Update: Stargazing @ Dalby 1st Feb

Currently we are still planning on running the event tonight however I have been contacted by the Rangers at Dalby to say that have had a couple of inches of snow overnight with more expected this afternoon.

If the further snow cause the Rangers to decide to close the forest roads then we will have to cancel the event and we will update our website, facebook and twitter
