Club President, Max Noble, had a vision to do more for the less privileged in our community. That vision led to Country Escape.

Country Escape commences again in February after a year of shut down due to COVID-19.

Due to Covid 19 restrictions, please book your place with the Country Escape coordinator as numbers are still required for Covid-19 spacing requirements. You MUST be booked in to attend. 

Bookings are ESSENTIAL due to COVID-19 limiting the number of attendees. These numbers may change from time to time as advised by the QLD State Government. 

To book, scroll down for the contact details and advise the number of perople attending - including carers and if attending 1st or 3rd Tuesday or both. Please renew your attendance request monthly while we are under Covid-19 restrictions for attendance. 

Although BRIGALOW always opens its doors to everyone, COUNTRY ESCAPE has been established as a social outing for those in our community who are less priviliged, their carers and friends. The popularity of these events has been so strong that, after more than ten years of operating on one Tuesday a month, the program was extended to two Tuesdays a month in 2016.

COUNTRY ESCAPE happens on the first and third Tuesdays of each month from February to November. All the volunteers have a break in January. In December, Santa visits on the second Tuesday.

The doors are open from 9:30am and clean-up begins at 1:00pm.

Entertainment with THE COUNTRY ESCAPE BAND begins a little after 10:00am and continues through till 1:00pm. Club members, and visitors from other clubs, also give of their time to sing with the band. 

Thanks to a number of regular Brigalow Country Escape Volunteers, morning tea is served, lunch is provided and a free raffle draw occurs at every event.

All of this is provided for an entry fee of $5.00 which goes towards the cost of the day.
