Celebrating 100 years of Alvis – The 2019 “Down Under” Centenary Tour –  20/3/19-7/4/19

            Tour Update: September 2017 from Maritta Parsell

Having received a good number of expressions of interest from both international and local Alvis enthusiasts The 2019 Down-Under Centenary Tour is definitely going ahead and full scale planning has commenced.

We are busy contacting a variety of good quality accommodations and have hit the road to start mapping out the route.

We have slightly altered the previously published route now avoiding Victoria’s High Country as there was likely to be cross over with the areas being visited by the 2019 National Rally.

This tour will take at total of 19 days starting from Melbourne heading up and over the Warburton Ranges, east along the scenic Victorian coast, trekking north along the New South Wales Sapphire coast, then up into the stunning Blue Mountains, inland through western NSW then back down visiting our nation’s capital – Canberra, then through the snowy mountains finishing in Albury – the start of the 2019 National Rally.

The aim of this tour is to enjoy comfortable motoring through some of the most picturesque regions in South Eastern Australia.

The full cost cannot yet be determined as all accommodation and meal costs have not yet been confirmed.  Unfortunately venues will not commit to a price this far out from the event date but have at least taken our tentative booking.  We should have an indication of the final cost by early 2018.

We are asking for a first instalment of $500 by 30 November 2017 to lock in your entry.  This first instalment will be fully refundable should you change your mind and decide not to participate.

For those wishing to only attend specific parts of the tour we will publish the tour program in the early part of 2018 and you can let us know your drop in and drop out dates.  We will then advise you of the associated cost based on your selected portion of the tour.

It is important to note that the 2019 National Rally is taking place in Albury (where this tour will finish).  It is a separate event.  You will need to register and pay separately for 2019 National Rally.
