Australia Day Picnic & BBQ

Australia Day is the official National Day of Australia and celebrated annually on 26th Jan with picnic and BBQ. Let's gather at Cedar Creek Falls Picnic Area and spend the day there with water falls & rock pools close by. Cedar Creek Falls are cascade of falls with 2 or 3 rock pool areas. The lookout platform is only 5 min walk from the picnic area. And the rock pools at the base are about 500m.

Cedar Creek Falls is about 65km south of Brisbane CBD. See Google Map for directions here:
Or enter in your GPS: Cedar Creek Falls Road, Tamborine.

Essential to bring: Chair, food (enough to share with others), drinks, sun-cream, hat, swimmers if you want to jump in the rock pools.

We have the option for the BBQ. There are BBQ in the park but it may be busy so if anyone have portable BBQ, please bring (check here first), I can bring the gas.

Car Park & the amenities are available at the picnic area.

Car pooling: Please carpool if possible because parking can become issue on this day. Ask for carpool here and offer $10 to the driver.

    Weather was just perfect whole day. Event was well attended, about 50 people came from different meetup groups. As usual BBQ was popular and so was swim, walks and chat. Thanks all those who came and made it a memorable Australia Day.

    :::::::: IMPORTANT ::::::::

    Our venue is Cedar Creek Falls Picnic Area in Tamborine Mountain - NOT Cedar Creek Falls in Mt Nebo. (some people are known to end up at wrong place from other meetup group due to this similarity of name). Cheers

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
