Sunday 1st of October 2017 - Country Cruise – Greenbushes
A long spirited drive through the Collie, Ferguson, Preston, Blackwood, Eden and Capel Valleys gives you the opportunity to spend some time on roads further afield. It is not a relaxed tour of the region with long lunches and coffee breaks; it is about the drive and the roads. This spirited drive may challenge a single driver, or it will be a bit more laidback (but no less fun) for two. It won’t be a navigation exercise; the instructions are straight forward.
We meet at Lemongrass Cafe, 87 Uduc Road, Harvey 141 km south of Perth from 8 am onwards if you want to have brekkie or in time for the 9 am departure if you are having yours beforehand.
From Harvey the 345 km drive along secondary roads takes us into the forests of the Geographe Bay hinterland, farmland, hills, vines, National Parks, State Forests and of course that magic bit of twisting blacktop along the Blackwood River with a stop at the Exchange Hotel in Greenbushes for lunch.
We finish around 3:30 pm at Green Door Wines 178 km south of Perth to reflect on the day’s drive and share some stories before you make your own way home.
All in all you are looking at a total distance of some 663 km; a bit more if you hail from the northern suburbs and a bit less if you are a southerner.
Please RSVP by email to firstname.lastname@example.org before 27 September so we can finalise the lunch booking at the Nannup Tavern and know who should be at the meeting point before we depart.
