Interested in coming along to meet us!!

Bushwalkers of Southern Queensland is one of the original hiking clubs in south east Qld.

Club Meetings are held on the 2nd Tuesday of each month, starting at 7.30pm.

We meet at the Little Kings Movement Hall, cnr O'Keefe & Carl Streets, Buranda (enter via Carl St).

 

At club meeting, there is usually entertainment such as members' presentations 

or a guest speaker or a formal meeting and always a light supper.

New or Potential Members and Guests are asked to come along to our monthly meeting and say Hi.    

You can then nominate for your preferred walk, or social event.

   

 

Resumption of Club walks


COVID 19 Requirements: It is very important to abide by the COVID 19 requirements which means you should not take part in the walks on the day if you are showing any of the symptoms of COVID 19. 
This includes fever,
a cough, tiredness, shortness of breath, sore throat, headache and other symptoms which can be found on the Qld Govt site: https://www.covid19.qld.gov.au 

 

 

Repeated and postponed walks this Saturday 13/2/2021

There will be 2 short notice daywalks this Saturday, a hard and an easy option.

(1) Belsons Falls
The recent walk to Belsons Falls (also called Wanungra Falls according to ancient signage) was successful in getting to the falls, but several people who were interested in going couldn't do so on the day.  Therefore, Heather has very kindly offered to lead another walk there this Saturday for their benefit and for anyone else keen to go.  It will be a long day - up to 24 km and 8 hours of walking, but only the last 600 m is off-track.  Departure time will be earlier than the first trip, likely to be 6.30 from Canungra, but confirm with Heather (3814 2556).  More info on the walk in the January newsletter and the trip report in the February one.

(2) Spicers Gap area
The easier option will be the walk in the Spicers Gap area that couldn't be held on 10 January because of the COVID lockdown.  Details as in the December newsletter.  Nominate to John Hegarty (0407 962876) if interested.

Thanks to both Heather and John for offering these walks.

 
 

 

Below is a rough guide only to planned walks, that the club plans to run to June 2021. This is an interim guide and subject to change at very short notice. Club members will be advised of changes via email, Club Meetings or contact with Walks Leader.
