14th HISTORIC LAND ROVER WEEKEND

Paxina, north of Lithgow

 

The Land Rover Owners’ Club of Australia, Sydney Branch is inviting all owners of Historic and interesting Land Rovers and Range Rovers to join them in a weekend of activities based on the property of Club Members Patrick and Margaret Sutcliffe.

The property has good bush camping and is about 44 kilometres north of Lithgow. Two bush toilets are provided, but there are no other facilities. Access to the site is possible for camper trailers towed by a proper 4WD (ie with low ratio and high clearance), but NOT caravans. Wood for campfires is available.

 

Details of how to get there will be provided on booking.

 

Activities include a series of motorkhana events, exploring some nearby interesting tracks with possibly short trips through the spectacular Capertee Valley, the Airley township ruins or visiting the historic shale mining town of Glen Davis, viewing the vehicles and counting rivets, and the telling of tall tales around the campfire (subject to fire restrictions).
