Torquay Accommodated Trip: King’s Birthday Weekend

Closed

Trip Overview

A 3 night accommodated trip staying in self-contained rental houses in the Torquay area. The houses are self contained – there are supermarkets in Torquay but also numerous other meal options.

There will be 2 full day & 1 1/2 day walks walking sections of the surf coast covering Torquay, Anglesea, Bells Beach, etc.

Sunday night dinner will be an optional group pub meal or similar. (Cost not included.)

 

Accommodation

Two rental houses have been booked for the 3 nights (from Friday 7th June). Room configurations vary but will comprise a mix of doubles, singles, and bunks beds. A maximum of 2 people will be allocated to each room. Maximum occupancy is around 13 total for the 2 houses (subject to the number of couples).

Prospective attendees have the option to book their own accommodation once these places are fully allocated.
