Mid-Week Social Escape

Hunter Valley - Tamworth - Bathurst

Tuesday 17 September to Friday 20 September


We have received numerous suggestions from members that a mid-week drive would be a welcome addition to our regular one-day lunch drives and weekends away. Thus, we have organised a three-night September spring drive to take in the Hunter & Upper Manning Valleys, plus the lower New England, Mudgee and Bathurst regions.  Mid-week allows us to avoid the normal heavy weekend traffic and avail ourselves to off-season accommodation packages. 

This social event will commence with an out-of-town afternoon or evening meeting point in the Hunter Valley, embrace good scenic country driving roads on both Wednesday & Thursday. All this, coupled with the best accommodation available, including breakfasts and fully catered first-class dinners, will make an opportunity for a great mid-week spring escape.

This is a complete packaged event. Dinner, Accommodation and Breakfast for all 3 nights have already been booked and is all included in the price to be paid at registration. This is not a budget event, so, indulge yourself this spring with like-minded Club members while letting your Porsche loose. Basically, everything has been done for you, so no need to plan where to go, when to go, selecting where to stay and where to eat. Just register & pay online then pack your bags, fuel up the Porsche and meet in the Hunter Valley. 

We are ‘testing the waters’ of this our 1st mid-week, multiple overnight stays event. With the constraints of country accommodation and catering, it has been necessary to restrict participant numbers on this event to 16 couples (32 people). The club has booked and pre-paid 16 rooms at each venue plus 32 dinner guests.Therefore, the first 16 couples to register & pay for this event will enjoy what promises to be a wonderful few days.

Registration closes 31st July or once all positions have been filled. 

Like our Motorsport brothers and sisters who compete at the Bathurst 6 Hour event over Easter, this event is restricted to Porsche vehicles only.


Day 1 – Tuesday. Make your own way from home to The Kirkton Park in the Hunter Valley, where your accommodation has been taken care of. Arrive any time after 2pm (check-in) and later meet in the bar before a complimentary pre-dinner wine tasting experience and then dinner in the Manor Garden. 

Day 2 – Wednesday. Following breakfast, we will meander north through the greater Hunter Valley before heading up Bucketts Way and through the upper Manning on Thunderbolts Way before our nightly rest at Tamworth’s Quality Hotel Powerhouse where King rooms await. A sumptuous three-course dinner will top off the day. 

Day 3 – Thursday. Again, we will be treated to a hearty country breakfast to set up our day. Some easy driving to Gunnedah, south to Mudgee and then on to Rydges Mount Panorama, Bathurst for our final dinner, bed and breakfast.

Day 4 – Friday. You are free to make your own way home, or we can suggest several alternatives if your passion for driving has not waned. 


All three nights of luxury accommodation are part of the package included in the price at registration.


Dinners on all three nights are part of the package included in the price at registration. Members will be able to purchase beverages at each venues bar.

Lunch and other pit stops will be scheduled on the drive notes in towns with options of pubs, café’s, bakeries etc. Our route will not see numerous or high-quality eateries, so we encourage flexibility to meet your mood.  Remember to leave plenty of room for your gourmet dinner. Cost is not included in the registration price.

Breakfast for the 3 mornings is part of the accommodation package.

The Package Price is $1,150 per couple
