    Hey Dave
    Shelley mentioned that at the hotel she worked at if other hotels were full or if they hit a certain capacity (around 80%) they charged more and/or closer to an event they charged more - I booked months ago like Aime so that could be the reason if you have only recently booked - unless anyone else booked recently and paid the same as us?....

    Also not sure if you did this Aime but I booked for 2 kombis and I'm not sure if I metioned how many people were in the kombi - maybe you were charged extra personchild tariff?

    OK. Rang the holiday park and it seems I've paid a $70 deposit with a further $105 yet to pay. This is for 5 nights, one Kombi and two people. That equates to $35 a night.

    Sorry Necro, but I'm not a 'phone person' and so didn't think to ask why some were being charged more. Probably a late entry charge or something?

    I suggest you ring the park and tell them you're with he Kombi Club and are a bit put out that you're being charged an extra $13 and maybe they'll come to the party.

    I'm sure you'll have more takers than just you Kai. Some people travelled much further than that to get to Narooma, so you should have plenty of company ;)

    And don't forget........half the fun is getting there :lol:

    Don't forget to drop in at Lake Boga and check out the Catalina flying boat museum. I believe it's well worth a visit.

    Thanks for the Birthday wishes xerxes ;)

    Kai / Nath - Ill join you on the highway on your way past - you will need fuel by the time you get here ;)
    Fuel in town is about 10c/litre cheaper than at the servo near maccas.

    Hey Bernie, that cafe/coffee shop on the corner in town has good coffee. ( Pretty dodgy directions I know, but.....) I can't remember the name of it ,but I think its an old renovated bakery or butcher shop (?) just near the pub/club. We usually stop there for a java & a bite to eat when in Goulburn. Keep us posted on the meet time. There's a good chance you may have another bus in your convoy :D Cheers, Mark
