The Proposed Shire of Radburne is planning a Casual Camping Weekend in August. The site will open at 3pm on Friday 10 August and close at appoximately 1pm on Sunday 12 August.
For those of you unfamiliar with Dubbo's location (we have the Western Plains Zoo), we are approximately 400km west of Sydney, approximately 362km west of Newcastle and approximately 450km north of Canberra.
There will be a Soup Kitchen on the Friday evening and a Simple Camp Feast on the Saturday evening included in the price (to keep costs down campers will need to bring food for the rest of the time - we can provide a supply run to town on Saturday if needed. BYO alcohol).

Drop your heavy burdens and travel to Logan, Utah to celebrate with the Shire of Côte du Ciel as we observe the feast day of our venerable and flammable patron, Saint Pyre. A source of warmth and light to those around him during his lifetime, and especially at the end of it, Saint Pyre's feast day is celebrated with mirth, merriment, and a distinct lack of seriousness.
The day's activities will include a heavy tournament, the traditional carrot-nosed melee, in which one lives only so long as one's carrot remains intact, a jovial round of light-hearted rapier activities, an A&S competition, and dancing.
