We will meet at La Manna Direct for breakfast prior to the drive. The drive will start with an easy cruise via Woodend and through the surrounding countryside via off-freeway roads, to a coffee break Ballan around 10.00 am. Time permitting we will also make use of roads in this area for a photo opportunity to show off the participating cars. Club Members who live in the Macedon and Goldfields Region are encouraged to join us at Woodend or later in Daylesford for an enjoyable day out. From Woodend the tour will continue around the scenic Upper Coliban Reservoir and on to very popular Farmers Arms Hotel in Daylesford.
Because the farmers Arms Hotel doesn’t take lunch bookings we will have to get in early otherwise we will not get a seat. The Farmers Arms is the oldest pub in Daylesford (built in 1857) and is not your average country pub, offering the perfect blend of country charm with a reasonable priced menu and wine list, as we discovered in past years.
Please confirm your intention to participate. When booking, please provide your name, members number, vehicle and contact details.
