Just letting everyone know that Xmas in July at Canungra was booked for 2017 while we were still there in 2016!
For those of you that haven’t been to Canungra, it’s a lovely little village west of the Gold Coast with plenty of things to do around the area, such as O’Reillys Guesthouse, Lamington Plateau, wineyards, hot air ballooning etc etc.
So I’ve re-confirmed dates with Garry, caretaker at Canungra Showgrounds. He’s definitely reserved the area for us around the great new camp kitchen from Thursday 27 to Monday 31 July. Camping with power at the Showgrounds will cost $25/night/couple, dogs are allowed on leads & fires are allowed in drums. No need to book a spot, just let me know in this thread by PM or by text if you want to come & which nights you will be coming. Just pay Garry in first house on right as you drive into Showgrounds. Phone 075543 5904 if you want further info from Garry.
Xmas Dinner in July will be at 6.00pm on Saturday Night 29 July at the Canungra Hotel with open fireplace, set dinner of roast turkey & ham, roast & steamed veges, plum bpudding, tea/coffee/bonbons for $22/person. Hotel has courtesy bus that will take us in batches to the Pub & back home again. We will need definite numbers for dinner in advance in this thread & people can pay Dosse & Christine in the Camp Kitchen between 4.00-5.00 on Saturday afternoon then get ready for bus by 5.30pm.
Friday night dinner will be a share meal at 6.00pm in the camp kitchen. Whatever you are bringing to share, whether its main course or dessert, come along at 6.00, bring chairs, plates & hopefully we will all eat together. Please also contribute some firewood if you can!
Should be another great weekend at Canungra! All welcome!

Please add us to the list. Looking forward to our second time at Canungra. It was july 2015 when we last had the FJ and van out for a run.Long time between drinks eh! Can't wait. Were in for the long haul Thursday to Monday. Will be great to catch up with everyone again. Ron and Anne. PS. we are in for the pub dinner . Thanks
As there haven't been enough definites for the Xmas in July meal at the Pub, I've cancelled the booking. I told the Pub we will still come to the Pub on Sat night & we can all order off the menu to our own preferences. Bus will leave from Camp Kitchen after 5.45pm to go to Pub.
Friday night, it's up to you! Bring a dish to share in the camp kitchen from 6pm, eat your own tucker in your van, the options are limitless!
Just remember to bring some firewood and a big jacket !

Well the work devil strikes again. We won't be able to make it as planned. Hope everyone has a great time. Will try again next year. Hope to be semi retired by then with more time at our disposal. Here's hoping. Cheers. Ron and Anne
