Itinerary

Our AW Girraween 2022 adventure departs early Friday morning from Brisbane, where you can leave your car in a secure location and enjoy a private bus tour firstly to the Stanthorpe Cheese Factory followed by lunch at Jamworks (at your own expense!). Your leaders will also use this opportunity to select some local produce for the weekend. A stop at a Chocolate shop is scheduled before heading to our accommodation for the weekend at

Girraween Environmental Lodge.

Take the afternoon to unpack and explore the natural bushlands surrounding your chalet - through woodlands and forests, across creeks, and pass by extraordinary rock formations. Keep an eye out for wildlife that call this area home - kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas, wombats, dunnarts, gliders, turtles, crayfish, birds, snakes, goannas etc.

We will meet in the late afternoon by the outdoor spa for a swim, a glass of bubbles and nibbles, followed by a shared dinner prepared by your leaders.

Head out after dinner for some star-gazing if the weather allows.

Meals: Snack, Dinner

An early start today with a continental breakfast, before we head to Girraween NP.

We provide lunch for you to pack, along with fruit and snacks. Today's walk is a 11.5km return walk to the Eye of the Needle - two balancing rocks on Girraween's highest peak - Mt Norman. Allow 4-5 hours for this walk that travels through eucalypt forests, past massive granite outcrops and alongside colourful rock slabs. A point of interest along the way is a granite cairn which marks the original trigonometrical survey station erected on the mountain.

Girraween National Park is situated on the northern extremity of the New England Tableland. Its remarkable scenery is one of the best examples of a granite landscape in Australia and results from many millions of years of geological activity and weathering.

This trail offers a side trip to one of the park’s signature peaks - Castle Rock. If the weather allows, tackle the steep climb over exposed granite rocks to be rewarded by jaw-dropping 360-degree views across the park.

The afternoon is at leisure, before we head on the bus to one of the local wineries for dinner.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Snack, Dinner

Enjoy a leisurely start to this morning with a continental breakfast in your cabin, before packing our bags and heading back to enjoy some of the Northern walking tracks of Girraween National Park.

Today's walk is to The Junction and Granite Arch, 6km or around 2 hours of walking time. Marvel at Girraween's natural stone archway created by massive balancing boulders before exploring along the banks of Bald Rock Creek to The Junction. Its cool, dark waters are fringed by flowering shrubs that attract honeyeaters and parrots.This track is a must for wildflower lovers.

We then head for a well earned lunch and wine tasting at one of the many wineries nearby before heading to our last stop for a coffee and some nougat. Enjoy a sleepy afternoon road trip while a leader drives you back to Brisbane. Estimated arrival time is 5:30pm.

Accommodation

Experience the tranquility of the Australian bush in one of three spacious self-contained luxury cabins at Girrawheen Environmental Lodge that we've booked for our group's Girls Getaway. Made from recycled timber, the architecturally designed cabins ooze elegant luxury, complete with all the comforts of home including wood fired heaters and spa bath.

 

Our group will be spread across 3 two bedroom cabins, accommodating 4 ladies in each.  If you are travelling with a friend, please let us know at the time of book and we'll ensure you share a room with them.  If not and you're travelling solo, we'll team you up with another lady in the group (many of our travellers come along solo)  The main cabin where the leaders will be is where the group will meet for dinner and socialising.

An educational and enjoyable experience. The guides were knowledgeable about the history of the area and some of the indigenous culture and were more than willing to answer any questions. I particularity enjoyed sampling some of the bush tucker, and that local products were used where possible. Lots of fresh foods offered which made delicious camping food.😊😊

The activities and walks were all very informative and easy going in a very picturesque setting. If you've got little to no experience with camping before, this is a great introduction! I've been camping heaps and this was the most relaxed, stressless and fun camping weekend away, especially being fully catered.
