About this activity

Our leaders organise  some short Monday to Friday trips with a two or three week trip each year. We have a break in the winter months, for some of our members to travel to warmer climates.

 

Exploring Kelly Country and the Farm Gate Trail
Our happy band of caravaners/cabiners recently spent seven nights in Victoria’s Kelly Country and its Sun Country Farm Gate Trail. Both caravan parks had us right beside the water: Seven Creeks in Euroa and Broken Creek in Numurkah. As well as Kellyana, Euroa offered a memorial to the shire’s three Victoria Cross winners, and a fine museum that opened specially for us. Avenel saw us at its Kelly-oriented maze, the local creek from which Ned saved a potentially drowning child, the historic bridge over Avenel Creek and Ned’s dad’s grave. The Farm Gate trail took us to a Katamatite Garlic Farm, Rich Glen Olive Estate, the National Trust ‘A’ classified Byramine Homestead (which now comes with a brewery and cider house attached), Monichino Wines, and Boosey Creek Cheese. Naturally, there was no shortage of items to buy. On one warmish day we crossed the border to lunch in air conditioned comfort at Club Mulwala. We were back at base most days in time for an afternoon nap (or a laundry catch-up) before the 5pm happy hour, which was always well attended and where many of the nation’s problems were solved. Hypothetically.
