Esk is a wonderful little town on the Brisbane Valley Highway, way less than 2 hours away from wherever you may live in greater Brisbane. We plan to show you a couple of the less visited places in the area which give a chance of seeing a selection of bush birds including the elusive Spotted Quail-thrush and Painted Button-quail.
Our agenda is not yet set in concrete, but be prepared to take morning tea and lunch on our Saturday outing. Our first activity will be a local walk leaving our ‘gathering place’ at approximately 3:30 pm followed by Happy Hour and Bird Call from 5:30 on.
The Esk Caravan Park is a very short walk to the town centre. It has a range of accommodation and facilities to suit most needs and wants. These include 2 heated swimming pools, BBQ’s and Pizza Ovens, camp kitchens, an entertainment area plus a smaller ‘Chill n Grill’ area which I anticipate being our gathering place. I have asked for 5 adjacent powered sites to be set aside for our campers. Should you be wanting one of these, please let the park know you are with the Birds Queensland group.
- For campers: Powered site (2 people) $45; Unpowered site $31.
- Cabins have a 2 night minimum: Ensuite with double bed $114 per night.
- There is also a Bunkhouse with a shared ensuite which can accommodate up to 4 people (2 x 2 bunk rooms). With 4 people it is $124 per night. For 2 people, $94 per night.
- Motel rooms are also available from $132 per night.
Please make your booking direct with the caravan park and let the camp leaders know that you are attending. Bookings that had been already made for March should have been transferred. Thanks.
