Welcome Drinks & Canapes from 4pm-6pm on the Function Terrace. Cash bar available.

For those interested in dinner after, Spike Bar and Grill or Legends restaurant (right next door) are open till 9.00pm.

Saturday 22nd

A lazy 10am start for a really not too serious observation run thru the vineyards, finishing about one and a half hours later at Wombat Crossing Vineyard (hop on Google, it is a beautiful place). An Italian antipasto lunch box will be provided (vegan and vegetarian options available). Drinks will be additional.

Dinner in the Founders Room.

A half day winery tour is available picking up from your hotel around 9.00-9.30am and returning to your hotel at about 1.00pm. All-inclusive price is $89.00 per person.

6.30pm for 7.00pm start in the Founders Room. An alternate plate three course meal will be served @ $80.00 per head. Please note, this is payable by the 1st of October. See details below.

Sunday 23rd

Featuring the Elan and Plus 2 the display will be held throughout the hotel car park. (It was fitting that they named the hotel after the Elan) A separate area will be designated for the featured cars. Coffee and snacks will be available at the streamliner caravan across the road or at Spike Bar and Grill.

For those staying on, dinner will be available till 9.00pm at Spike Bar or Legends restaurant.

In addition to existing bar and restaurant options there is a new venue called Nineteen, consisting of a cafe, club bar and restaurant due to open about the same time as our event however the recent and continual wet weather may delay the opening. We can only hope.
