to warm sunny Queensland

Michelle Sahu-Kan

All the boxes have been ticked:

  • Scenic, twisty driving roads!
  • First-class accommodation for nine nights!
  • Seven delicious dinners and hearty breakfasts to start your day!

All you need to do is pack your bags and fuel up your Porsche.

The Adventure Basics:

This big event was originally scheduled for June, 2020, but, like many things in this crazy new world had to be cancelled due to Covid-19 restrictions and QLD border closures.

Planning for the re-scheduled dates is well underway, with agreements made with all the originally intended venues.

Itinerary:

Wednesday  - 28th April 2021  Hunter Valley - Meeting Point & 1st Night - Kirkton Park

Thursday – 29th April                 Tamworth - Powerhouse Hotel         

Friday  - 30th April                             Coffs Harbour - Opal Cove

Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd May       Gold Coast, Qld – Intercontinental, Sanctuary Cove

Monday 3rd and Tuesday 4th May       Sunshine Coast – Sofitel, Noosa Heads

Wednesday 5th May                            Kingscliffe - Peppers Salt Hotel

Thursday 6th May                                Port Macquarie - Final Night - Sails Hotel

Top notch dinners have been arranged at the venues we are staying in, except for both free days, at Sanctuary Cove & Noosa Heads. Breakfast has also been arranged, again except the two free days. The intent for the totally free days is to explore other options that abound in these vibrant locations.

We have six days of driving the best roads found in the areas the journey will take us through. A nice mix of roads can be expected, from mountain bends, flat plateau, meandering country and highway. All will be sealed (of course, unless roadwork is encountered).

Comprehensive drive notes will be provided for you, which you are free to follow, join a convoy, drive solo or even make your own route. Most days there will be a shorter, more direct route or highway to get you to the next accommodation if you don’t wish to follow the plan. It is your holiday, so flexibility is offered.

Our planned notes and route will have us arriving at our new venue around 3pm, after about 5 hours of actual driving (some less, some a little more) plus various pit stops along the way - so plenty of time to relax a while before the night’s gathering at the bar & nightly dinners.

The current position, given COVID-19, is that holding deposits have been placed with all seven venues, which is necessary for such a large group taking both accommodation and meals. Simply put, if we (The Club) cancel we stand to lose all or part of funds paid. However, if restrictions (including QLD border closures) are in place for the time of our event and force majeure invoked, then those deposits should be refunded.

Given our event is nearly three months away it is still likely everything planned to date will proceed. If we can’t go to Queensland but we are able to travel within NSW, and it is considered safe to do so, we will still do the first three nights.

Whatever the case, any funds paid by members for events/venues that do not proceed will be refunded, irrespective if The Club’s deposit is withheld.

Pricing has been kept the same as the original event - $3,500 per couple, covering all nine night’s accommodation, seven dinners, seven breakfasts and all planned stuff like drive notes etc etc and maybe a few surprises (pleasant, of course).

If you are interested in taking part on this holiday escape please contact Michelle at membership@pcnsw.com.au as soon as possible to indicate your registration and make a 50% deposit payment direct to the Club’s bank account (below). Registration will close on 26th March, or before, if the event becomes full. Final payment will be required by 31st March.

Event limited to 30 Porsche cars.
