Rockley Road to Travel

Come and join RPM on a run across the Blue Mountains to Rockley which is one of those rare country towns where nothing much seems to have changed for over a century. It has a delightful park beside Pepper's Creek; a beautiful old red brick mill; a pub and a few houses. It is as though nothing has changed and, as such, it has an admirable ambience of peace and serenity. Not surprisingly it has been listed by the National Trust as an Historic Village.

Walnut Runs 2017

A great event for all MX-5s and their owners at the beginning of autumn to one destination with two runs to visit a walnut & chestnut farm at Mt Irvine that includes an awesome drive of Mt Irvine Road as it winds its way through dense rainforest. An early waypoint run to breakfast at a restored 1840s Cobb & Co staging post for the enthusiasts who love to drive their MX-5 on roads that they were designed for and a more relaxed cruise later in the morning over the Blue Mountains to meet up at the farm at around midday. After the farm visit you have the option of lunch or a drive home before the returning day trippers clog up the roads.

Meet
Both the early and later runs commence from McDonalds at the Easter Creek Service Centre on the M4 Westbound
