Join us for a camping trip to Yuleba!

About this Event

An overnight camping trip to Yuleba approximately 5 hours west of Brisbane. Out there will be road cruising and investigating some remnant Brigalow belt to see what sort of herps we are able to find. Being west of the Great Dividing Range and heading into semi-arid Qld there will be a wide variety of different species that we cannot normally find around Brisbane including mulgas (Pseudechis australis) and golden-tailed geckos (Strophurus taenicauda). This trip promises to be an extremely fun and offers a chance for you to head out and explore some of semi-arid Qld.

For this trip we plan to meet at the taxi rand in Chancellors place at 10 am. As soon as everyone has arrived, we will then begin the drive west to Yuleba stopping in at Dalby along the way to purchase food and supplies. We will then aim to arrive and set up camp at Judds Lagoon which is a free campground just outside of Yuleba and then relax and wait for night to arrive. We will then spend a large portion of the night road cruising around the state forests surrounding Yuleba to see what interesting animals we can find. Then on Sunday we will lazily make our way back to Brisbane stopping at various interesting points along the way to see what we can find before arriving back at UQ around 5 pm.

The cost for this trip is $30 to cover the fuel expenses for the drivers. Currently there is only 10 tickets available for this trip which you can purchase following the Yuleba link below, however if anyone else is also willing to drive (please contact us) the number of tickets may increase. Please note that this is a BYO trip for food and drinks. As mentioned above there will be scheduled times for us to pick up groceries along the way, however it is your responsibility to do so. Limited cooking equipment (gas stove, pans, pots) will be available, along with an esky for cold things. As we are camping, members are also expected to be self sufficient and bring their own camping equipment (tent, mattress, pillow, etc). If you do not have any of this equipment and would still like to attend, please get in contact ASAP as there is limited equipment to borrow, however it is on a first come first served basis.
