Xmas in July

Another fantastic Xmas in July in the Watagans. Here are some photos from the festivities.

Our inaugural “long table”dinner

Our Dungog property was the venue for our first “long table” dinner recently.   Participants were asked to wear their best formal dinner attire and share a main course or dessert.  The table was decorated with fairy lights and gold candles. The results were just gorgeous and a great evening was had by all.



Another great Xmas in July

Our annual Xmas in July in the Watagans was a lot of fun, with club members enjoying some trips of varying difficulty and activities for young and old – including a “Treasure Hunt with a twist” Damper making, s’mores making and dress up competitions.



Annual Camp Quality Family Fun Day

Our club participated in the Annual Camp Quality fun day at Stockton Beach again this year. This day out gives sick kids a chance to have a ride in a four wheel drive over the sand dunes, do some “dune surfing” and enjoy the sunshine. This year, some of our members club took on sausage sizzling duties, while others provided rides for the kids.


Fun in the Victorian High Country

A group of 9 vehicles enjoyed a great trip to the Victorian High Country over the new year.

The trip started in the east of the high country, climbing Mt Pinibar, Mt Gibbo and Mt Anderson, then heading gradually west and south through Omeo, Dargo, Collins Flat, Talbotville and the stunning Wonnangatta Valley.

Then onto the high mountains around King Billy, Bluff Hut, Craigs Hut and finally – Lake Cobbler.

The tracks were challenging, the weather was perfect, the rivers were cool and inviting and the scenery was magnificent – making for a great trip for adults and kids alike.



Santa drops by in a Firetruck

Our Annual Christmas party was another great success – with record numbers attending the event  n perfect weather. Our wonderful Social Co-Ordinator, Jo Kelly provided a host of entertainment options for all ages and, along with her helpers, created a magnificent feast for all.

The Traditional Flying Fox and the waterslide were as popular as ever.

Santa arrived on a firetruck, courtesy of the Dungog Rural Fire Service to the delight of the kids, who received some very exciting and interesting presents.

We were also pleased to welcome a group of Dungog Rural Fire Service volunteers for dinner.
