VIC Road Trip to the MR2 Nationals 2015

Don't think about going to the MR2 Nationals 2015 in Brisbane, QLD in June, JUST DO IT!!!!  Life is too short not to.
Visit the Nationals post on the QLD section for further information and the MR2 Nationals Program.
 
If you want to join the VIC Road Trip (we have 9 MR2s already going) to the MR2 Nationals 2015 in Brisbane, QLD then attached is the proposed route, "Draft Plan No 1" for the VIC Road Trip to the Nationals.  The plan is to get to the Nationals via the shortest, practical, direct route over three days of driving.
 
I have broken it up into approx. three equal days and two overnight stops:
 
Leg 1. Wednesday 3 June.  Lilydale, VIC to Cootamundra, NSW 542kms taking approx. 5.5 hours staying at a good motel in Cootamundra we have used before.
 
Leg 2.  Thursday 4 June.  Cootamundra, NSW to Tamworth, NSW 604kms taking approx. 7 hours.  Accommodation in Tamworth TBA.
 
Leg 3.  Friday 5 June.  Tamworth, NSW to arrive at National headquarters 351 Beams road Taigum, Brisbane, QLD 587kms taking approx. 6.75 hours to arrive mid afternoon.
 
Check this out yourself on Google Maps (see map).  It should allow some time to do some sightseeing along the way and of course you are free to "do your own thing"!!  This plan is subject to change if you have a better suggestion until the end of April, when we will need to book accommodation at our two overnight stops.  I hope by now you have entered and booked your accommodation at the Colonial Village (phone: 07 3865 0000 mention the Internet Rate and the MR2 Club) as it is filling up fast.
 
The return journey home will be at your leisure as some have indicated they will be staying in Brisbane/QLD a little longer
 
Hit reply for comments and questions and feel free to forward this to any other MR2 Owners who wish to join us.
 
Cheers, Kevin (AKA REDMR2RED)
