How To Find Our Club

Finding our club is fairly easy, if you just follow a few simple steps.

These images posted here, should make things a lot easier for you to find us.

If you are heading north from Gold Coast City, or south from the state capital of Brisbane on the M1 PACIFIC MOTORWAY .. TAKE EXIT 49 AT PIMPAMA.

This is a double round-a-bout. So just TAKE YOUR TIME to look for the following signs ..

The BLUE DISPLAY VILLAGE SIGN points to the direction of our clubhouse.

So head on down that road (Rifle Range Road South) for ABOUT ONE (1) KILOMETRE, and you will see the MAIN ENTRANCE TO HERITAGE PARK on the RIGHT HAND SIDE of the road.

TURN INTO HERITAGE PARK and follow the road round to the right for ABOUT 1/2 KILOMETRE, and you will see our FIRE ENGINE RED COLOURED CLUBHOUSE.


You have found us.

Australian Country Great - Reg Lindsay Dies

AUSTRALIAN country music veteran Reg Lindsay has died, aged 79.

He passed away at a Newcastle hospital this afternoon after a battle with pneumonia, the Nine Network reported.

Lindsay won three Golden Guitars and wrote more than 500 songs during his long career that also included two long-running television shows - The Reg Lindsay Country Hour and Reg Lindsay Country Homestead.

He also experienced some success in the United States and was the first Australian to be officially recognised with a plaque on Nashville's Walkway of Stars.

Lindsay suffered a cerebral haemorrhage at the Tamworth Country Music Festival in 1994.

After a long rehabilitation period, he then suffered a heart attack and underwent a triple bypass.

One of the songs he is best remembered for is Armstrong, which was his tribute to the American astronauts and their historic moon landing and was his first big hit on the pop charts in 1971.

How To Enjoy A Guanaba Sunday Social

  1. Arrive early.
  2. If you would like to sing with the band, please register in the RED BOOK located at the front door upon your arrival.
  3. Visiting club shows take precedence, and are assigned 30-45 minutes of performance time.
  4. Guanaba Club reserves the right to have club members perform together as a club show. They may be asked to only sing one song, if the list of visiting singers is too long to get through by 6:00pm.
  5. All endeavours will be made to make sure that all visiting singers can perform on the day. In some circumstances, they may be asked to limit themselves to one song after 4:30pm.
  6. Please stay on to 6 o'clock and take part in our usual sing-a-long, if time permits.

Tribute - Slim Dusty

Ode To Slim Dusty
(Longyard In The Sky)

2003 © Ray Cooper

Friday, 19 September 2003

It’s a lonesome away
From the campfire at night
The boy from the bush .. country icon .. a giant
From the lights on the hill
To the pub with no beer
Slim was our hero .. a legend
Our greatest balladeer

The boy from the bush
Is no longer here
Left us but never forgotten
His simple songs gave us much cheer
Like the dusty roads of the outback
The veins in his hands
He sang of his beloved Australia
Sang of his great love for this land

Wrote his first song at the age of ten
Travelled the roads all over
Again and again
For fifty odd years
He gave us everything he had
All that he was
From the longyard to the great ocean
This man from Oz

Sure gunna miss you Slim
But your passion will live on
In your songs
Reminding us of what we have
This great country .. so proud .. so strong
So farewell to you with a matey goodbye
And may peace be always with you
In that great longyard in the sky
