Come for a drive off the highway through the Otway hills to the iconic Great Ocean Road at Skenes Creek and then drive along part of the more interesting section of the road to Lorne where we will join the inaugural Torquay Motor Show Cruise to Torquay.
This event is open to all, whether you are attending the Torquay Motor Show or not.
Once in Torquay the organisers promise food and drinks at the motor show site - but this will probably be the food vendors on site for the show, so expect burger van style food.
We will meet at the McDonalds/BP on the Geelong ring road which also has Red Rooster and Olivers. There will be time for eat, drink and comfort if you arrive by 10:30am for an 11am departure.
The drive to Kennett River via Forrest and Skene's Creek will take us about 2 hours and cover 142km.
Lunch will be at Kafe Koala at Kennett River. Lunch options are:
- you can pre-order at the meeting point (options here); or
- elect to choose at the counter, (options here). Either way you pay on the day.
We expect to be at the cafe from 1pm until about 2:30pm when we will drive along part of the more interesting section of the Great Ocean Road to Lorne where we will join the cruise to Torquay at about 3pm.
We should be in Torquay by about 4:30pm where food, drinks and entertainment is promised.
If that dining option does not appeal join us at the Torquay Hotel for a bistro style dinner, in the bistro section (not the public bar) at 7pm.
If you are planning to stay overnight in the Torquay area book early - February is still part of their high season and places get booked out quickly. The Torquay Hotel has some accommodation but there are many other options, including the 20 minute drive back into Geelong.
