Hi Guys,
Will have to be brief as I'm at work at the moment, but should be able to help 
out, We live just outside Brisbane (Samsonvale) and can probably help you with 
sites at Mt Glorious, Inskip Pt etc. Just contact us near the time, we have a 
caravan accomodation for use for a couple of nights if required.
