What we're about

Welcome to South East Queensland Campers

This group has been running for 10 years and although it group was originally started as a family camping group it has grown into a much more general group now, consisting mainly of middle aged campers and grey nomads. There are also other meetup and separate social camping groups catering specifically for young families.

We have some co-organisers to assist in organisng events and running the group but it is quite autonomous where members can organise their own event as long as they do all the organising and answer all queries relating to their event.

As camping fees vary from site to site we will endeavour to try and cater to all budgets, including sites suitable for dogs.

The aim here is for us all to make new friends in a relaxed happy atmosphere.

If you know of any great spots to go feel free to post them as a suggestion.

Camping is a heap of fun but can be so much more fun as a group. This group is created for us all to head out in our tents, campers or caravans to enjoy the outdoors and the company of new friends in a friendly environment.

We have members ranging from northern NSW to central Queensland and they all enjoy camping, whether in tent or van, and sitting round a campfire at night!

All members are required to pay a $7.50 joining fee upon acceptance / admission into the group. ( $15:00 per couple) This will become our annual membership fee which covers yourself for all meetup events attended during that year (venue charges are an additional member cost). The funds raised cover meetup site charges and also used to subsidize targeted group events.

This will take effect 1 October 2020/a> and will be required to be paid yearly. If paid after 1 April following year $5:00 per person will be paid.

All visitors will be required to pay $5:00 per meetup.

Being paid up will show on your profile and if not paid by 10 days after these dates you will be removed from the group however able to rejoin at any time in the future.

Our 'no show' / 'late cancellation' policy is easy - if you no show to an event or cancel your attendance within 24 hours of an event where a booking has been made, on two separate occasions - you may be removed from the group. It's important we do the right thing by our venues & the group - plus, it's just good manners.

People who have already paid for events after this date will be credited that amount to go towards their fee.

When you go to pay please put your meetup profile name on payment reference otherwise I don’t have a clue what is happening and you won’t get credited.

Payments to SEQ Campers. BSB 304278 AC 0174565

Join up now and don't forget to RSVP to the next meet up - we'd love to meet you there.

Lake Borumba Caravan & Camping Ground

Borumba Dam

Frances is putting up this weekend Facilities: hot and cold showers, toilets, well appointed camp kitchen, rubbish bins, several fire places, and water that is not guarenteed for drinking. Therefore everyone should bring drinking water. The general use water is either collected rain water or trucked in: looks very clear, so boiled is OK for drinking. There is a creek running along the edge of the camp ground, which is the downstream flow released from the dam. The temperature is cold, but most enjoyable to swim in on a hot day. Good kyaking as well. Last month the price was $14 per person per night - probably not much different in the future, but anyone planning to come should check and book with the campground and pay directly to them. No pets, unfortunately. The ground is via Imbil. Google maps had it about 5 km to the east of where it really is, but there is only one road, and it is on the right heading west, about 600 metres before the actual Lake Borumba, and the end of the road. Comments added 17/10/20 Glad to see people getting organised 6 weeks beforehand. I'm really looking forward to it and it should be a great weekend! Suggested group area I've changed the event photo to indicate the suggested SE Qld group camping area, next to the powered sites. However, everyone is free to camp wherever they wish to in this long, elongated campground. Some will want shade, (eg Georges and me); others will look for sun for their solar power, or have booked powered sites. Fires and firewood The camping ground has several fire pits available for campers. Georges and I will now be arriving Thursday and will be bringing enough firewood for at least 1 night. If you can bring a bag, please post this as a comment. If we have half a dozen bags we’ll have a good fire on Friday and Saturday nights. Covid-19 considerations On the camping ground website they ask you not to come if you've tested negative or are at risk, and we should all respect this. In light of Queensland's stellar performance on staying almost virus free (hopefully this won't change between now and the 27th November), you may wish to bring some snacks to Happy Hours on Friday and Saturday evenings: up to you and your assessment of risk.
