Outings

Outings are arranged on the second Tuesday  of each alternate month. Outings to a place of interest, which might occupy a morning or a full day, almost always include a luncheon together. Outings are well supported.

The first outing for 2023 will be on Tuesday 14th February. We will travel by train to Woodend, catching the 10:06 am Bendigo train from Southern Cross Station. If you wish to use your Seniors Card for travel, you are advised to arrive early to arrange your ticket. We will return by an afternoon train after lunching at the Victoria Hotel, Woodend.

The final outing for 2022 was a special afternoon tea and show (“The Abba Duo”) at Windy Hill, Essendon in  November.

Due to the Club trip away, based at Howlong, NSW, there was no outing in September 2022.

In July 2022, there was a coach trip for buffet lunch at The Highlander Hotel, Craigieburn.

In May 2022, there was a bus and rail excursion, particularly to the Kerrisdale Mountain Railway and Museum in the foothills of the Tallarook Ranges.

The first outing for 2021 was held in May. This was a coach and ferry trip around Port Phillip Bay, deferred from 2020. We travelled to Geelong for morning tea, then it was a short hop to Queenscliff to board the ferry to Sorrento. Lunch was at the Rye RSL, before we set off from the Mornington Peninsula back to Melbourne. For more photos please click here.
