What we're about

Welcome to South East Queensland Campers

This group has been running for 7 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 $5:00 joining fee upon acceptance / admission into the group. ( $10:00 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 2019 and will be required to be paid yearly. If paid after 1 April following year $2:50 per person will be paid.

All visitors will be required to pay $2:00 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 but am 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 name on payment 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.

Disco Mania 70s 80s Live Music and Camping

268 Rasmussen Rd

LIVE MUSIC WEEKEND - Neurum Creek Bush Retreat, just under 1.5 hours from Brisbane, has a Disco Mania Weekend - two-night camping package comprising of concert ticket and camp site fee. On the Saturday night there’s a cover band playing 70's and 80’s hits to get you dancing. For those that want to turn the clock back and relive good (or horrid) memories of the disco era with mirror balls, tight flared pants and John Travolta struts; then get in fast as these concert/camping events sell out fast. It is not a group booking as they can't hold space so it's a first in, best 'dressed' scenario. You need to book and pay in full online at the time of booking (online or phone). Be quick so you don't miss out! I've already booked and paid; and hope to inspire a few fellow campers on to the dance floor. Further information forthcoming to those that RSVP. Thanks, Linda http://www.ncbr.com.au/ ANNUAL MEETUP FEE $5: Payable to Ross Bowering our Group Organiser. BSB[masked] Account[masked] Ross will mark you Unpaid then amended to “Paid”, once funds clear - may take a week or so. Ensure there is reference of your profile name for identification.
