Melbourne Branch Odyssey
13th to 15th October 2023

The annual Melbourne Branch get together will be celebrated at Mansfield Holiday Park which is located off the Mt Buller Road in picturesque Mansfield. Accommodation available includes a variety of cabins, plus large powered/unpowered campsites on which it would be feasible to set up several tents to enhance camaraderie.
Following a couple of years of disappointment due to Covid, last year’s event was a roaring success with close to fifty members and guests joining us for dinner.
The meal on Saturday night will again be at the Mansfield Golf Club. A complimentary minibus will transport us there and back. We will have an informal BBQ on the Friday night, BYO drinks and food, for a relaxed night of camaraderie.
