Club Summer Run to Alpine Hotel, Warburton

Sunday 26th February

We hope you have all had a good start to the New Year.  PCV is offering a great start for an enjoyable get together and catch up with a whole club Social Run.  So, we invite all fellow Porsche Club Vic members and especially encourage new members to join us for this Summer Run to Warburton.  Hopefully it’ll be Summer weather :).

Yes, it’s time to warm up those German Ponies for a well-deserved run. And, if you haven’t done so already, remove the dust that has settled over the break. Hopefully not too much dust!

This run will be slightly different with a later drive start but an earlier meet time to enable members to socalise over a cup of coffee at Tosaria Cafe Rowville. This run has been organised for everyone to enjoy a leisurely drive taking in some very nice Victorian countryside scenery.

Once we’ve had our catch up we will start by heading east travelling through Emerald and then south to Pakenham. As we continue there will be a short drive onto Princes Hwy keeping left before we turn off for Longwarry/Labertouche. For those that would like to have a short break there’s a convenience Service Area immediately on the left for those that wish to refresh, with substantial parking on the side and the back. At this point we would’ve travelled approximately an hour, halfway.

From there we continue left at the roundabout for Labertouche/Jindivick. As we travel East through Drouin and then north through Neerim, Powelltown, Gladysdale along some very enjoyable roads before we reach our final destination, Warburton’s 1885 Heritage listed Alpine Hotel.   

Along the way you will experience a diverse driving experience and be able to use those driving skills that have been hibernating for a while. You may also wish to share your driving with your partner.

For members who wish to stay the night the Alpine Hotel owner has provided a special price of $180 per night. Contact Alpine Hotel direct for the accommodation booking and just let them know you’re from the Porsche Club Vic. https://alpineretreat.com.au/

We hope this invitation inspires you to join us on this Great Porsche Club Day Out, so book early to secure your spot and avoid disappointment.
