COVID is the reason, as might be expected.

Day 1 Saturday 18 September 2021

Join us on a run for an overnight stay in Orange, zooming the roads less travelled, where, of course the journey is just as important as the destination.

On day 1 we will assemble at Hungry Jacks Haywards Bay at 8.30 am for a 9.00 am departure to Bundanoon where we take a coffee break. Then we will travel down the Highlands Way via Goulburn to Crookwell for lunch.

Following lunch, we will continue via Trunkey Creek, Tuena, and Blayney to arrive at Millthorpe where there will be time to visit the eclectic shops or sit on a chair outside the eclectic shops. There is also a nice little pub for cool drinks.

Next, we travel to Orange arriving around 4.15 pm  at the West End Motor Lodge,  2-6 Dalton Street, where 15 rooms ($140 / room) have been set aside. Please contact the motel - 63625755 and mention MX5 Club to secure a room.

Of course, there will be the traditional drinks and nibbles at the Motel (byo).  We also plan to hold- ‘Fun’ Trivia at the Motel. For those of you who have done our trivias before, the word ‘fun’ is to be taken loosely.

A booking for dinner has been made for 7.30 at the Royal Hotel in Orange.
