SOUTH AUSTRALIAN

LAND ROVER OWNER SHOW

 

Our Club will once again join the Land Rover Register of South Australia for their annual Land Rover Show over the Easter long weekend. Camping is available in the Melrose Showground, with both powered and non-powered sites available.

 

Melrose stands at the foot of the Flinders Ranges, a spectacularly pretty part of Australia, offering great 4WD adventures. The Show will provide three days of varied events, including tag-along trips on tracks normally closed to the public, an adventure track to test our diff-lock-on skills, and car trials on a specially-designed track.  Saturday night dinner in a huge marquee.  We will have ample time to explore the local wineries and other points of interest.

 

The plan is for a leisurely drive, commencing on the Tuesday and arriving at Melrose around lunchtime on the Thursday for an unhurried daylight camp setup. The convoy will either drive via Hay / Mildura, or Nyngan / Broken Hill.  The trip is suitable for all Land Rover models, caravans are OK, and is dog friendly.

 

Anyone wishing to continue heading West after Melrose can join Richard on a proposed trip to Broome via the Nullarbor.

 

The Show has registration and camping fees, with early-bird discounts closing on 28 February.

Details are at www.lrregsa.org.au/land-rover-show-2019.

Contact Richard for more information and to book.
