Take a Trip to see the Stars
Join us and travel to the sleepy town of Maidenwell near Nanango and the Bunya Mts.
Saturday morning, we will be heading up to Maidenwell for a scenic tour via Linville and Nanango. It is a good bitumen/gravel road that crosses the head of the Brisbane River many times. The crossings are well formed and there should be no issue for those towing a caravan or camper trailer.
We will be arriving at Maidenwell around Lunch time to set up camp. Saturday afternoon can be a relaxing afternoon at the camp.
Saturday nights evening is at the Maidenwell pub and observatory. Due to the numbers attending the show, there will be 2 showings. 7pm to 8.30pm and 8.30pm to 10pm. If you have children attending, please be sure to attend the earlier showing.
We are staying on the local sports field, a very short walk to the local pub and observatory. There will be a pig on the spit (TBA) at the local pub. Toilet and shower facilities are at the camp site and the showers operate on $2 coins.
Sunday, after packing up camp, for those who are interested, the group will be heading home via Old Yarraman Road. This track is heavily rutted and there are some interesting rough sections and creek crossings. This road is NOT suited for caravans. 4wd’s and heavy duty off-road camper trailers should be fine.
