This event has been organised to help Wye River’s recovery after last year’s bushfires by spending some money there.
On the Saturday morning we will gather at the Great Ocean Road Chocolaterie on the Great Ocean Road at Bellbrae, near Anglesea for coffee, cake and chocolate.
When we have had our fill we will head down the Great Ocean Road to Lorne. Here you can visit Erskine Falls and gather at Michael York’s home near the falls for an inspection of his barn full of old Peugeots.
Then we will drive into Lorne for lunch at the Grand Pacific Hotel, where they have a good range of burgers, paninis, salads, share plates etc.
After lunch we’ll drive to Wye River and book in to the Big 4 caravan park where we will receive a 15% discount, so cabins are about $120 a double.
After the traditional 5.04s we will move to the Wye Beach Hotel for dinner. Mains are about $30 but there are lots of other choices.
On the Sunday morning we’ll drive to Apollo Bay for coffee and a look around the town.
Then we will travel via Lavers Hill, Turtons Track and the Great Otway National Park to Forrest, with plenty of huge trees, tree ferns, etc on the way.
Lunch will be at the Forrest Brewing Company, a casual place with a great winter menu that is not expensive.
After lunch we head home, with optional an coffee stop at Birregurra. Melbourne people would be home by about 5pm.
