bribie Island and get it wet...who knows, we may even catch a fish or 2.
Dates 2009     Well the New Year rolled in and we have no big trips planned this year as yet. We had a site booked at Karumba for May-June '09 However, without telling us, they moved us from the site we booked to one on the other side of the park right next to the toilet block and we didn't fancy staring at the brick wall of a busy dunny for 5 weeks. We will probably spend some of our breaks at Bribie Island and fish the Estuary there.
Nov 24th-Dec3rd Proston,Qld   We're going to camp by the lake at Boondooma Dam via Proston. Then store the Bushtracker at Hervey Bay for a fortnight while we do a job in Rockhampton. Then we'll pick the van up and check into Pialba CP at Hervey Bay so we can spend the Xmas break with Julie's Mum. Fishing for Bass and Redclaw. Lake side camping means we can camp right by the water's edge and leave the tinnie in the water and just pull it up on the bank for the duration.
2011-April 19th - June 14th. Brisbane Kimberley W.A - Rockhampton This is in the planning stage right now. Our problem is, having got to the Kimberley region, we might not want to go back to work.
