MINIS OVER THE MOUNTAINS - 7-12 April 2024.
Do you want to go on an amazing road trip in your Classic Mini or your MINI?
Then why not join our “Minis over the Mountains” tour including Mount Ainslie, Mt Kosciusko, Mt Panorama between 7-12th April 2024.
We hope to catch the autumn colours as we travel over the mountains and through country NSW. The route has been calculated to limit each day’s travel to around 250km or 3 hours driving with the round trip from Sydney to be approx. 1500km. Overnight stops are in Canberra, Jindabyne, Wagga Wagga, Cowra and Bathurst via Mt Kosciusko through Khancoban and Tumbarumba. During the day we will take in the views and tourist sites including Mt Ainsley, Old Parliament House, Canberra Arboretum, Temora Aircraft Museum, Cowra Japanese gardens, Mt Panorama, Bathurst and more.
Estimated cost for our adventure for two people with 5 night’s accommodation, fuel and meals is approx. $1500.
In early October we booked accommodation at each of the planned motels and will need to confirm these rooms for participants by late November 2023.
Happily we already have enough participants to make this event viable and they join us in hoping you can join us for these incredible six days or a couple along the way.
Firm confirmation and bookings will be made in late November 2023.
Please email email@example.com or phone Michael 0411019112 to indicate your interest.
