Australian National Run 2016

5 April 2011
Honda Sports Car Club of Australia – National Run 2016

HSCC is exited to announce the 2016 run. The drive is going to cover the southern end of the Great Dividing Range taking in multiple mountain runs, Great Alpine Road, covering approximately 1500km in both NSW and Victoria.

The run will officially start on Sunday 28 February with an evening at Beechworth for an initial meet and greet. The run will conclude on the evening of Friday 4 March in Bright. Itinerary below gives a basic rundown of the planned route. There will be wineries visited along the way and fine dining. These will be locked in closer to the date once number have been indicated. The proposed route is listed below and may have a few small changes as the event is finalised. If you have been lucky enough to attend either the Tasmanian or South Australian run you know what great events these are. Please spread the word and indicate if you can attend.

Day 1 – 340km
Drive to Corryong for Lunch along the B400. We continue on through to Mt Kosciuszko National Park and to the shores of Jindabyne. After setting in a drive to Charlotte Pass that passes through Perisher Valley along Kosciuszko Road. This ends with a great lookout point, then back down the mountain for some sampling of Snaps from a local manufacturer. The evening will be spent with views over the lake.

Day 2 – 330km
We head off to Lakes Entrance on Snowy River Way and then a short section back on the B23 before heading back inland once we pass through Bombala. A quick stop for lunch at Delegate before heading over the border into Victoria.
The afternoon will be a heading through Bonang, Goongerah and Nurran on the C612. These roads run parallel to the mountains and offer great driving and are rarely travelled. At Orbost we will follow the A1 until our destination for the next two nights at Lakes Entrance.

Day 3 – 250km
There will be a drive to Dargo for lunch but there is also an option to stretch the legs and go on a cruise. Lakes Entrance cruises typically have dolphins, seals, deer, kangaroos and a incredible amount of birdlife to view. The Eco tours also offer an insight to all the flora and fauna in the area.
Lunch will be at the Dargo River Inn and the sealed roads end there so don’t expect much traffic along the way.
Dinner will be overlooking the lakes and a final relaxing night before the big mountain passes.

Day 4 – 330km
We head off to Buchan for a HSCC tradition of a cave tour. From Buchan we get back on the Great Alpine Road and divert at Omeo (stop for lunch) to head up to Anglers Rest. From Angler Rest we are taking the Bogong High Plains Road though Falls Creek and Mount Beauty. From Mount Beauty we head directly to Bright where we will spend the next two nights. These roads travel through the centre of the Great Divide and are noted as some of the best mountain runs that are on offer.

Day 5 – 200km
We will be heading off down through Mt Bright to retrace a section of yesterdays run to Omeo for lunch. From Omeo we will be heading up the major section of Great Alpine Road over Mt Hotham and through to Bright. A quick refresh and a run to Mount Buffalo. This is a 80 km round trip that has the best lookout that Australia has of its mountains. The lookout has 300m vertical cliffs and is not to be missed.

For those that would like to relax Bright offers its own microbrewery, a river swimming area and paragliding or micro flights for those wanting a bird eye view of the mountains. There are also several wineries in the area that will be visited during our travels.

Note that there will be a Day 0 trip from Melbourne to Beechworth. There will be meetup points for those wanting to join from South Australia or Tasmania. The run will take in a few mountain runs and go through Reefton, Marysville, Eildon and Benella. The trip is 400km departing from the eastern suburbs.

Its crunch time for numbers on this run! We have had a great response and Eckers has done a brilliant job putting this together.

The HSCCA Nat Run to the High Country is from Sunday 28 February to Saturday 5 March.

The provisional cost is $500, but this will be firmed up once all the bookings have been completed and we know how many participants there will be. A deposit of $250 per person is required to secure your place on the run. The cost will cover 3 lunches and 3 dinners including the welcome and farewell dinners as well as shirts and tours.

The accommodation cost for the 6 nights is ($910 per room) and will be paid direct by participants. There will be some costs for breakfast lunches and dinners not covered by the participation fee as well as any personal sundries.

We have to confirm bookings at the motels as availability is tight in some locations.

ACTION REQUIRED NOW. We need a deposit of $250 per person into the Club's account by this Friday 15 January.

If you are interested in coming please email me on [email protected] and I will send you a registration form.

Well the Nat Run has been postponed till later in the year due to a number of circumstances. So we will let everyone know the dates as soon as we can, but we are aiming for late Oct hopefully.

The NSW group are still doing their regular runs and us SA's are recovering from Clipsal motoring overload.

The next big run is the McVale Classic on Sun 17th Apr. We meet, drive down the back way and go to Oxenberry Winery for lunch and look at the cars from there.

Cheers Scott

The Honda Sports car Club of Australia is organising another National Run. After our last one to the Wine country, this time it’s to the High Country.

Thank you to those who have lodged deposits and registration forms already. Now we need the rest of those who are interested in coming to complete a registration form and pay their deposits so we can lock in the accommodation.

We will meet in Beechworth (North Eastern Victoria) on Sunday afternoon on 13 November and heading home from Bright on Saturday 19 November.

It looks like being a great run and we hope that many of you will join us.

We need final numbers by Friday 15th July so please contact me ( [email protected] ) to arrange for the Registration form and info sheet to be sent to you.

Kind regards,
