SEPTEMBER 10th. CLUB RUN & MEETING, RICKETTS RESERVE in the DANDENONGS.
Today we are off to the Dandenong’s, specifically Mt. Dandenong. After meeting at Upper Ferntree Gully, in the carpark of the Maxi Supermarket at 10am, we will head up the Dandenong’s and stop off at the beautiful William Ricketts Sanctuary for a wander around for an hour or so. Take a camera, as the reserve is stunning and beautiful. Then it will be off to a local café for some lunch. See page 23 for details.
SEPTEMBER, SUNDAY 24th. CLUB RUN.
A run with a bit of a difference. Meet at Gary and Sues for a short run to Moonlit Sanctuary, Tyabb-Tooradin Road. This is the best place around to see our Aussie Animals. Meet kangaroos, wombats, dingoes, colourful birds, koalas and make sure you take photos! Wander through the bush food garden, smelling the unique aromas of the bush tucker plants. The ambience of Moonlit Sanctuary, eco-accredited, and set in natural bushland places it in a class of its own. On site café for those who need a coffee hit and a bit of bush tucker food, as well as normal food for the soft hearted. Admission charge is $20 adult or $18 seniors. Price will be negotiated on the number of members who come along and will be partly subsidised by the club.
OCTOBER, SUNDAY 15th. CLUB RUN
We are off today to the RAAF Base at Point Cook for a tour and lunch at this magnificent museum. Further details in future newsletters but it promises to be one great day out and is a run that has been on my mind for quite some time.
