 beers on the council approval.  Will try hard to get to your show Bob.  Will probably be heading south to get there.  ;)

are there any age restrictions for the field trips for kids?  we loved our visit to Emmaville last school holidays to the museum and my young fella is keen as to get back there.  Probably keener than I am to stay in a tent that time of the year down there.  No public holiday in QLD but we'd probably try and get down for the Sunday & Monday trips.

Quite a bit of water - Reddestone Creek and Beardy Waters.  That area along the Reddestone has had really good quality sapphire taken out but has been well worked/mined over the years so be realistic about what you are likely to find.  Good redfin in the bigger holes if you like fishing - really good eating and feral so no bag limit.

G'day Bak  beers


No age restrictions as we have had couples with babies at Minerama this year. Should be plenty of camping area here as I am putting 2 acres approx for self contained camping depending how many tailgaters I get. I will have fire pits around the food / entertainment area with plenty of wood in them.


G'day Starsapphire,  beers


Had some friends stay at 3 Waters recently & they did very well. Small but plenty of colour. Reddestone Ck runs through it & its a big area so plenty of room. From the interest shown so far, it looks like it will be very well attended. Tickets will be sold on the day as I am not using online bookings.


Cheers,
Bob  beers
