Planned Trips

An annual event held over the Queens Birthday weekend on private property between Ararat and Halls gap.  You can arrive from the Friday afternoon onwards leaving early Sunday afternoon .  The property has a shed, tank water and lots of camping area.  The Krakatinnie Golf Classic will be held on the property for those who are keen to swing a club in the rough!  There is a day trip into the Grampians area on the Saturday.  The Sunday is devoted to a big Christmas style gala lunch with an “Evil Santa” KrisKringle event around the campfire followed by a cooking/drink making competition in the afternoon and evening.  Hopefully after all that you can still find your way to your own accommodation!.

A Skills sharing weekend based around Licola - Arbuckle High Plains area.

Skills sharing will cover the whole range of basic 4x4ing skills including plugging and changing tyres, basic “on-track” maintenance, basic tool kit and spares, recovery techniques including towing, snatching and winching.

Last year we went further afield to Licola for our Snow Trip in order to increase the chance of finding snow and to be able to actually camp in the white stuff.  It seemed to be a great success with lots of snow fights, building snow men, high altitude camping and big fires.  We also found a challenging drive on the Sunday morning which saw a couple of us bogged or sliding off track!

If it worked last year, let’s try it again!

No doubt we will be depending on the weather, so things may change.

This trip is an ideal introduction to the Victorian High Country for new members and will include a variety of tracks - mostly easy - with some verging on Medium. There will also be a few easy river crossings. This is a touring event stopping overnight at different locations to visit a number of iconic locations in the High Country where we will learn about the places and people that were among the early explorers and settlers. Plus: we will discover the mysterious connection with the Mornington Peninsula.
