Customer Appreciation Weekend #10 – Hold-It-Flats, Cathu National Park, 30th July-1st August
If you haven’t visited Hold it flats before, then you must come along. It is a great spot and we’re sure this will be added to your list of favourite camp sites in our region. It is situated by the O’Connell River and there is a nice little swimming hole to take a dip (if you are brave enough to jump in the cold water!). We will be staying at the trackside camp site which is on your left as you arrive. Access to the camp grounds is easy so any caravan and camper trailer can come along. The address is 4 Cathu Oconnell River Rd, Yalboroo, QLD 4741.
If you purchased a van from us and still own that van then you’re invited!
Here’s the plan:
Two-night stay, Friday and Saturday. Of course you are welcome to extend your stay either side of our event so you will have to book this on the Hipcamp site and book your extra days yourself. Please choose the trackside camping.
On Friday night there will be a casual meet and greet but due to Covid restrictions we won’t be having any share platters.
On Saturday we are planning a massive camp oven cook-up with beef and pulled pork burgers and roast veges for dinner. We ask guests to bring their own dinner plates along.
Sunday morning breakfast will be provided – bacon and egg burgers (as always 😀)
We will be driving up to the famous Cathu look-out on Saturday afternoon but note this is 4×4 access only. If you don’t have a suitable vehicle you will have the opportunity to carpool with other guests who have spare seats. The views are breathtaking so it is well worth the trip. For those who are more adventurous, the infinity pool is a challenging drive (approximately 2 hours each way) so we only recommend this for experienced drivers with adequate offroad vehicles.
The host Katie-Ann can provide a milk crate full of firewood for $10 (please bring cash) and there are fire pits available on site if you wish to soak in the atmosphere with a campfire at your camp at night.
A couple more things about Hold it flats:
- There are hot showers and flush toilets on site
- There is no mains power (you really won’t need it in July) and no drinking water so make sure you fill up your tanks and charge your batteries.
- It is pet friendly (must be on a leash)
- You have to take your own rubbish away
- 10c recyclable cans and bottles can be left onsite in the bins provided.
- Bring a torch (shower and toilets lights may be turned off to conserve battery power for the showers)
- There is no toilet dump point
The camp fees for the Friday and Saturday nights are at a flat rate of $9/person/night. Kids under 8 years stay for free. Jayco Mackay is managing the group booking so you will need to book with us direct on 49421292. Please speak to the girls in admin who can take your camping fees over the phone (credit card preferable). We’ll then email you a receipt and booking confirmation.
We’re looking forward to catching up with you all once again.
From the Camilleri’s and the team at Jayco Mackay.
