Harcourt Valley



Sunday 17th September 2017

Our Spring Run for 2017 will be a special affair, organised by committee members Ken Anson and Michael O'Brien.  The run is created with the driver in mind, but enjoyable for all!  The run is approximately 200 kilometres from our meeting point to the luncheon destination.

The first leg of our run is via some enjoyable and challenging roads to Riddells Creek for morning tea with the Riddells Creek CFA. We then head onto Mount Alexander (for a mini hill climb) via some more challenging roads across the Burke & Wills Track!  

Our destination is the Harcourt Valley Vineyards, the Bendigo region's most awarded winery and is currently rated 5 stars by James Halliday.  In the delightful surrounds, our hosts Kye & Barb Livingstone will provide a sumptuous and relaxed gourmet BBQ of several courses, wine and ginger beer tastings plus live entertainment.

Lunch will be in the winery, heated if necessary for the occasion.  With good weather it will also be an outside affair.

So ensure that Sunday 17th September 2017 is reserved for this special run.

Easy return to Melbourne via the Calder and a relaxed 90 minutes.
