The Rotary Club of Toowoomba East(RCTE) have been running Tag alongs for the past 15 years…. traditionally we have run “OUTBACK GETAWAY “ bi-annually, which is a fully catered tag along that is accompanied with a 4 piece band and support vehicles, and has auctions of donated goods raising up to $100,000 for various charities. This year the club is running Happy Trekkers for the first time.
Happy Trekkers is a BYO Tag along that will have Country Singers & Bush Poet entertainment, and vehicle support. We will have a large mobile BBQ & a Wood Chuck Wagon providing fuel for the communal campfire which will be the focal point at night. The adventure will have 3 two night stay’s and 1 one nighter. (And at least 2 locations where an evening meal may be arranged, together with Shearing Quarters type accommodation.) The trek will start at Toowoomba, go West of Tenterfield in the Torrington State Recreation Area & then wind its way East through Washpool National Park, the Yabra National Park, the Richmond Range, the Toonumbar National Park, and the Border ranges taking in some of the best scenery including that on private properties, returning to Toowoomba via Main Range National Park following the head waters of the Murray/Darling waterway in Qld.
We will be staying at a farm stay, a 4wd park, a resort on the Clarence River and a Park and will radiate around those venues sightseeing & enjoying the country-side highlights. Vehicles with low range will be able to traverse all sections, however those without (but with good clearance), will be escorted through alternate routes as appropriate. Off-road campertrailers are welcome but caravans will be unsuitable. The trip is being supported by members of the Downs 4WD Club who will act as “Trek Marshalls” responsible for route matters and safe conduct. The route is planned to be limited to “Medium” classification as per Outdoor Sports & Recreation Competency Standards.
The Trek will be leisurely with “time to smell the roses” averaging about 300k/day with a lay-day mid week with action contained, on that day to canoeing, other river activities & Bird watching, or simply relaxing by the Clarence River.
..the HT route takes you through some really fantastic scenery & you will love the Fun & Fellowship!
Monies raised are Tax Deductable & will go to supporting the Toowoomba Hospice.
