Recommended Posts

 

 

10:00AM Meeting point at Chirnside Park Kmart Auto Car Park

 

Maroondah Hwy & Black Springs Rd Chirnside Park 3116

 

Melways page 37, in F5 and G5

 

11:30AM Leave first meeting point heading to Buxton via Maroondah Hwy

 

Quick stop at Maroondah Reservoir/Dam to bunch up and let everyone catch up before we hit the Black Spur as a group.

 

12:30-1:00PM Arrive at Igloo Roadhouse for the famous Buxton Burgers

 

2:30PM Head back towards Melbourne (if everyone gets through the burgers by this time)

 

3:00PM Show and Shine, chit chat and brag, photos and vids at Fernshaw Picnic Grounds car park.

 

4:00PM (or more if needed) Heading back to Melbourne.

 

 

 

Apart from the departure time of 11:30AM, all other times are APPROXIMATES

ONLY and may change throughout the day.

 

There is always Police presence on the Spur and it is notorious for accidents, be sure to take care through it.

 

This is a cruise and not a race so enjoy it for what it is, a cruise.

 

Safe driving and enjoy the day.

 

 

LIST OF THINGS TO BRING ARE 2 WAY RADIOS IF YOU HAVE THEM, FULL TANK OF FUEL

ALTHOUGH YOU CAN FILL UP AT BUXTON, PLENTY OF DRINKING WATER TO STAY HYDRATED

DURING THE DRIVE, SOME COOLANT IN CASE THE CAR OVERHEATS AND SOME BASIC TOOLS

IF YOU CAN. ALSO HATS AND SUN SCREEN WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA.

APART FROM THAT BRING AN APPETITE AS THEM BURGERS ARE MASSIVE!!

Anyone coming on this drive day ? . Dosan't  seem to be any movement at the station.

I've just come back from a mantrip and going to a concert tomrrow night, so think its a bit rude to tell my wife that I'm going for a drive Saturday........

Will see if dad wants to tag along in the Z though.

It is tempting and legal to drive the zed on this cruise now...received from Vicroads the new log book scheme. But the house thing is a sort of a priority.

No Evo I think it's a Lurch initiative. I will be there in the Zed if no rain. If rain then I will come along with a new support vehicle I picked up today.

Yeah. Might give it a miss as well. I wouldn't be surprised if there was damage to the Black Spur road anyway. Maybe another time. Cheers
