    Hi Nic,

    No one has come up with any other options at this stage.

    Iíve had a look at Smythesdale and we can fit heaps in there but after a couple of fires in the area (one yesterday),they have banned fires. Itís got toilets, showers, and a camp kitchen of sorts (with power) and limited 4WDing in the area. Gold coin donation and easy walk into town, pub etc.
    Plenty of extensive 4WD tracks at Mt Cole about 70km away and swimming (fishing) at Burrumbeet about 20 km away.

    Other local options are Slatey Creek and Mt Beckworth but these have limited sites and will be busy I expect.

    Let me know your thoughts and Iím happy to arrange it if we have any starters. Iím looking at more of a family type get together and Iíll be there from Friday onwards.

    @Bob easy access for grumpy old men.
    Cheers

    I've been thinking of doing something on the long weekend but not sure what? Was thinking of heading up the Border Track if it's not too hot, but have no plans whatsoever.

    This 'south of Ballarat' option interests me. Only thing is I don't know anyone.
    .. speak up, my hearing isn't what it used to be. It used to be my vision and I can't see what you're saying ..

    At this stage it doesnít look like this meetup will be going ahead BUT that may change if we get some more takers. Iíll keep you posted.

    Never let ĎOnly thing is I don't know anyoneí stop you from going to a meetup, first meetup I was on my own and made very welcome. Been to heaps since and they are a very welcoming mob.
    Cheers

    Good to know. There're a few folks on this forum I'd like to thank for their help & advice, some are over in WA. Great excuse for a trip over from Vic.

    I don't have a tent lol, gave it away and the roof top tent isn't totally suitable to carry a 4 month old up and down the ladder especially in the middle of the night. I have to put to work into getting the camper trailer back in order.
