I have recently made the trip to Crows Nest and stayed at the Crows Nest Tourist and Caravan Park. We (Lonai and I) stayed in one of the onsite cabins and found the accommodation to be neat, tidy, quite cozy and suitable. There are a number of small (one double bed) cabins and a couple of multiple sleeper cabins. All come with ensuite, bed linen, towels, tea/coffee & milk and limited cooking facilities. More info available at: https://www.crowsnestcaravanpark.com.au
There is an on-site restaurant that will do a buffet but also has al a carte meals. They can do Buffet meals for $25 or $30 / head. The restaurant is BYO. There is also a Club House and we can use this facility (free). There is a swimming pool on site and the restaurant will do breakfast for us.
I have spoken with the owner/manager (Gerald) and he has agreed to give us a 10% discount on advertised prices. He asks that you call him direct (on 0413 356 464) to book and at the time to advise that you are travelling with the Gold Coast Cruiser Club.
If numbers are larger than accommodation available, there is also the option of staying at the Crows Nest Motel (directly across the road from the Caravan Park) – accommodation there is $130/night (I think).
My suggestion is that you first decide whether you want a small cabin (double bed) or a larger cabin to share and then call Gerald to book. Closer to the date (first week of Feb) If anyone is interested in the buffet please let me know but I do believe that the have a minimum numbers requirement. Also, I will need to know who wants to take advantage of a breakfast booking.
As for the ride there – we will be leaving at 9am sharp and head through to Esk and Blackbutt (Lunch stop). When we arrive at Crows Nest, we will head straight to Cellarbrations so people can get their own supplies. The return trip will be Allora/Aratula/Beaudesert/Home.
Most importantly though, Crows Nest National Park and waterfall is only a short distance away from this venue so I am sure that Ross Tanner will be only too happy to lead a group of intrepid adventurers there…that location holds a very special place in Ross’ heart – just ask him!
Please note that, for those unable to make the overnighter, there will be a day-ride to Blackbutt for lunch and then return. Paul Jacobs will lead the return run.
