This is an annual event where Radio Amateurs meet at a spot on the coast between Rockhampton and Mackay to relax, talk radio, re-establish acquaintances and participate in the world renown Saturday Night Mega-Auction. There might even be some fox-hunting and there will definitely be RAFFLES !
The Gathering is one of the main revenue raisers for the Rockhampton and District Amateur Radio Club Inc and Mackay Amateur Radio Association.
It happens in 2018 from Friday arvo 4th May to Monday morn 7th May.
Those who are keen to chill out completely in one of the most relaxing and laid back venues in the cosmos arrive earlier and stay later.
