What Happens Then?

This itinerary was as planned “before Coronavirus”. While many of the scheduled activities are expected to eventuate it may be necessary to split groups to alternate days to meet the prevailing COVID rules. The itinerary below is now “An indication only”

Monday and Tuesday
are touring days.  One short, one long.  Provision has been made for smaller/slower vehicles so they don’t miss any of the planned activities on the longer run.

South Australia will host a fellowship dinner on the Tuesday evening with a 1907 veteran adventure presentation.  Watch this space.

Starts with a car display at Riverside Park adjacent to the Murray River. In the afternoon you may wish to join our 1910 Garden Party set in the grounds of the historic Pioneer Settlement. Following a gourmet BBQ dinner, our gaslight run with a twist will commence.

Thursday and Friday   
are touring days.  Again, one short, one long. The Gala Rally Dinner will be held in the grand Art Deco Town Hall on the Friday evening.

The event finishes on Saturday morning October 16th with a Farewell Breakfast.
