Southerly Busters Caravan Group Activities

With spring in the air the Southerly Busters have re-ignited their activities for the remainder of the year.

The Southerly Busters are a branch of the Australian Caravan Club and have members stretching from the lower area of Sydney to Narooma. The group includes caravans, camper trailers and motor homes.

Branch president, Ian Granland said “We don’t do much over winter, it gets too cold but this year we have been firmly released from covid restrictions so the group is back into action.”

“An outing in August was a bit out of our normal strategy however the branch just finished a weeks get together on the mid North Coast at North Haven with all who attended praising the organisers for their very conscientious arrangements which included, amongst other things, outings to local places of interest, bar-b-ques, club visitations and special evening quizzes.”

Next outing will be a two-week excursion in October to Victoria visiting various old gold mining towns and other sites of interest. One of these will be a stopover at Glenrowan to check out the remnants of the Kelly Gang and see a short movie of their activities.

Bendigo is another on the agenda where the three day stay will include a visit to the Golden Dragon Museum, Bendigo Pottery, a trip on a vintage tram as well as another outing on the celebrated Maldon train.

Of course a visit to Victoria wouldn’t be complete without calling in on the remarkable Sovereign Hill in Ballarat as well as visits to Daylesford, Avoca and Beechworth. All up the trip will cover around 2000km.

Further activities for the group this year are planned for Melbourne Cup Day at Callala with the final activity at South Durras in November. Then come early next year with plans already in train for some great activities both locally and intra-state.
