ExplorOz National Members' Gathering 2014
||The ExplorOz National Members' Gathering 2014 will be held at Trilby Station located on the Darling River Run from the 28th of September to the 4th of October. This is just 6 months away, so it's time to start planning!|
The first step is to register your interest on the Gathering Page. Then make your booking for accommodation at Trilby Station, there are a range of options to suit your set-up, and make sure you mention your member number when booking.
Not only will you ensure that you don't miss out on a place at the Gathering, this helps to plan activities (and prizes and giveaways!) to suit the number of attendees well in advance.

you're contemplating this rather unconventional family adventure.
