Both Venues are within the same park grounds. Six free to use push button electric BBQ's are available with a total of six 240v power outlets for your power needs. There are five shade sails along the lake edge, a kids sand pit/ play area plus clean toilets and showers.

A small snack hut providing pies, hotdogs, chips and chocolates will be on site. The nearest Woolworths super market is approx 3 kilometers away. The center of town is approx 5 kilometers away with various take away food outlets available and an ex-services club for entertainment.

It's started!

The first RC boater has just arrived, all the way from Brisbane (a couple of thousand Km's away)! He came early so he and I can tweak and tune his unused Gasser before hand.
I think a few drinks around the fire pot will be on the cards tonight.

It's pretty gratifying to see something I have been working so hard on coming to fruition. Plus for at least one weekend I will have others to run with.
