Short trips away from Canberra are highlights of the annual activities calendar. Trips to the south coast - Pretty Beach, Merrimbula, and other nearby resort areas are popular choices, especially for those still limited by work commitments. Other slightly longer stays have been organised at Eden or north to the Hawkesbury, during holdiday periods or long weekends. The organiser will let members know about accommodation options, and how to make bookings and payment. Car pooling is usually an option that can be arranged between members. It is usual practice for passengers to make a contribution to the cost of travel.
