Hey all , I've been toying with the idea of leasing out a small block on the Turon River to people that do not want to not have to fight for space on the public reserves on public holidays . It is a river front block with good swimming holes , gold fossicking and at times fishing . Numerous day trips to some great areas are all around , Hillend , Sofala , Bridle Track , UpperTuron National Park , Dunns Swamp and Wollemi National park , Ophir , Rhylestone weir , Capertee Valley , Glow worm tunnels , Newns etc the list goes on . It is about 20 acres and would suit clubs , groups or singles . There is plenty of flat ground for camps , trailers or vans .I was thinking about $10 per night per vehicle with a minimum charge of $50 per night . Most clubs have their own insurance which makes me think that this would be the way to go and if they have a group of 5 or more vehicles it is relativley cheap at $10 per vehicle .
What do you think ?

Gid'ay ken
i think its a great idea,what i would be watching out for is the rat bag element crapping any where &every where this would turn people off,perhaps a deposit,refunded after site inspection.

People are hard.

They mean the best BUT sometimes just don't give a toss.

A bit of plastic here and a dropped can there, can really take from your love of YOUR land.

Start letting it out to people you know first and go from there.

It can get difficult dealing with people.

Good idea. Good luck.

Spent yrs growing up on the bank of the Turon in Sofala.. wat a sweet place it used to be (just over the bridge and on the left)..

I think you should look into the insurance thing a bit more, all the 4wd parks in Qld have their own "cover your arse" insurance and that includes "club events only" weekends.

yep the clubs insurance will pay up ----------- then start looking to get its money back. Like the guy that runs into you, your insurance gives you the money that it got off of his insurance, if he is not insured they get it anyway. And you can get sued for anything now (or at least they try) parents were suing managers of a campground coz a branch fell down and killed their kid. Try avoiding accidents like that!!!!!

Ken S

Don't even think about doing this without insurance. Like it was mentioned before. Their insurance company will come after YOU to get their money back. A broken arm is typically a $60 000 payout and about $30 000 in lawyer's fees.

If there is an accident and it goes to court, whether it's your fault or not, you will still have to find money for your lawyers, and as most of these are settled "out of court", so you'll be up for at least your lawyers payment (ie new car).

Sometimes the best insurance is not to have insurance, but that's only if you haven't got any assets. So, perhaps you can start up a $1 company that leases the land of you and runs the "camping ground". I'm sure somebody on this forum would know if that is possible.

Cheers

Offer some law firm 90% of the takings as a retainer.
