Here it is, Melbourne Meet MkII



The Route

We'll be following johnr's excellent-looking Gippsland route starting at a nice high profile meet point: The Village Green on the corner of Springvale Rd and Ferntree Gully Rd. The plan is then to shoot out the Princess Freeway in the direction of Pakenham and then the Pakenham and Hallam bypasses to capitalise on the photo opporutnities in the area. The plan is to then head south towards Koo Wee Rup and along the flowing and scenic roads from Lang Lang to Korumburra. From Korumburra, we'll head north along more flowing and scenic roads to Warragul where we'll stop for lunch. From Warragul we'll keep heading north towards Noojee and into the tightening mountain roads to Yarra Junction. At Yarra Junction the people who're feeling up to it can head up to Warburton to enjoy the *ahem* scenery at Mt Donna Buang. From there it's a quiet and easy cruise back into the city through Lilydale.

This cruise is about the same length as the last one. The roads however are not as tight so average speeds should be higher making overall time a fraction shorter.

What to bring: Full tank of juice, 2-way radio, camera, some money for a counter lunch.

We had a pretty good response last time, please RSVP in this thread and I'll make a list of people coming. If the turn out is good I'll have to make a lunch booking again like I did last time!

Alrighty, lock me in as a "possible, almost definately".

I'm not familiar with the meeting point area. Is the village green the south-west corner of that intersection?
