Melrose and Broken Hill Extended Trip
March 31, 2021, 08:00 - April 10, 2021, 17:00
Richard Lead’s and Banjo’s recent Club trip to Hill End and Orange was amazing, but at Orange you can still hear the waves crashing on Bondi Beach. The brilliant engineers at Solihull did not design our Land Rovers to hug the East Coast of Australia, so Richard and Banjo are now venturing further into the Red Centre on a two part trip. Come for one or both parts – either way, you will be guaranteed of a good time.
The following is a guide of what to expect over this 10-night extended trip, as Richard is very flexible and will be happy to make changes depending on what trip participants would prefer to do.
Leaving Sydney on Wednesday, March 31st and taking two nights to get down to Melrose in South Australia. You can either travel down with Richard in convoy, or meet along the way, or even down in Melrose itself.
You will arrive in Melrose in time to join in the fun of the SA Land Rover Easter long weekend. This is a family-friendly programme designed to appeal to enthusiasts on multiple levels including:
- Best of breed (show and shine)
- Tag-a longs
- Social activities
- Great camping
- Kids’ activities.
The full programme is yet to be finalised, however registrations are now open and more details can be found on the website of the Land Rover Register of South Australia.
If the event is impacted by COVID, full refunds will be available.
Part Two: April 5 – April 10
You will leave Melrose on Monday 5th and travel to Broken Hill for four nights. Highlights of this part of the trip will include a tour by Australian geologist, Prof. Ian Plimer. Ian has kindly offered to host us at his property, which has some challenging 4WD tracks, which will no doubt provide endless hours of entertainment. Accommodation will be at a caravan park in Broken Hill.
To express your interest in this trip, or to register for one or both parts, please contact Richard Lead.
Note: As with all Club trips in 2021, changes or cancellations may occur due to border closures and Government COVID rules.
