We’ll be visiting a part of the State little visited by the Club and, weather permitting, you’ll have the chance to feel the sand between your toes as well as be rejuvenated by the fresh eucalyptus air of some of Victoria’s magnificent forests.

The price per person is $198 on a twin share basis or $248 for a single. This covers a simple Saturday lunch, 2 course buffet style dinner, accommodation and cooked & continental breakfast, the cost of admission to the activity on the Sunday morning and a 3 course lunch on the Sunday (drinks at own expense).

We’ll head off at 9am on the Saturday and the weekend concludes at the end of the Sunday lunch. If you would like further information, please call Euan Brown on 0418 142 079.
