Anticipated activities include visiting the usual spots for swims and walks, including Point Lookout, Amity Point, Keyholes, Cylinder Beach, Brown Lake and Blue Lake.

The camping fees have strict cancellation policies so you may forfeit the fees should the weather turn poor and we need to cancel. This is outside of our control so please read the camping policy and ensure that you are comfortable with this before joining this trip.

Meeting Place and Time: 8:30am at Hungry Jacks Beaudesert 155-161 Brisbane St, Beaudesert QLD 4285
Payment method: To be direct deposited to the venue prior to attendance.
Trip Details: Scenic Rim Adventure Park is a great place to test the limits of your stock or slightly modified Jeep and improve your 4WDing skills. The park has a large number of bush tracks with enough variety for everyone. The main tracks are suitable for stock Jeeps in good weather, while other tracks range from rocky creek beds to rutted hill climbs and descents. Obviously, if wet weather is involved it increases the difficulty of all tracks. Throughout the property you will find challenging terrain for all levels of driver experience and vehicles capabilities.
