Fraser Island Clean Up FICU 10-13 May 2019
Time to plug this in our timeline for 2019 for outings

Be aware there will be a time early in 2019 to commit to being on the Island so stay tuned for further information
you will need to pay up front admin for your intention to go and you get a sticker
and then barge fees are usually payable on the ferry itself with your FICU sticker

Camping is usually planned for our club to one site

Not sure if we can nominate for particular work but we all enjoyed winching out lantana last time

Can only ask

We can always stay later than Monday and cruise the Island's  interesting features and abandoned sites

Traditional Owners – Butchulla People

Culture and History

The Island has a rich and ancient indigenous history. The Butchulla People referred to the Island as K’gari which means paradise. Archaeologists believe that Fraser Island supported up to 3000 people who lived on marine animals and terrestrial plants.

Evidence of Butchulla settlement in archaeological sites, midden heaps, ceremonial bora rings, fish traps, scarred trees, campsites and stone implements date back to between 1500 and 2500 years ago. However the Butchulla People are thought to have lived on Fraser Island for more than 5000 years.

There are many sites of social and spiritual significance. It is very important to respect those sites. European settlement had a devastating impact on the indigenous population.

Although a few descendants continue to live on the Fraser Island their cultural heritage and ability to maintain their traditional practices have considerably diminished. Native Title was granted in 2014 which recognised the Island’s indigenous heritage and native owners the Butchulla People.

The Butchulla call the island K’gari or paradise after a creation spirit who was unable to leave the beauty of the area. There are three principles in Butchulla lore:

  1.    What is good for the land comes first
  2.    Do not touch or take anything that does not belong to you
  3.    If you have plenty you must share

Fraser Cleanup

Hey Les as it appears that you are the leader

Go into the Rego site and you can request your favourite camp spot and mention that the RC boys love doing landana removal

Registered but cannot attend - will cancel at the last minute to hold it open.

Okay after much discussion at January's Club Meeting about what is included in the now $10 registration fee I looked up the website to clarify the confusion

the Fraser Island costs are $10 Registration fee and another $10 for Thankyou dinner which you have to purchase in the shop once you are registered for the FICU website

Payment of the registration will get you a spot on the island for the clean-up  Cool

As the shock of paying for your dinner was voiced this meeting  Angry it will again be discussed at next club meeting in February as a club whether we go or make up individual minds

Ngkala Rocks video just made 7 April

Lots more rocks on show and have to use bypass tracks as no low tide access
and further rocks north have been exposed
prediction is Sandy Cape is possible at low tide to mid tide both ways but you gotta time it right

They have other Fraser Island videos too if you wanna know

General beach access

Inskip Point has significantly less sand too

Plenty of videos to watch just click on the CrayonBox Flying Adventures name and it will take you to a list of them
happy watching
