Definition of Flop and Drop
I suggest "Flop & Drop" would refer to a deserving holiday candidate desperate to unwind and chill out. So tense and wound up, all they can cope with is to get to their destination and then collapse from exhaustion. Hence flop (after check in) and drop (after hitting the bed)! I also gather that flopping and dropping is fashionably done at the beach! Lets face it, just the term beach instantly relaxes you, doesn't it. That is without smelling it or hearing it! Reality affords a more powerful sense!

Rainbow Beach Hire-a-camp - Camping Made Easy
Accommodation In A Protected Area
We are very fortunate to have achieved a Commercial Activity Agreement to operate in the Protected area known as Inskip Recreation Area. A protected area is defined as “A clearly defined geographical space, recognised, dedicated and managed, through legal or other effective means, to achieve the long-term conservation of nature with associated ecosystem services and cultural values. 5IUCN, 2008”
Connecting You with Nature
Our self contained comfortable beach camping accommodation is a great way to connect yourself with nature from the ground up. In fact, we believe that camping is the healthy holiday for you AND the environment.
Camping is Part of A Kid's Rite of Passage to Adulthood
Sometimes you just have to not only 'think' outside the box, you have to 'step' outside the box. Live a little. Paint yourself a picture in your head, or better still use this one to the left! Have you ever woken up to a view like this? So close to the beach you were actually on it? You could smell it, feel it, even taste it! (hold the salt)
You don't have to load up the car or even pack the kitchen sink! Our self contained accommodation has the entertainment included. We know bird watching isn't everyone's cup of tea but there are lots of other things to do, even things you may not have thought of. You don't even have to bring a laptop! In fact, we recommend you don't! You can also leave the phone at home, if you dare! You probably won't need it! Can you go without Wi Fi?
Think Outside the Box!
Kids Love Camping
We believe that today's kids are tomorrow's caretakers of our natural assets. In order to care for them they must first value them. To value them they must first experience them. With us you can experience Nature from the ground up. We believe in preventing "Nature Deficit Disorder' so we make it very easy for you.
Kids love camping. Adults love camping. More people would go camping if they didn't have to lift a finger. So that's why we do it. We want more people to experience the great outdoors. It's good for you.
An 'Out of Resort' experience
We provide a different sort of holiday or break away. One that is probably vastly different to what you are used to. That's what makes us special! We provide an 'Out of Resort' experience.
Healthy Holiday for You and the Environment
We are Campingologists and we don't build permanent structures. We set up our comfortable camps in a Protected Area called Inskip Peninsula that is surrounded by National Parks. Then we pack them back up again and leave no trace that we were ever there. We embrace the term "footprints" because that's all we leave.
We create special experiences for you in a special place. Rainbow Beach, Queensland.
Our accommodation is also the entertainment
Do you know what you're made of?
Can you fend for yourself?
Are you intimidated by your environment?
What do you do when the power goes out?
Can you cope?
Are you scared to venture away from you man made fortresses?
Where is your sense of adventure?
More to the point, what have you lost?
You have had your natural instincts urbanised away from your evolutionary instinctive defence. Go on admit it. How far removed are you from the real world?
One great way to gauge your reality is to go camping. If you can't cope with camping, you may not make it in the REAL world! Ahhh! I hear you say, define 'the real world'. Well the real world is natural. The unreal world is man made, simple.
Challenge yourself and take the family camping. Can you cook a meal without electricity or gas? Take that for starters. Can you catch your own food? Do you know how to catch a fish? This is a very basic Human instinct that has been urbanised away.
Camping is not new. Families have been camping ever since they arrived in Australia. Let's face it, the first visitors did not arrive to a ready built resort like they do now! Think gold rush, think tent city! Think gold, think Gympie. Even now, you can think tent and think Rainbow Beach Hire-a-camp.
While we challenge you to test yourself camping, we also make it very easy for all those busy people out there to do just that.
While our guests grabble with the definition of ensuite, we do provide all the creature comforts, including the amenities! We make it easy for you to test yourself and educate your children about being self sufficient. I would hazzard a guess that 'self sufficient' will be a term we will hear a lot more frequently in future. The more self sufficient we are, individually, the less pressure on the general pool and the less harm will be inflicted on the environment. After all, the environment is what sustains each and every one of us in one way or another.
Do you and your family a favour and challenge yourself to not only be a more responsible consumer but to experience more of our natural world.
In today's materially obsessed world, it seems strange to see the word 'rich' associated with camping. After all, I hear you say, isn't camping just a cheap holiday option in tough economic times?
We believe that being rich isn't only about money. Just ask anyone who goes camping, for the 'money can't buy' experiences they have on every trip. How it's a priceless chance to get closer to nature and get back in touch with who you really are. How working together to pitch the tent or set up the camp, cook the food and share the chores brings families closer together in a way that everyday life can't and how there's a genuine, old-fashioned sense of community in camping that maybe we're losing through new forms of 'social networking'. We think it's a truer kind of wealth. Because it's not about the riches you own; it's about the emotional richness in our lives.
And we have a theory that camping is not just good for our mental and physical health because we're spending time out of doors within nature, although as many other studies have shown, this does have a significant benefit on our wellbeing, our belief is that the benefits of camping go much deeper than this.
That camping has benefits for us on many levels, our mental and physical health, family togetherness, community cohesion, child development and not least, how happy we feel.
By Matthew Eastlake, Marketing & Communications Director, The Camping and Caravanning Club
Camping is the healthy holiday. That is why we don't try to compete with any other style of accommodation. We are unique. We provide accommodation that is also the entertainment. An adventure. Absolute beach front without an exclusive price tag.
But, it comes at a cost, as we are very labour intensive. We do all the things you hate about camping, so you can enjoy all the things you love. We pride ourselves on the authentic camping experience as opposed to cabins, caravans, campervans and of course resorts. What we do offer is an 'out of resort' experience! Something totally different. A blue sky holiday with green days.
We are also carbon neutral, environmentally friendly and sustainable. We leave MINIMAL human footprints on the environment because we care for health of the planet.
We believe that our kids are the future caretakers of our natural assets. In order to care for them, they need to value them. In order to value these assets they must first be experienced. We are all for getting our kids outdoors in the fresh air and being active.
However, we totally encourage you to try camping and by doing all the hard work yourself, you can also enjoy the many benefits without the cost of our labour and expertise.
Do Australia a favour and holiday at home. You can still feel a million miles away.
How can a team building 'Thong Camp' help your staff work together better?
We start by creating an unintimidating natural surrounding where work mates and colleagues can relax and be themselves without fear of repercussions. The beach is the perfect setting.
The challenges are all natural, as in adapting to the weather, travelling together, shopping to a budget and a purpose, preparing meals together, and judging team cooking performance. No fancy complicated games or sessions, just real people in a real environment, breaking down the office barriers. What better way to get to know each other than over a meal, a wine and a campfire on the beach.
Long strolls on the beach to clear the head, fresh healthy food and mind stimulating conversation. Uncomplicated and unstructured. Bring out the real human side of your staff.
According to Melvin Richardson the benefits of corporate team-building are many fold.
Team-building activities help people understand the importance of working together. A company is more productive when everyone works together for a common goal, without factions or other divisive elements.
Team-building activities help develop an atmosphere of trust, confidence, energy and creativity. Team-building helps put everyone in a spirit of agreement.
When people come together in team-building activities, it results in more ideas from everyone involved. There is more participation. An organization can improve certain processes and procedures when everyone cares about and is a part of the outcome.
People have a tendency to help each other more when there are team-building activities. Team-building creates an environment that motivates people to achieve the goals and objectives of the organization while subordinating individual goals.
Team-building activities give people a chance to learn personal information about each other. People are then able to establish a certain amount of rapport and are more tolerant of each other. This creates a situation in which people are willing to work through situations in a more amicable way.
In team-building, employees have a tendency to be more concerned with the result rather than individual recognition. This makes an organization more likely to experience an increase in sales, lower costs, lower turnover and less absenteeism.
