Event Description

Dates and Address to be confirmed soon

The address will be sent closer the date. The address is always sent to your email you signed up with, if it is different you will need to change it in your profile

Susan will write up a description of her property , this will be entered well before the day.


A few of us plan to book into a Hotel for the week-end in the area once we have the dates.

I will update with more plans on this event once we finalise does, it will be during the Sept School Holidays.

Something we do plan to do is have everyone who comes along bring a tree (or 2) to plant on the property.

It should be a lovely week-end

Children welcome but must be supervised by parents at all times.

Please bring a small plate of food or drink (you may need to bring more than this but more details will be sent later) to share and any plants, produce or seed that you would like to share, swap or sell.

It is always a good idea to bring along a chair as we do sometimes have more visitors than chairs available at GV gardens.

RSVP required so that the address can be sent to you closer to the date. The email address you nominated when you joined will be used. Please update this if it has changed.

Late attendees welcome. Message Dianne or phone 0407691485 on the day for the address.

and they need to be planted somewhere where people are NOT likely to walk under them at fruiting time.

Yes Susan,

The two bunyas have been potted up into bigger pots and are looking healthy. I also have a number of bunya nuts which may sprout if planted. Do you want me to do this or are two enough? They do grow into huge trees.


Comment by Susan on Friday

Well guys.  I am not expecting you to buy me plants or anything so please, please, please  don’t feel obligated too.   If you are a rate payer however, and you wouldn’t mind, you could take your paid rates notice into any BCC library, they will give you a voucher for 2 free native plants. You can then go to participating local nurseries and choose two native plants which I would greatly appreciate. My plan for the block is to revegetate the front strip with densely planted natives in Liu of a fence.  I also would like to slowly remove the weeds from the creek bed and replant there.  Flowering natives especially but grasses for the creek line would also be great. 

I know Roger you said you might have bunya nut seedlings for me? I would still be keen if you have any spare.  

Thanks heaps guys and I’m really looking forward to the trip.

Thanks Susan, I have changed the dates now. Looking forward to a fun time.

Hi Dianne, I’ve finally sorted myself out.  The date will need to be changed to the 21st and 22nd of September.

Well it looks like my idea to come to your Patch as an alternative to a GV at your place this year was not such a bad idea after all Susan, sounds like we will all have a wonderful week end away, can't wait. As soon as we have the date those of us who can't or are beyond the camping age will book somewhere  as close to the Patch as Possible.

Susan, I thought it might be a good idea if you could tell us the trees that you might want to plant on your property so we know what to bring to plant.

Thx Susan.  Would be great for Zack and Coby to hangout.

Sounds like an awesome weekend.

Comment by Andrew Cumberland on June 3, 2019 at 20:14

I would have my own power and even toilet.  We can bring our own drinking water as well as food. Any rubbish returns home with me.  If something went wrong, I'd just bugger off to Gympie.  LOL.  

Comment by Susan on June 3, 2019 at 20:04

Hi everyone.  Well the driveway is now in so we will be able to get onto the property at least :).  I am thinking about around the weekend of the 20th but that is not set in stone yet as I have my 40th to organise.  I am more than happy if people want to camp provided you understand how primitive the accomodations are - no water as yet except creek (fine for bathing but not drinking) and no toilet other than our pit latrine.  I have solar on the van so if you need to recharge electronics, that should be fine.  I will make sure we have plenty of fire wood for a good old campfire that night. We do have a nice little servo/grocery store that is pretty extensive for food/takeaway if you didn’t want to do a cookout and they’re a great little port of call for coffee and breaky in the morning. Becky, zack would love to have your son to hang out with. 

In terms of local accommodation, it is fairly limited.  There is the Theebine hotel which we love and we might want to do either dinner or lunch there.  I think from their website they have about 5 rooms.  I’ll have a look what else is available.  

Gympie has some gorgeous Sunday morning markets to check out and if weorganise it well, we could think about hitting greenharvest at Maleny on the way up to Glenwood on the Saturday (open every 3rd Saturday from 8 am to 12. ).  

It takes about 2hrs 15 min from my place in Wynnum  to get there sans traffic.

Hi Dianne and Susan,

After reading Andy's request, camping it for us might be a possibility and more freasible for us too if Paul is well enough and also if it is ok with Susan.

Bye for now,
