After a successful trip to Castlemaine, our Discovery Group will be going to the South Gippsland area on November 10th to 14th for a tour organised by Bill Rutherford and Alan Holmes. Details will appear in future Bulletins.
Originally called the “Caravan and Camping Group” when it was established in 2002, the Discovery Group arranges two or three trips each year within a range of about 150km from “home” – for periods of 3-5 days – to “discover” Victoria and southern Australia.
Members stay in caravan park cabins or motels, and spend their time away visiting and exploring local interest spots.
Since its formation in 2002, the Group has travelled to, and toured, 24 Victorian towns and regions, including Airey’s Inlet, Anglesea, Ballarat, Barwon Heads, Beechworth, Bendigo, Cowes, Dromana, Echuca, Geelong, Hastings, Healesville, Inverloch, Lakes Entrance, Maryborough, Mornington Peninsula, Phillip Island, Seymour, Warragul, the Grampians and Stawell, Wangaratta, Yarrawonga. In 2016, the Group ventured further afield with trips to Canberra and Mount Gambier. Our most recent trip was to Mildura.
The Group has always had excellent trips because of the attitude of members and the spirit of camaraderie and goodwill.
