Mid 911 Register Run to Aqua bar & café, Lake Eildon
Saturday 5th October 2019
(Optional overnight, Dinner and overnight in Mansfield, Return Sunday, 6th October)
This is run is planned as overnight event, however, obviously attendees can choose to return to Melbourne at any stage.
Saturday will begin with a relaxed meeting time at Croydon, then an interesting run of about 1.5 hours to Yea for morning tea. Following that we drive for about one hour via Acheron and Taggerty to the beautiful Aqua Bar and Café for lunch on the banks of Lake Eildon (photo above).
After a leisurely lunch we will head south east and then north east around Lake Eildon heading to Mansfield via the Eildon Jamieson Road. This is an awesome road, but not recommended for faint hearted! This section will take about 1.5 hours. Dinner on Saturday night is booked at Bos Taurus Bar and Bistro. This restaurant has a high reputation for superb steaks however, they do cater for a wide selection of cuisines.
Please note that those who are staying for the Saturday night (hopefully most attendees!) are required to organise their own accommodation to suit their own personal preferences and tastes. A wide range of accommodation is available in Mansfield, however, suggested options for those happy with motel style accommodation are provided below. To ensure your personal preferences are met the earlier the booking is made the better.
Attendees who are returning to Melbourne on Saturday can return via the normal Mt Buller “ski road” via Yea and Yarra Glen. Hopefully being after ski season traffic should light.
An optional informal arrangement to meet for breakfast on Sunday will be provided, prior to the return journey to Melbourne
Numbers are limited to 30, and a waiting list will be organised.
