Open to all (children under 12 must be accompanied by a responsible adult).

Entry: $20, which includes a hot drink and a cake or savoury product at the Two Catherines Café. (Profits go to the RFS.)

Limited to 20 participants. To register your interest and to find out more, email editor@scotlandisland.org.au. Please provide the names and ages of those interested in participating.

Accommodation wanted: approx July / August 2021

Elvina Bay, Lovett Bay or Scotland Island

We are also interested in a longer-term rental at the end of 2021.

Ideally a studio or cottage or boathouse with bathroom. Preferably on or close to the water. 

We are an active retired couple with no pets. We have rented on the island before and are dying to get back there. No wild parties, sadly. We own our home on the south coast but need a year or so of ‘escape’. My husband can handle boats. We are happy to pay in advance.

Please tel Robyn 0435758776 or Phil 0414604748.
