Come ride The Oxley Highway with us and about 25 other FJ1100/1200's - staying at Mount Seaview Resort on 16/17th March 2024.
There is also provision for a Sunday afternoon BBQ for those who wanted to stay the extra night.
Next step is to get your $50 deposit paid (phone 02 6587 7255) and confirm any additional nights accommodation such as Thursday 14th March and Sunday 17th March, and subsequent meals such as brekky Friday morning (15th) and/or brekky Monday morning (18th).
Don't delay do your booking today
Total cost is dependent on how many nights you decide to stay, but for example if you are only staying the 2 nights plus 2 x breakfast and 2 x dinner the cost is $312 - share a room with someone and cost will come down further:
Room is $112 per night
brekky $10 per morning
2 course dinner $34 per night
Options for the ladies include a sunset champagne safari on the Saturday and/or lunchtime Sunday via quad bikes and/or luxury 4WD vehicle. Or jump in a car together and head over to the lovely quaint little town of Walcha and check out the sites along the way.

That's good to hear Fred, as you probably know Facebook has taken over from many forums so your post more than likely wn't get seen by most. Once people are aware you're coming I'm sure they'll have a bike ready and welcome you with open arms like previous visitors. I normally don't do rally's mainly because of previous work commitments plus the distance involved in getting there, but did happen to meet Cap'n Ron at Glenn Sully's man shed day when he came over. I'm retired now so will have to wait and see what happens.

Can I ask why they move rally dates from early March to late March?

Can't we keep it around the same time, give or take a week but not 2.

Sorry I'm ranting but other things on around same time seem to stay the same time except this.

I won't be attending but I wish I could, very disappointed, again.

Hi Mate
So it comes down to availability of venue etc. The date was vote for on FB. Most other events use the same venue each year but the FJ rally moves around and has different organizers each year as well.

Righto fellas, just about ready to leave.

Just a small problem, I buggered my back in the garden on the weekend, so I'll be cage riding with a trailer  :unknown: .
Not the way I would prefer, but at least I'm still showing up and can do the ride day, and catch cup with the crew.

That's Terrible news Troy.
Hope it's a Great Turnout and Safe Travels All.
Few happy snaps on the way but it seems my navigator has been taking my the wrong direction and I'm now 1637k's off course and actually gone out of NSW through Victoria and am now in South Aust, well that's a bit awkward.You cannot view this attachment.You cannot view this attachment.You cannot view this attachment.You cannot view this attachment.You cannot view this attachment.You cannot view this attachment.You cannot view this attachment.You cannot view this attachment.You cannot view this attachment.You cannot view this attachment.
