Easter Wrap Up 2018

Monday, April 16, 2018

The Easter bunny has come and gone in the blink of an eye, but what a wonderful Easter holiday was had here at Mt Barney Lodge.

The beautiful, warm and sunny weather was definitely a pleasant and welcomed surprised compared to last year’s floods, and the campgrounds were filled again with many familiar faces.


Activities over the weekend included a Full Moon on Maroon hike on Saturday as well as the annual Eco Boat Race on Sunday afternoon. More than 100 people lined the banks on the Logan River to support the many unique hand crafted entries in the race this year.

Little Sophie from the Nunn family booking took out first prize for the fastest Eco Boat, winning her family a complimentary weekend’s stay at Mt Barney Lodge. She constructed her boat using sticks and two different types of grass twine. Congratulations to all place holders and participants – what a fabulous Eco Boat Race it was.


Continuing on the celebrations from the boat race, we were lucky enough to be joined once again by Desley and Pietro who made guests delicious, homemade pizzas. We are looking forward to spending 2019 Easter Sunday relaxing by the creek with good company!
