Forthcoming Outings

A quick up-date regarding forthcoming outings.

There is a mid week outing on Wednesday, July 26 to Ben Bennet Botanical Garden in Caloundra led by Vince Lee. Please meet at the Queen Street entrance at 8am. Remember to bring morning tea, water etc. Good opportunities for birding after in and around the Caloundra headlands. No RSVP necessary.

Notice too for a ‘week end away’ for the weekend of 18, 19 and 20 of August. The plan is to depart Nambour c5-30pm on the 18 for Esk. Saturday would involve a day trip to Lockyer Valley – a variety of habitats which promise a suite of many species uncommon or impossible on the Sunshine Coast. Sunday will have a morning’s birding close to Esk before driving back to the Sunshine Coast in the afternoon. Cost tba, however it will be in the $150 ball park I imagine, depending on numbers. The price will include transport, accommodation and lunches on Saturday and Sunday. Please register your interest asap as it is “a case of first in best dressed’.

Our Saturday August outing will be to Sheep Station Creek – details to follow.
