Canberra BBQ and Picnic @ Tidbinbilla 2/10/11

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

Thank you all for coming to the Kingo in civic, I am however arranging a new meeting at Tidbinbilla.

Tidbinbilla is a nature reserve in the east of the ACT. There are a number of BBQ spots and a playground for the small people.

Last time I had a BBQ there I had a Kangaroo hop by me, awesome treat for my friend who flew from the UK to visit me.

Anyway, to get into the reserve it costs $10 for the day or $30 for the year. This is for a car of up to 8 people. I would recommend a 1 year pass as you'll use it!!

Anyway, we'll meet up at 12.00 noon again, I'll try and get their earlier and take my England flag with me so that you know we are the POMS. I will also take my radio if there happen to be a rugby game on.

Lastly, it's a long weekend, so no worrying about work the next day, get in!!!

See you there

 

Nik

we are also away the 2 public holiday weekends in October so what say we do it twice then? Say the 18th or 25 th of September & then again 16th or 23rd October to meet up with the newest arrivals - probably best to go for the earlier options to make sure Nik doesn't get caught short with his baking.


Catherine & Rob +ve AIM Assessment 03/09 (HR Mgr), ACT SS applied 9/4/09, ACT SS Approved 17/7/09, Meds 5.8.09, C/O 19.8.09, GRANT 27.8.09!! Flew Boxing day 09!

Jen and I arrive in Canberra on the Sunday 25th September. We don't have any kids so any time after this date will be fine for us! We'll keep checking this thread to see what date is confirmed.

Family Anderson will be there, with some sub standard ozzie sausages (been here nearly a year and have yet to find any :) )

 

We love tidbinbilla it really is great place; lakes with platypus in it and koalas in the forest, and a good kiddy playground although it's very disconcerting walking on the trails to come face to face with some evil looking emu's.

 

Cheers
