Join the Hunter Chapter for a waypoint run down the Putty Road to Tractor 828 Cafe at Sackville for brunch. 

An early start to beat the traffic, we'll meet at Cessnock Visitor Information Centre at 8:00am leaving promptly 8:30am  and then we'll head off in convoy through the vineyards to Broke and the start of the Putty Rd.

Once on the Putty it's a "Drive at your own Leisure" to Bull Ridge Road with the spirited drivers up front and those who prefer a more cruiser style of drive towards the back. Follow Bull Ridge Road towards the Sackville ferry turning right at the Tee intersection away from the ferry to towards the cafe

We will have a short toilet stop and re-group at Grey Gums Cafe before heading on to Tractor 828 Cafe for Brunch and Coffee.

***** RSVP by Wednesday 22nd May ******

Due to the simplicity of this route today will be a Waypoint run. Simply follow your nose and the convoy of MX-5's to the Putty Road.

Approx. 167km / 2 1/4 hours of driving to the destination including a short toilet break at Grey Gums Cafe.

A full tank of fuel is advised before arriving at the meet point.
