All Native Plants Queensland members and friends are invited to our Spring Gathering at The Barracks, QUT Samford Ecological Research Facility, which will be hosted by Samford Branch on Sunday 25 August from 9.00am.
This gathering is a little earlier in the year than usual because there are so many events in September!
The Barracks, QUT Samford Ecological Research Facility, 148 Camp Mountain Road, Camp Mountain QLD 4520 (UBD p. 106, L18).
Directions From Brisbane
Follow Samford Road from Ferny Grove station for 7 km almost to Samford village, but about 100 metres before the roundabout turn left into Camp Mountain Road (ignore the much earlier turn at the top of the range). Drive 1.4 km then turn right in to the QUT-signed property (just before the junction with Upper Camp Mountain Road). Follow the signs to the carpark and the Barracks. After the first 50 metres of bitumen, the road becomes unsealed, but is suitable for cars. Please drive slowly once you enter the property.
From Samford (if you are approaching from Mount Glorious or Mount Samson Roads)
Take the Samford Road exit from the roundabout (towards Brisbane), turn right in about 100 metres onto Camp Mountain Road and follow the directions above.
Warning: if using a GPS, you may be directed to the ‘old’ entrance to the property, which is located on Upper Camp Mountain Road. Ignore this: you are looking for the driveway entrance that is on Camp Mountain Road.
