Treks & Activities Event

9 TO 13 SEPTEMBER 2024 

This will be a self-drive trek with car pooling for travel around the region. The plan is to stay at the Top of the Town Tourist Park which has a range of powered and unpowered van sites, cabins and motel style rooms.

The program is still being developed but current plans are to include:

  • Visiting the Amiens Legacy Centre that showcases the history of the area, in particular the soldier settlement scheme
  • Delving into the mining history of the area, perhaps including Liston in NSW
  • Examining some of the geology of the region including a short walk along good tracks in Girraween National Park to showcase some of the granites of the area
  • Visiting a commercial strawberry farm, a winery, and possibly an olive grove and or other horticultural farm to get background on the industries.
  • Driving south to Wallangarra to see the railway history at the change of gauge to NSW and, pre Federation, the Customs history
  • Seeing some of the wildflowers of the area if the season is appropriate.

Costs will be determined after a reconnaissance of the area.
