A central location would make it very attractive to more swaggers. HOWEVER

It will be determined in the end, if someone wants to put their hand up and run it.
You can suggest places until ya blue in the face, but unless ya prepared to do it..... it doesn't matter a rat's arse.

We should familiarise ourselves with the requirements before suggesting locations.

Just a waste, otherwise....

How about West Kunderang
(near Armidale NSW).

www.westkunderang.com.au

Privately owned
Lots of space
Has a sort of "hidden valley" feel about it...
Wild, wilderness feeling..
Fishing, canoeing, 4wd tracks
Toilets, but no showers..
Off grid, but generator ok?
No mobile phone coverage,
But satellite phone on site.

Just a suggestion?

Cheers

Might just need to give this a really good look once I get back from the Kimberly for the 2017 Pradopoint GTG.

I am sure there would be a few from Tasmania on here who could get together and see what we have to offer here.

In 2015 the FJ forum and Pradopoint both had their gathering here so it can be done without a problem.

Remember many myswaggers will want power option. We didn't at Mansfield but on reflection running a heater would have been more comfortable.

Power is a requirement for the venue, as are showers and a sheltered communal area....

No worries - needing power; showers;  communal shelter understandable  ... even though the alternative would have been an adventure   ...
