    Thank you everyone for being so patient. I looked at 4 parks in the area and this one ticked all of the boxes.



    The 2009 Bus Stop is to be held at Rainbow Beach Holiday Village -Bonny Hills. Good Friday is 10th April 2009. A booking has been made and I have told them to expect about 50 Kombis. They have a fantastic location, next to the beach with lots of family friendly facilities. One of the best things about this park is that it has a function room that they have agreed to let us have from the Saturday morning (it was already booked Friday night) until Monday night. The charge for this function room is being paid for by The Bus Stop as our major sponsor so a huge thanks to Roy for agreeing to pay for that. As we all know, a meeting place of a night is important for our trivia and awards and..... fancy dress!!! Slight change of plan - the park has informed me that the function room was booked Saturday night as well but they have organised for us to have the Surf Club for the Saturday night which is only a 5-10 minute walk from the park, fitting really that we have a Hawaiian night right on the beach!!!
    The caravan park's website is :
    http://www.holidayvillages.com.au/HVrainbow-beach/home/index.html

    Please call them and book your site or cabin as soon as possible. I have already booked mine and make sure you say you are from The Kombi Club so we can be put together. A powered site is $44 per night. The cabins vary in prices due to luxury or how many people they hold.


    I encourage everyone to stay the Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday nights and depart Tuesday - ESPECIALLY if you are coming from the South. The traffic at Hexam is awful on the Monday and you will defintely be better staying until the Tuesday morning.

    The park layout:

    One of the activities planned will be a MiniGolf tournament at the Caravan Park!!

    Of course we will be having the Pullback and Remote Control Grand Prix - handled by our resident race king - Alpal, so get those models revved and ready.

    We have had crazy hat night and mask night - 2009 is Hawaiian Night - so get the grass skirts, hawaiian shirts and leis out peoples - coconut bras optional!!!


    The contact number for the Park is : 1800 045 520 Toll Free

    We're in baby. :D

    Will be booking in for a full week so we can make sure it's a good break for the whole family.

    Special thanks should go to Melissa for all of her behind the scenes work to make this happen, and of course, to Roy for sponsoring the whole shebang.

    Firstly a MASSIVE thank-you to you Melissa for (once again!) laying all the hard work and foundations for another Bus Stop Event, and also to Roy as well for your sponsorship - I hope you can make it down for this one, mate.

    And count me in! I'm excited already. :D

    Everyone, the QLD/Northern NSW leg of the 2008 Bus Stop stayed at Bonny Hills for one of our scheduled stops, and it was a lovely lovely place. This will be a fantastic location for next year's event. I can't wait! :)

    Julian.

    I have a Garden Villa for a whole week! Yipee. Don't know what number it is, because it's not even built yet, so it'll be brand, spanking new for us.

    Arriving on the Thursday, so will miss out on the convoy down there, which is a bummer, but I'll cope by seeing all of you lovely people when you get there. :)
