NSW mid-north coast tour

We have appointed Pegasus Coach Tours to undertake an 8-day tour of the NSW mid-north coast for the Friends RBGC in spring 2013. We will need at least 30 participants for this tour to eventuate.

Tuesday 27 August –Tuesday 3 September 2013

The Iitinerary

The itinerary includes visits to botanic gardens, wetlands, bush areas including national parks with marvellous plants, wonderful coastal areas, mountains and waterfalls, an Australian orchid spectacular and much more.

Janet Watson, who lives in Port Macquarie and has many local contacts, knows the region well and we are very pleased to have her assisting in the tour. Janet worked as a Ranger at RBG Cranbourne and for a time was Secretary of the Friends of RBGC.

The tour will depart from Newcastle on the morning of Tuesday 27 August and end in Coffs Harbour on Tuesday 3 September. Participants will be required to organise their own transport to Newcastle (to arrive by the evening of Monday 26 August, ready for pick-up early next day) and from Coffs Harbour (departure from mid-afternoon of Tuesday 3 September).


The cost of the tour is $1400 per person (twin share). The price covers all accommodation (3–4 star motels), transport and most meals, and includes a fundraising levy of $230 (with at least $200 used for projects at RBG Cranbourne and the balance used for tour planning and operational costs incurred by Friends RBGC). 


An itinerary (which is subject to change) and Tour Booking Form are available by contacting Rodger Elliot rgelliot@optusnet.com.au. The Tour Booking Form accompanied by a $100 deposit must be lodged with Pegasus Coach Tours by 30 April 2013.
