TRAVEL PLAN­NER

4 x 4 Australia - - Event -

WHERE Buck­land and Be­yond was based at Bev­eridge Sta­tion camp­ground in the Buck­land Val­ley, 45km south of Bright; which in turn is 300km north of Mel­bourne and 650km south-west of Syd­ney.

WHEN This event is planned to be held each March.

SUP­PLIES The reg­is­tra­tion fee of $60 per per­son ($5 for chil­dren un­der 15) in­cluded a bar­be­cue din­ner on the first day of the event. Lunch at Payne’s Hut was $50 per per­son. Par­tic­i­pants needed to be self-suf­fi­cient in re­spect to their own food and wa­ter. Bright is the near­est town where food and fuel can be pur­chased.

STAY­ING THERE Par­tic­i­pants are re­quired to make their own camp­ing ar­range­ments. Tents, camper trail­ers and off-road vans are all wel­come. Toi­let fa­cil­i­ties are pro­vided. How­ever, pets are not per­mit­ted.

ROAD CON­DI­TIONS The or­gan­is­ers en­sure all ve­hi­cles (and their driv­ers) on any given trip are ca­pa­ble of the con­di­tions they will en­counter. Any four-wheel drive in stan­dard trim could un­der­take all the trips on the 2016 pro­gram, sub­ject to them hav­ing a min­i­mum of All-ter­rain tyres with 50 per cent tread or bet­ter.
