2024 afterparty is go !!!!

Post by Blacky »

Righto kids, for the 6 or so of us still on here I am just putting the finishing touches on the itinerary for the afterparty.

Day 1 Monday June 10

Muster in Bunbury and head down to Busselton jetty for morning tea/breakfast
Travel to Dunsborough for a look around and laugh at the locals :ebiggrin:
Travel to Yallingup for lunch
Off to a winery for a tasting
Margaret River chocolate company
Beerfarm - my happy place 8) 8) :thumbsup:
Cheese factory if its open- currently closed
Dinner at the pub or there is a heap of restaurants but its Monday so mostly closed. Motel is a short walk form the pub
Margaret River for the night - staying at Higgins Lane motel 08 9757 0220 tell them you are travelling with the FB/EK Holdens
$135 for a single king room $160 for a family room

Approximate travel distance for the day 125km

Day 2 Tuesday June 11

Breakfast at Drift Cafe at 8 - across the road from the motel
Check out a couple of local attractions - still working on this bit.
Drive to Augusta lighthouse - most south western point of Australia and have a poke around the area
Lunch at the pub
Drive to Beedelup Falls
Drive to Pemberton and have a look around.
Staying in the Pemberton pub - 08 9776 1017 rooms are $170/night - you're in W.A. now , get used to it ........... :esurprised:
Dinner at the pub - Pemberton isn't real big

Approximate travel distance for the day - 190km

Day 3 Wednesday June 12

Breakfast at the bakery then off to Walpole
Coffee stop - and a piddle stop for Sam - then off to Valley of the giants treetop walk in Tingledale
Then lunch at Ducketts Mill winery - one of our personal favourites
Then off to Denmark for a look around
Drive to Albany - stay at Albany motel and apartments as its right in town and a short walk to restaurants, cafes and a great Steakhouse , we have secured a discounted rate of $172 per night - you need to call and mention the FB/EK Holden tour to secure the rate - 08 9842 7670

Approximate travel distance for the day - 265 km

Day 4 Thursday June 13

Albany whaling station museum in the morning
back to town for lunch and a walk around - theres plenty to see in Albany
Anzac museum in the arvo - worth a look
I am guessing the women will stay in town and look at the shops :roll: and the blokes will go to the museum
Dinner at the steakhouse

Approximate travel distance for the day - 50km

Day 5 Friday June 14

Up early and head off to Kojonup for smoko and a look through an antique shop
Lunch at Quindanning pub
Perth.
approximate travel distance for the day - 435km

Of course any of this is optional - you can do as much or as little as you please , last time we had people peel off and visit mates or look at stuff not on our itinerary , or only do a portion of the trip and bail out early or start late.

OK - accommodation for the Wednesday and Thursday nights
We scored a corporate rate with Albany motels and apartments - $172 per night need to call for the rate to apply and mention FB/EK Holden nationals tour 08 9842 7670. They are busy already and rooms are limited.
