Invest in the future with Barney Bonds

Tuesday, December 10, 2019


Bonds n. - a lending agreement between a borrower and a lender. Next to cash, some bonds are the safest, most liquid investments on the planet.

Many people have been asking us “how can we help?” after our bushfire experience in October/November 2019.

There is no doubt that the fires were scary, but Mt Barney Lodge was spared, thanks to some very effective back burning by the Rural Firies that came within 100m of us. The unexpected and real threat to our business now is the fact that our phones have gone silent and bookings have all but ceased.

We attribute this to people being unsure about whether it is safe to visit, and uncertainty about access to the National Park.

We understand your hesitation.

Please be assured that it is safe to stay at Mt Barney Lodge once again – we are ready for you!!

We still have access to Mt Gilles and we will be conducting our beginner rock climbing session each Saturday at 7am in December.

What we can’t guarantee yet is any estimation of exactly when access will be given by Qld Parks and Wildlife Service on the expected opening date of Mt Barney. We’ll keep you posted.

We think that the best way Mt Barney Lodge can be helped by you in the immediate future is your confidence that we still have an outstanding product on offer, and bringing forwards your intent to stay at Mt Barney Lodge in the future to right now.

For that reason we are inviting all of you to invest in the future of Mt Barney Lodge, through the purchase of Barney Bonds in the month of December.

Barney Bonds are redeemable for use anytime in the next 12 months towards any adventure or accommodation purchase.

They are available for any amount, with the minimum value being$100.

While they are not redeemable for cash, you can use them towards any expense at Mt Barney Lodge, give to friends, or create a gift voucher to the same value.

See all t's and c's here.

So if you know you come to Mt Barney Lodge each year, then please consider purchasing part or the full amount of your stay with Barney Bonds now. The Bonds can even be converted to a gift for Christmas – they are a great looking item that can be personalised, or we can create a specific gift voucher/s from the bond any time after purchase as well.

By bringing payment of your future holiday plans forwards to December, you will really help us through this difficult post-fire period.

Call 55443233 or email now to arrange your Barney Bond.

with thanks

Innes and Tracey
