HILL END RANCH

Range Rover Club 40th Birthday Long Weekend

 

Join your fellow Club members to celebrate our Club's 40th birthday.

 

We have booked the entire Hill End Ranch for the Queen's Birthday long weekend. Sleep in a vintage 1927 first-class railway carriage, or in a miners' cottage, or in individual rooms. There are hot showers and flush toilets. Or bring your van, trailer, or tent and enjoy the snows of June in Hill End.

 

Various day trips are planned, from serious 4WD trails to easy blacktop driving. Suitable for all Land Rovers. The trip is dog friendly so bring your Other Rover.  The Ranch can provide hot breakfasts and dinners. We will have a trivia night dinner on the Saturday.

 

Contact Richard for more information and to book.

MOUNTAIN BIKING at AIRLY GAP

 

Join the Limberts for a mountain bike ride along fire trails at Airly Gap near Capertee.  If you don't have a bike bring your shoes and walk instead.

Meeting near Lithgow, we'll travel to Capertee then on to Mugil Murum-ban State Conservation Area. Leaving the vehicles at the camping area we will make our way, bikes or walking, along the fire trails to Airly Gap.  Along the way we will see the beautiful pagodas and canyons, endangered plants and shale mining ruins.

The pace will be relaxed as we are new to mountain biking.  A hundred years ago Airly Gap was part of Airly Village, a small community of shale miners and their families.

An added bonus is Guido Van Helton will have finished painting the Portland Silos by then.  Also the Signs of Yesteryear are a feature of Portland's Wolgan St and make interesting viewing.

This trip is kid friendly but no dogs please.  If you are interested in camping there are some options.

 

Contact Dennis for more information and to book.
