Fraser Coast Mini-Motortrail - 4th June 2011

 

 

The annual Fraser Coast Mini-MotorTrail is a 1-day tag-a-long tour loosely modeled on the format of the 10-day Just4Kids Motortrail, for which we are raising funds.

Register to be part of the day, and we will take you over a variety of roads and tracks for a tour of our region - well, some of it anyway.

You will be given a set of route instructions that will guide you through a number of legs and deliver you to interesting locations and challenging ... well, challenges.

Along the way, your observational skills will be tested via a series of questions, with responses to be submitted at the stops as you go. You may even win a prize or two!

The roads travelled do include dirt and gravel. A 4wd vehicle will make the trip a bit more comfortable, but a low-range gearbox will not be required.

Note: This event is not a rally, and it is not a race. The Fraser Coast Mini-Motortrail is a casual, fun day out while doing some local touring. Please drive accordingly, with due care to other road users.

The venue is licensed, with a selection of wine, beer and spirits available for purchase (until midnight, but don't forget that you may still need to drive the next day).

Dingo Creek Winery will not charge for camping, and provides a flushing toilet but not shower facilities. Grassed campsites can be chosen around the shelter and amenities, or you can move further away where small fires are permitted (BYO firewood).

Dingo Creek can be contacted by calling (07) 5485 1731, however the owners will be taking a well-earned break following their Jazz & Blues Festival. General details can be found on their website: www.dingocreek.com.au

Sunday is your choice, we are not organising this! You can stay for a relaxing morning at the Winery, a Bush Tucker Workshop at the Winery can be organised if there are sufficient numbers interested, you could visit Montville and its surrounds, or spend the day at Noosa, or head home via the beach from Teewah to Rainbow Beach if the tides are suitable for you (permits are required - a group permit is needed if you have a group of 3 vehicles or more).
