Join us on a cruise through some of the best driving roads in NSW.

This cruise has been organised so you can join in for a little or the whole lot.
You can come on a short cruise up the Putty for breakfast, or continue with us to the Hunter Valley for lunch If you can only spare one day.

Or if you can’t make it on Saturday you can meet us in Bathurst on Sunday for lunch & a few laps of the famous Mt Panorama
race track.

It is a multi club event & anyone is welcome. This cruise is open to any car so feel free to bring your modern car or bring your classic out for a good excuse to blow off the cobwebs.





DAY 1
PUTTY ROAD & BYLONG VALLEY WAY

We will head up the Putty Road stopping half way at
the Grey Gum Cafe for morning tea. From there we will
continue along the Putty Road to the Hunter Valley
wine region for lunch at the Hunter Valley Gardens,
which features boutique shops, places to eat, some
fantastic gardens, playground for the kids, & even
put put & aqua golf.
This will be the meeting point for anyone coming from
the Hunter Valley/ Newcastle area. After lunch we will briefly stop at Singleton to top up with
fuel for the next leg down the scenic Bylong Valley Way
to the quiet country town of Kandos where we will
stay the night.


DAY 2
SOFALA-BATHURST & BELLS LINE OF ROAD

Day 2 will see us travel to the historic gold rush town of
Sofala. The oldest surviving gold rush town in Australia
& remains virtually untouched from that era.
From Sofala we will continue on to Bathurst following the
route used by famous Cobb & Co that serviced the
goldfields & was also notorious for bushrangers. Once in Bathurst we will stop for lunch & do a few laps of
Mt Panorama & if you choose have a look through the
Motor Racing Museum. After lunch in Bathurst we will
head back to Sydney via another of the great driving roads,
the Bells Line of Road, which was originally used by the
Aboriginals as one of the first tracks over
the Blue Mountains.

Hopefully the engine will be back from the builders and tuned and the roster guys are kind, otherwise I'm looking forward to it.

For any other members that are still interested in joining us for this cruise accommodation can still be found at hotels nearby or several B & B's in the area.
Call the Fairways Motel in Kandos [# is attached in promo document]
and I'm sure Maria [manager] will be able to give you contact details.

wow it did fill up quick. I will do some calling around & try to find another place nearby. There is also accommodation in Rylestone which is a nearby town that we pass through before we get to Kandos.

Great to see so much interest in this one

Its going to be a fantastic weekend. I have been approached by a few people about accommodation now that we have filled the Fairways Motel.

There are a couple of rooms still at The Railway Hotel Kandos
http://railwayhotelkandos.com/

So if you want to book a room you had better get in quick as I have found out that there are a couple of other events happening in Kandos that weekend & its getting hard to find a room.
