CAMPING WEEKEND AT JARRAHDENE
The Club’s October excursion is a weekend camp at the new Jarrahdene camp ground which was recently opened by the Department of Biodiversity Conservation and Attractions.
From Friday October 22 to Sunday October 24, the Club will stay at this campground on Caves Road within the Boranup forest.
To access the campground, drive down Caves Road and the turnoff is some 6.5km south of the Forest Grove Road and Caves Road corner.
Facilities are all brand new and include toilets, gas BBQs and picnic tables.
The site was originally a timber mill belonging to M.C. Davies dating back to the late 1800s which closed in 1913. Remnants of the old mill can still be seen, with an interpretive walk providing information on the timber industry.
Cost of a campsite at Jarrahdene is $15 per night or $9 for concession card holders.
Activities for the weekend include a loop walk through the Boranup karri forest, a visit to (and swim with?) the stingrays at Hamelin Bay and possibly an evening time visit to the Point Road possums.
Numbers are needed now of people wanting to take part in this weekend camp, so we can confirm bookings with DBCA by Friday October 15.
If you wish to join us, please reply to this email or phone Club president Bernie Masters on 0408 944 242 and please advise if you’re interested in staying an extra night and leaving on Monday October 25.
