Butinga

Postby Kavieng » Sun Nov 25, 2007 11:33 pm

Comment from owner.

Council approval is sought so we can build an amenities block which will consist of full sewarage treatment plant. The hold up is getting a full flood report (not cheap) for the road & the 5 creek crossings so you city folks don't get caught up during storms. Nothing to do with the temporary toilet facilities.
The out house usually has a flushing portaloo sitting on top & not just a hole in the ground. It was removed when we had close temporarily due to complaints by the neighbour out front. It also sustained some damage during recent storms. It has been deliberately built with bush materials in keeping with the remote nature of the location.
We will be aiming towards people that want to get away to a remote location within 90 minutes of Brisbane or Gold Coast and a real bush setting, with amenities (when we eventually open). In keeping with the surrounding area, we intend to keep it as natural & undeveloped as possible, apart from toilet & showers.
It will NEVER be overcrowded, unlike Darlington Park (or anywhere else for that matter) if anyone's been there over Easter. We would only allow a maximum of 48 persons, by booking only .... and it's 421 acres, not 41. Fresh clean running creek (Left Hand Branch of Albert River) fed from 3 creeks including water from Moran Falls (O'Reillys). There are many waiting for the day we can officially open.
It will be for what real camping is all about not your average highly developed pristine establishment.
You are most welcome to contact us for any further info you may require to allay any speculation on what may or may not be.

looks a interesting place . The bush out house is a classic, You would think they could have built it a bit better than that . No wonder they are having trouble with council approval .

Is it available for camping now and if so, do you carry the necessary liability insurances.

Cheers

It might be worth waiting and see how they go with their approvals etc. Perhaps pencil it in for second half of the year.

I thought it may be worth going to Queen Mary Falls in April rather than June because the 870m above sea level might mean its a bit too cold for us cityfolks. :grin:

I would recommend Island Reach at Imbil over Borumba any day. It is prettier, cheaper and there is no fee charged for the family pooch.

...And please tell me about this 'approvals' that is mentioned. What is the procedure for the forum trips etc?? Cheers...

Can we put the discussions on possible venues for gathering here thanks so it doesn't get lost. http://forum.camping.com.au/viewtopic.php?t=2013

The approvals relate to Butinga getting Council approval for the development. Its sounds like they have preliminary approval subject to completion of a flood study.
