18 Nov QCCC expands to cope with schools demand
Queensland Conference and Camping Centres has finalised expansions at two of its facilities. QCCC Mapleton and QCCC Tamborine have both increased their capacity by a further 50 beds, and each site can now accommodate 300 guests at a time.
The expansion at QCCC Mapleton is particularly welcome as it is currently fully booked during school terms and turns away numerous groups seeking to access its innovative outdoor education programs. The expansion provides the opportunity for QCCC Mapleton to cater to two extra school groups each week of the academic year. It can also cater to larger conferences and events on the weekends.
QCCC Mapleton introduces the “Acacia Complex”. Acacia Room A is an air-conditioned dormitory sleeping 32 guests, next to a large ablution block and not far away from the Mapleton swimming pool complex. Acacia Rooms B-D are converted ensuite cabins, sleeping 10 people each, in air-conditioned comfort.
QCCC Mapleton are now taking bookings for the Acacia Complex for 2012.
At QCCC Tamborine the newly renovated “Pioneers” complex has added an additional 48 beds. This is a stand-alone campsite consisting of 16 rooms with only three people per room. This site is ideal for smaller schools and adult groups on the weekend will appreciate the low number of sleepers to each room.
Pioneers is next to a new high ropes facility at QCCC Tamborine. The activities area includes glider possum, leap of faith, ghost gum challenge, wobbly ladder, crate climb as well as a strong list of non-rope related activities such as archery, orienteering, team initiatives, climbing wall and an inflatable obstacle course. Activities are provided in partnership with Vertec Adventure.
QCCC are taking bookings for both new complexes. Go to www.qccc.com.au for more details.
