ABS Conference 2022 - Pre-Conference Field Trip (Mount Nebo)
The Conference Field Trip will take place on the evening of Saturday 9th April, which is the weekend before the conference commences rather than the usual end-of-conference field trip. We will provide return transport from Brisbane city for the evening (i.e. no overnight stay in the field), so you can just book an extra night at your chosen accommodation for the entire conference duration.
We will be batting in the beautiful D'Aguilar Range, right in Brisbane's back-yard, with a range of sub-tropical rainforest and sclerophyll forest types to survey. Our all-weather field trip base will be the Mt Nebo community hall, where participants will enjoy a fully catered dinner (BYO drinks) in between setting and clearing traps. You will be collected from a central meeting point in Brisbane in the early afternoon, with coaches returning down the mountain around midnight.
