Re: Queensland Photo Shoot


emoticon Calling all Queensland X-Trail owners emoticon

O.K guys, with the absence of any real suggestions for locations (except for the one supplied by Scotty) for the Queensland Photo Session I have scouted around a number of places in and around Brisbane and have come up with a day trip that will give us plenty of opportunities for some great scenery photos.

I have put together a full itinerary for the day trip, including rendezvous points, times for the trip and points of interest that I believe will offer diversity and variety – see below.

As far as dates, I propose we hold the inaugural Queensland Photo Shoot on Sunday 19th November. If it is rainy and overcast and just generally a horrible day, then I suggest we can make the back up date Sunday 26th November.

Itinerary – Queensland Photo Shoot

Rendezvous point number 1 Shell service centre – Gateway motorway Nudgee

Top up with fuel, ice, munchies and drinks for the day if needed. Car wash available if needed.

Depart Shell Nudgee at 8.30 sharp.

Travel along gateway motorway, onto the Bruce highway and then onto Glasshouse mountains drive to next rendezvous point.

Rendezvous point number 2 Australia zoo

This is a chance for anyone who may wish, to pay respects to the Wildlife Warrior – Steve Irwin.

First photo shoot if possible in front of the zoo main gates, if not alongside the main road.
Photo shoot backdrop Zoo or bushland setting

Depart Australia Zoo at 10am sharp

Travel along Glasshouse mountains road, into Landsborough, on through to Maleny to next rendezvous point.

Rendezvous point number 3 Mary Cairncross park Image

This is a chance to stretch legs, toilet stop. Mary Cairncross Park offers a 2.1klm (easy) bushwalk where you will see some fantastic native flora and fauna such as the strangler fig and maybe an echidna, café and souvenirs. You may even get to see some unusual uses for snatch straps.

The brown patch is an echidna Image Strapping up old vines Image

We will stop here for an hour for a cleansing light ale (generously provided by the Australian Xtrail Forum Administrators, thanks Jalal) and allow anyone to do the bush walk if they want to.

Second photo shoot in and around the park.
Photo shoot Backdrop Glasshouse mountains or parkland setting

Depart Mary Cairncross Park at 11:30 sharp

Travel through Maleny, onto Reesville road and up to Howell Knob Lookout.

Main photo shoot
Photo shoot backdrop Glasshouse Mountains (south) and Sunshine Coast (north)

Depart Howell Knob Lookout 12:30 – 12:45 (flexible)

Travel to Maleny for lunch break. Free time for lunch and tourist activities. Maleny pub offers great meals (barramundi and chips are fantastic) Here is a view of their deck.

Image

Maleny bakery makes great pies, there’s a park in town for anyone who wants a picnic and a whole variety of stores to check out.

Rendezvous point number 4 Tesch Park, Coral St Maleny

Depart Tesch Park at 2pm sharp

Travel along Teale Street to Lake Baroon

ImageImage

Lake Baroon has picnic areas, swimming, boat hire and a kiosk. We can finish the beers provided (appoint a designated driver if needed), emoticon have a swim, an ice cream, get out on the lake in a boat or paddle bike and enjoy the sunshine.

Last photo shoot of the day
Photo shoot backdrop Lake Baroon – water setting

Depart Lake Baroon whenever you want. For those interested, Maleny Mountain Winery (The big barrel) is about 2 km after Mary Cairncross Park on the way back.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Please register your interest for this fantastic day out by adding your name to the list below and cut and paste into a new post.

Please specify what rendezvous point you will join us as we will leave on time where possible but we don’t want to leave you stranded, if we know you are coming, we will wait.

Looking forward to a fantastic day

OH OH! I cant believe you would pass up the chance to grab an EPA forestry permit and have some fun while your in the glass house mountains area! emoticon Always pray for some rain a few days before and you can come out looking like a chocolate covered surprise too!

I'd like to come, xtrail isnt delivered yet but im expecting 3 weeks approx so it might be a good first outing. I work shift work which includes weekends so i will need to see if im rostered before i put my hand up. Im at Ipswich by the way too.

Keith
ps. i was only semi joking about the forestry trails, they are really fun!

Re: Queensland Photo Shoot


Hello All,
It has been a while since I have posted.

Sundays are busy days for me. I might be able to swing by the Shell in the morning to say hi and wish you all well.

I will have to check my calendar.

Jamie,
Thanks for organising this.

Regards
