AROCA Childrens’ Xmas Party
Sunday 5th December
10:00 am to 3:00 pm
This is a special invitation to all AROCA Kids, to bring your siblings, parents, grandparents and other family members to enjoy a picnic and a great day out with Club members by the Studley Park Boathouse:
BBQ facilities will be reserved, but you will need to bring your own food, drink and picnic items, or you could buy a bite to eat from the boathouse kiosk.
All pre-teenage kids will receive a complimentary Xmas present from the Club
(But Kids, make sure Mum or Dad tells us how many kids of what age are coming when they register)
A visit from Santa has also been arranged – which was tough to negotiate, given that he has to take timeout from his hectic schedule back at the North Pole!
Hire a boat, kayak, or canoe from the nearby boathouse which boasts the oldest public boathouse on the Yarra River. Boat hire details are [here].
Don’t forget a picnic rug and cushions to sit on, or chairs and picnic table if you prefer.
We hope to see as many kids with their families as possible attend as we anticipate a great turnout.
This has previously been our most popular Club family event and we would like you to make it so again!
This will also possibly be one of our first physical events for quite some time, so all Club members should come along and make the most of it – a nice drive and a great day out in the Park with friends.
Please register by contacting:
Mandy Thompson E: PR@alfaclubvic.org.au M: 0412 806 240.

Alfesta – the annual gathering of Alfisti in Australia
lfesta – the annual gathering of Alfisti in Australia
Alfisti is the collective noun for people who share a passion for all things Alfa Romeo related. This passion often starts as a gentle appreciation of the Marque, but typically develops into a deep, almost irrational, devotion. It transcends nationality, age, gender, language, politics and religion.
Each year, the Alfa Romeo Owners Club of Australia issues an open invitation to Alfisti near and far to gather and celebrate all things Alfa Romeo. This gathering is known as an Alfesta!
In 2022, it is the New South Wales division’s turn to host Alfesta over the Easter long weekend of Thursday 14th April to Monday 18th April.
The location for Alfesta 2022 is the beautiful seaside town of Port Macquarie on the New South Wales mid north coast. Accommodation for Alfesta in-house attendees is the Waters Edge Boutique Hotel.
Go to the Alfesta 2022 Facebook page to watch our promotional video and for all the latest updates.
Whether you are a current Australian Club member or an overseas visitor from one of the many Alfa Romeo Owners Clubs worldwide, you will be warmly welcomed at this event. Please note, however, that Alfesta attendance is only open to financial members of an official Alfa Romeo Owners Club.
How to book – it’s as easy as A B C
