Our group of 26 (including 16 kids) filled the Dales to capacity on a recent weekend getaway - and we loved every second of it! From hilarious chats around the roaring fire to a delicious shared lamb roast dinner, it's fair to say that memories were made that will be hard to forget.
Whether they identify as members of the Mareeba Mountain Goats Mtb Club (Queensland), or mostly just as a bunch of mates from school days, these guys have been making time for annual biking getaways for years. This year it was our privilege to host them.
Five families, gaggles of kids from 5 to 17, the Dales now feels like a regular shack as we pull into the driveway and everyone slides seamlessly into a rhythm, picking up from where we left off last trip. It’s just like coming home.
