Includes: 2 nights accommodation, meals Friday night, all day Saturday and breakfast and lunch Sunday, plus morning and afternoon teas and suppers. And, SURPRISES and GIFTS through the weekend!


  • Lyrebird Park is in Yellingbo which is located a 1:20 Hr from Melbourne (1 hr 10 from Bentleigh East and 51 minutes from Narre Warren South). The last 5km is firm but dirt road.
  • No kitchen duties are required (just scrape your plates and place on trays)
  • Carpeted bright Hall.

You will be told whether you have a single or double bed so you know what linen to bring. If you want to opt for the FULL BED LINEN HIRE this is an additional $33 per single bed set, $44 per double bed set and includes pillow, full linen set, doona, towel, bed making service, soap and shampoo.

What you need to bring: Your own bed linen & doona (or sleeping bag), pillow and towels. Toiletries. Comfortable clothes. Maybe a cushion for sitting on. Cropping supplies and photos! Bottle of wine to have with dinner?

Indulge yourself with a weekend of cropping. LYREBIRD PARK is the ideal venue for our weekend away. The bushland setting provides the perfect atmosphere for clear creative thinking and physical wellbeing. (Go for a bush walk if you can draw yourself away from your albums). Treat yourself and get your albums done!!

The Cabin sleeping accommodation is close to the cropping hall, (some rooms very close and others along a short path.) Each room has individual split systems. We have the SOLE USE of the WHOLE facility for the whole weekend.

CHEN LU, our host, will ensure our meals are hearty homestyle cooking. Please let me know of any special dietary requirements at time of booking. Ring me with any questions, and book it in your diary NOW! We will have lots of fun and good times – fresh air, new friends, creativity and LOTS of album pages done!!!

After you have completed the payment we will be back in touch with you closer to the event regarding Product Pre-ordering, your anticipated arrival time, and room sharing arrangements if you are part of a group.



The total cost is $290 for the weekend. You can pay $90 deposit to secure your place, or pay the full fee up front. A payment plan can also be arranged (Deposit then $50 in each of, Jan, Feb, March and April). Make the deposit and then email me to let me know to add you to the payment plan option. Otherwise I will email you a balance payment request at the end of February. (It is a little earlier this year to get things all tidied up).

There are no guarantees that places will still be available in March or April. It is strongly encouraged to formally reserve a place, or contact me directly if this is difficult for you for some reason.

NOTE:  About a month before the event, we will be sending you another "INVITE" to allow you the opportunity to view and purchase our PRE-order packs, as well as add any other items to your pre-order shopping list. Because this event is registered so far in advance, we have not included these at this stage.


We hope that you will go on and join us....
