The Peel Island mini camp will be held from Monday 17 June and return Thursday 20 June  (3 nights)

Coordinator is Richard Sharpe.

Distance 9.5km across to our campsite on Peel Island.

Being outside of school holidays and midweek we should have the place to ourselves.

Leave from Masthead Drive, Raby Bay on 17 June and set up camp.  Short paddle in afternoon.

Be ready to  leave at 10am on the water at Masthead Drive.  For those travelling from the Sunny Coast plan to be there by 8.45 allowing a bit over an hour to pack the boats with camping gear and get them down to the beach.  Make sure you bring your kayak trolley for the 100m walk down to the water.  Trolley will then be returned to car.

(The wheels that sit on the back of the boat are UNSUITABLE for wheeling a laden boat down to the water)

You will need to bring sufficient water and food for your 3 night stay.

The launch place at Masthead Drive is next to a park fronting the water. It has plenty of parking bays on one side and houses on the other.  I have camped many times on Peel and always left the cars there without any issues.

Potential paddles depending on weather conditions.
