PROPOSED 4 DAY TOUR of the WESTERN DISTRICTS

PAINTED SILOS

We, your committee, are organising a 4 day / 3 night adventure up into the Western District to view the well promoted “Painted Silos”. We will head off on Wednesday the 30th October and return home on Saturday the 2nd November 2019. We have inspected several motels in each of the towns that we will stay over night in and will produce a list and contact details to give out at the September meeting for members to book their own accommodation. As well as the Silos, we have a number of Places of Interest (POI’s) along the way with the idea that this event is quite flexible from dawn to dusk with the whole group coming together for accommodation and evening meals only.

Should you like to confirm accommodation bookings before the next meeting, please feel free to call me and I will forward the motel listing for your reference.

Painted Silo Event Overview

This club event has been setup to give SPC&HCC members the opportunity to use their special vehicles on a social outing over a 4 day period, enjoy the company of fellow members and to visit the Western District of Victoria taking in the well promoted “Painted Silos” of the area.

The plan is to visit 5 of the 6 Painted Silo sites as well as stopping off along the way to enjoy “Places of Interest” (POI’s) to vary the experience. In all we have some 5 additional POI’s that are listed in this package for you to stop and take in if you so desire. Two (2) of the POI’s will be morning tea breaks, while the others are listed for general interest.

The plan is for members to stay at the motels as listed, but not necessary, (with the list given out when you indicate your interest) which will give members a chance to book rooms to suit their requirements early so as not to miss out on accommodation in the towns that have been selected as over night stays. Warracknabeal has only two (2) motels in town.

Also, we have booked in each town an evening meal venue so that we can all sit around and have a social chat at the end of the days run. Breakfast and lunches will be upto the individuals to organise with Bakeries and Sandwich Bars available at the planned lunch time stops.

The Planned Route

The first day we will travel to Stawell via Beaufort along the Western Hwy. The second day will see us leave Stawell and head off to Rupanyup and then onto Warracknabeal. This is the day to take in the Silos, so don’t forget your cameras. On day three we will head out of Warracknabeal and head to Donald, Charlton and into Bendigo (Golden Square) for the last night stop over. Day four, our last day on the road, we will head south to Kyneton for morning tea and then individually make our own way back home.

A number of the POI”s are listed as optional sites to see, but we do have two lined up for morning tea on the Thursday and Friday, you will find this information listed on the “page of the day” in this information booklet.

We will be closing our participation list on Friday the 25th of October as we are obliged to notify the hotels and POI’s of the number of people attending for morning teas and evening meals.

The organisers hope you enjoy the experience and sights of these magnificent works of art and have a safe and trouble free drive.
