Can you believe it is almost two years since Yabba Capricorn 2016 when our Rockhampton members hosted and organized a great weekend of activities?
This year our members in Warwick are the hosting the Yabba—renew friendships and explore the flora of the southern Darling Downs on the weekend of September 21-23, 2018.
Friday evening will be a social time with the opportunity to discuss items of interest and concern to branches.
Saturday evening enjoy the ‘Yabba Dinner’ followed by the biennial presentation of the Bill Tulloch Memorial Lecture to be given by Maria Hitchcock OAM on the subject “Saving our Rare and Threatened Flora”. As always this Yabba at Warwick will be a ‘very Aussie weekend’ so you can experience a wide range of local native plants, in several interesting native gardens as well as walks through local park and bushland areas along and west of the Great Dividing Range in the Warwick region.
We investigated the possibility of offering a special coach from Brisbane to and from Warwick for participants, but it was not economically viable. However several coach companies do offer transport at commercial rates which will be more realistic.
NPQ Warwick have suggested that you book accommodation immediately as this period coincides with Toowoomba’s Carnival of Flowers so it is a busy time. More details on this included in the registration form you can download below.
We would like to think that most SEQ members would be able to attend and hope that some members from other regions of Queensland may like to come south as well. Remember NPQ Council offers a subsidy to Branches north from Gladstone to encourage participation. Be sure you take this opportunity to ‘Yabba’ at Warwick!
