Thumbs up Treg Muster - 2019

Hi All Treg Musterteers!

It is with much sadness that I wasn't able to attend the 2018 Muster, which from posts, was a very enjoyable and interesting event covering visually stunning, great and varied terrain.

I'm sure it was a topic that reared it's head at some stage amongst the 2018 gathering - where to in 2019?

So starting this thread for input on the 2019 location.

Nothing like striking while the iron's hot .....

There's been Out Back NSW, Alpine region NSW, Flinders Ranges SA, Sunshine Coast (if thats a generally appropriate description) QLD that I can think of. Any where I've missed? I know there's been more "meets"......

While OZ is a big place and most states will have a variety of environments within their boundaries, is one of the objectives / considerations of the Treg Muster to include attending each State and Territory so some of the Treg owner's inhabiting that State or Territory, showcase to visiting Tregsters what's in their backyard?

Or is it better that a region be chosen, even if somewhere within that State or Territory has already been a destination before, then "Tour Guides" volunteer or are nominated to organise?

Each year for a Muster there are fellow Tregsters who, for child care necessities err towards a Muster within school holiday time frames and there are those who have done that "obligation" where it's not a factor for consideration. How to resolve?

Thoughts ......

I think this year worked out as you described, A few locals who got to organise and show case some of the great locations in their region. In general I think with a typical Muster of 4 to 5 days that some form of organised drives ect works great.

It also may depend on location as to best numbers, as I think the 20 in Flinders Ranges worked well and with around 12 on latest one was a good number for the type of drives we did.
Being selfish , the East Coast is obviously easier for me and maybe also for those that still work and may only get 2 weeks leave ect . Who reside in Qld, NSW and ACT.


I would absolutely love to do one in WA, but with a maximum of 2 weeks leave would be very difficult for us.


But open to all suggestions and location for a 2019 Muster.

Tasssiiieeeee, sounds great. We tossed up about going there this year (about now) as we could not get to Muster 2018. Maureen priced van and car between $800 and $900 each way. Very limited time frames as well due to prior bookings. We would probably need to set dates well in advance. Perhaps many might choose not to take vans and stay in a suitable accommodation provider instead. Easy to get around too, plenty to see and do.

I just had a quick look at 'Discover Tasmania' website. This was the first prospect that I looked at. Burnie Ocean View Motel and Holiday Caravan Park has a large variety of accommodation ranging from motel units and suites, cabins and van sites. Plenty of the types of facilities which we tend to like on site and closeby. Situated in the north east corner, approx 30 minute drive from Devonport where ferry disgorges its load. There would be plenty of other options around the island as well. Something to consider. Access to 'Spirit of Tassie' may have to be a consideration when nominating a time frame.

Sounds like a good idea. Would need to decide early and would limit people to change of plans ect due to Boat and cost of bookings. Would have to try for an extended leave to do this one.

Treg Muster - 2019

I got confused between North West and North East Tassie, so I googled Map of Tassie..... I need another drink 🤣

Seriously though, not a bad idea. We took our Van over in 2015 and it wasn’t cheap on the ferry. Spent 3 weeks and could easily have made it 3 months. We went in early December and it seemed a pretty good time of the year. I think the idea of staying in Cabins / Motels has merit as that would be a lot cheaper on the Ferry only having to take the Treg across.

One thing that did strike us taking the Van across is that the bookings do need to be made a long way in advance. When we were in the Devonport Caravan Park the night before we boarded the ferry to head home we heard of a couple who had to fly up to Brisbane at short notice for a funeral and when they got back to Devonport, the next spot on the ferry for their Van was in a couple of months time.

I think Tassie is one destination many of us would perhaps not seriously consider taking our Treg’s across to. Perhaps a Treg Muster in the Apple Isle is well overdue?
