    The Geelong Musuem of Motoring (Western Height Secondary College, Waymouth Street, Hamlyn Heights - just 5 minutes off the Geelong Ring Road) has just reopened after nearly 3 years without a home.  Now housed in unused carpeted school rooms the Ford Musuem collection has been incorporated into the musuem.

    We will then have afternoon tea/coffee in the Cafe on Vines, a short walk across the car park in the neighbourhood shops.


    You then have the choice to stay and have dinner later on at the Torquay Hotel (see menu here).

    A further choice to stay overnight ready for the Torquay Motor Show on the Sunday (please book your own rooms, hotel bookings are hard to find in Torquay at this time so we have not been able to hold rooms, but the Torquay Hotel has motel rooms available at the moment at $180 per room - ph: 03 5261 2001)
