The second of two Club field trips is a camping adventure at Litchfield National Park. We have access to the Environmental Education Centre's private camp ground which is close to Buley Rockhole and Florence Falls. The site consists of a large grassed area for camping adjacent to a creek and small swimming hole, and a large open shed with a kitchen, gas burners and gas fridges. Toilet and shower blocks have conventional flushing toilets.
The Club will pay the minimal camping fee so attendance is free for participants. This event is suitable for first time campers and families.
Planned activities will include night time spotlighting (Sugar Gliders are often observed), Rock Wallaby spotting, bird walks in monsoon forest and savannah habitats, Lost City exploration walk and more.
Bring: your own tent and camping gear, food, crockery/cutlery, binoculars, headlamp/torch, camera, insect repellent, closed walking shoes. Water is pumped directly from the adjacent creek so you may like to consider bringing your own drinking water.
Location: the turn off to the campsite is opposite and about 75m before the Buley Rockhole turn off - it's a short drive on the unsealed road to the campsite.
Camping spaces are limited so please contact Mark Grubert on 0407 843 174 to reserve your spot. Preference will be given to club members. Book your place ASAP so you don't miss out.
