outings and Activities 

Recent activities

 

Once a month an outing of some kind is arranged by

our very active Tours and Outings Team.

 

The outings are either half day visits or full day tours

or bus trips, and are varied in nature to cover as many 

interests as possible. Our outings are held on different

days of the week so as not to exclude members who

have commitments on particular days of the week.

Some trips we have enjoyed recently include a guided 

walking tour of New Farm, Queensland Brain Institute

at the University of Queensland, the Port of Brisbane,

a heritage tour of Ipswich, a trip to the Redcliffe

Peninsula, QIMR Berghofer Medical Research

Institute, the Museum of Brisbane, a boat trip to the

Gold Coast, the Beenleigh Rum Distillery and the

Scenic Rim. 

                                                                               

 

                                                                                 From time to time there is the opportunity to participate in                                                                                     longer trips. Members have enjoyed long weekends at                                                                                           Stanthorpe and at Warwick, for the Jumpers and Jazz                                                                                           festival. In addition, week long trips have been arranged to                                                                                   Norfolk Island and to the Longreach area. Other similar                                                                                         trips are planned for the future.

SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS

We have a number of special interest groups which meet regularly.

The Jewellery & Crafts group meets monthly and welcomes people with an      interest in all hand crafts.

The Camera Club meets every couple of months.

Annual photographic competitions are organised.

A Mahjong Group meets regularly to hone their skills and

to enjoy some relaxation with friends.

We have some keen bush walkers who tackle a different track every month,

always finishing with a coffee and chat.

Our monthly meetings are followed by lunch at a nearby

cafe or restaurant. Dining out options are offered

during the year, as well as Christmas in July and a festive

Christmas lunch in December.

The Theatre and the Arts group meets from time to time to view special events and to attend plays.

A well-stocked Book Exchange provides a variety of books, CD's and DVD's for the enjoyment of members.

Our Coffee and Chat group is for members who want a gentle walk in air conditioned comfort, or for those who do not want to walk but do want to meet fellow members for a coffee and chat.  

 

Members with an interest in a particular field are welcome to form new interest groups. Assistance is given in the organisation of new groups.
