May 2016 Drive to Bendigo

The monthly May drive was held on Saturday May 14th, kicking off from Stiggants Reserve in Warrandyte at 9am. After some chit chat and MINI gazing the group took off to the second meeting point in Wallan.

Ten MINIs were on todays run, lots of new F56 MINIs and even a few new faces on their first clubMINI run!

The convoy headed towards Bendigo, taking in the Northern Highway, the exceptional and very twisty road from Wallan to Romsey (did you know that some of the original Mad Max was actually filmed out in this part of the world? Pretty cool!) and then onto the Melbourne - Lancefield Road enroute to Kyneton via more scenic countryside roads.

The next and very photogenic stop was at Lake Eppalock

After the Lake Eppalock stop, the group headed off towards Bendigo. This stage of the run was approximately 41 kilometres of country driving to the city centre of Bendigo.

Once at Bendigo the group enjoyed breakfast and the sights of Bendigo at their own leisure, some even visited the Bendigo Art Gallery to see the Marilyn Monroe exhibition.

All in today the group travelled around 185 kilometres from Warrandyte to Bendigo.

  2. My daughter tried for driver's license but she couldn’t get that. Now I have decided to enroll her in a professional Port Macquarie Driving School. I think after proper training she will definitely get license. If you have any tips then please share!
