Aussie Day Brooyar - Thurs 25th/Sun 28th

Tue Jan 16, 2018 11:03 am

Admit it! I know you're all missing the Blue Mountains' beautiful climbing and weather.
Unfortunately we can't escape the Queensland heat but we can distract ourselves with some awesome climbing and sick chills.
Can you imagine a better way to spend Australia Day?

For those of you who haven't experienced its greatness, Brooyar is the club's closer home away from home, for when we miss the Blue Mountains and want to feel that beautiful sandstone under our fingers. The climbing crags are located in the Brooyar State Forest North west of Gympie, which is about a 2.5 hour drive from Brisbane.


When
The plan is to drive up in the afternoon/evening of Thursday 25th Janurary, returning on the afternoon of Sunday 28th. Please state in your sign-up post if you will be attending for the entire trip, or only for specific dates. If you are flexible with arrival/departure dates, please say so as this may help us to plan carpooling.


Climbs
There are several beautiful sandstone crags offering a wide range of climbing styles and grades, ensuring there is something for everyone! The climbing quality is great, and you'll never look at KP the same way again once you've climbed here. Styles include everything from slab to overhung and face climbing.
Check out the Crag and get those tick lists started.

Transport
Car pooling will be organised after signup closes. It will be up to you to organise pick ups in Brisbane with your driver/passengers. If you are a passenger on this trip you will need $20 fuel money ($10 each way) to give to your driver.


What to bring
WATER: There is no drinking water available at Brooyar, so bring at least 4-5L for yourself per day. However, non-potable water is available for washing etc.
SUNSCREEN: Its mid Summer, you do not want to get burnt - ask Matt(Mitch) for his story.

Camping gear: tent, sleeping bag (and mat), pillow, cutlery, bowl, cup etc.
Extras (if you have): portable stove, esky, firewood. Please organise your camping gear (tents, esky) in advance. If you have extra space in your tent, or other camping gear you are willing to lend, please mention it in your sign-up post so others requiring said gear can contact you about it.

Climbing gear: harness, shoes, belay device, helmet and safeties at a bare minimum. If you need to borrow any gear, organise with Quartermasters Andrew and/or Aaron early on (at least two KP nights before the trip).

Food: Enough food to sustain you for your entire trip. If you have an esky or are sharing an esky cold food is good, however if you don't own an esky then it is recommended that you bring dry food, and/or fruits and veg, nothing that needs to be cold and won't go off.

Camping Permit: Please purchase yourself a camping permit for Glastonbury Creek Campground from the national park's booking service. Do this prior to leaving Brisbane.

Rubbish: Brooyar is pack it in, pack it out. There are no bins anywhere, so give some thought to minimising the amount of packaging you bring, and how you're going to carry it back out. (eg, re-usable containers instead of disposable plastic, cans instead of bottles, prepare food ahead to reduce waste, bring rubbish bags)

Sign up
Sign up by replying to this thread using the following fields. Make sure you tell us what days you'll be coming for and where you'll be leaving from (suburb) so we can organise appropriate carpooling.
Sign-up closes Tuesday 23rd at 7pm.
