    An event with a difference!


    Join us for our excursion to the snow – by steam train, of course. Forget the car for a relaxed day out with family and friends aboard the Vintage Train.

    Settle back in your compartment and before long, Melbourne will be lost in a trail of steam and smoke as we journey into the fertile farming district of the Latrobe Valley.

    The locomotives will work hard as we climb through the green Gippsland hills around Bunyip, Longwarry and Warragul before we make our first stop at Moe. Here passengers can choose from the following options:

    MOUNT BAW BAW
    Enjoy the journey through to Moe, where you will disembark for travel by comfortable coach through scenic mountain forest to the snow. Explore the alpine forests with their unique fauna and crisp mountain air as you wander through the snow. As this is a full resort, you are able to hire, toboggans, skis and clothing, to use in the snow. Departure from the mountain is at 4:00pm, to return to the station for a 5.30pm departure from Moe.

    EXPLORE WALHALLA
    For those preferring warmer surroundings, travel by comfortable coach through scenic mountain forests to the historic Goldfields town of Walhalla, where you may wish to partake of a Lunch at either the Walhalla Lodge Hotel or the Walhalla Goldfields Railway goods shed for an optional two-course hot lunch (please book your preference).

    After lunch, there is time to explore the historic treasures of Walhalla. The famous ‘Long Tunnel Extended’ gold mine offers underground tours at 1 pm and 2 pm, so you may book this underground tour yourself, but only if you are not doing the optional Lunch and the WGR option; as there isn’t enough time to do all three. Visit the many historic buildings and climb to the cricket ground carved high in the surrounding hills. The cemetery, full of history, has graves carved into the side of a mountain, all within walking distance of this unique mountain township.

    The Walhalla Goldfields Railway will be running a return journey at 3:00pm. We have chartered this trip for our passengers from Walhalla station to Thomson and return, so please book your ticket for this option.

    RAIL ONLY
    Travel through the mysterious Haunted Hills, Hearnes Oak and Morwell before arriving in Traralgon, where you will spend a leisurely afternoon. Enjoy a meal in a local hotel or café. Then relax back on the train as our locomotives begin their sprint westward on a course for home.

    AIR CONDITIONING
    If you wish for a little more travelling comfort, choose the option of cloth seating in an air-conditioned (and heated) carriage. This option is at a small extra cost.  

    ON TRAIN SERVICE
    Our on-train facilities include kiosks, which stock a wide range of light refreshments, souvenirs and hot and cold drinks. A licensed bar will also be open serving a range of wine, beers and spirits. Our courteous train officers will be on hand throughout the journey to provide any assistance to ensure an enjoyable and safe day. 

    Please register using the booking link making sure you choose the train for 4 August.  Please register with us too so we know how many will be attending. 

    If you want to travel with us as a group, mark on your form to be seated with Jo Mawson's group. 

    Pick up points are listed on the registration form. you must arrive 15 minutes prior to departure to avoid missing the train. 

    Spots will fill fast, first in best seated.

    expressions of interest close: August 30

    This year Australia's only internationally rated swanky prestige classic car show reverts to one day per club in the outside "Club Sandwich" display.

    The cars inside will on display for the full 3 days as before.

    This is your chance to join the outdoor display and gain free entry to the main event inside!

    Cars will be required to enter on Sunday morning (exact bump in time will be supplied later) as a car club group - so we will meet up close by before driving into the display.

    Cars will be required to remain in place until the end of the show at approximately 5pm on Sunday.  


    Club Sandwich is open to any car of any age. If we are over subscribed we will choose cars which best reflect BMW's heritage and narrative, which may mean selecting a modern car rather than an older one. The final choice is, however, made by the organisers.

    All selected members will get free tickets to all 3 days of the exhibition.

    WE ONLY HAVE 15 SPOTS, SO AT THIS STAGE WE ARE SEEKING EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST.

    Confirmation of places is expected to be at the end of September.

    8 Fest Display 


    We are proud to announce that this year we will be holding our 8 Fest in conjunction with the Geelong Revival Festival of Speed.

    Sunday 24 November  

    BMWDCM Car display

    We will bring out our finest non-8 series BMWs to celebrate 40 years on BMW Australia.


    The Geelong Revival Motoring Festival revives the excitement and spectacle of the original Geelong sprints first run in 1956 and modelled on famous Brighton UK Speed Trials. Held on and around the Geelong Waterfront, the course is as picturesque as it is practical. The quarter-mile sprint is held along Ritchie Boulevarde and the track is lined along one side by The Hill. Forming a natural grandstand.

    After not running for 8 years, the event was once revived in 2012 with an emphasis on the past history of vintage motorsport. Be it car and motorcycle racing, vintage caravans, car cruising, retro and vintage fashion - the Geelong Revival Motoring Festival is a celebration of motoring culture.

    Be sure to come and show off your car - any BMW any age as long as its clean and watch the sprints and other displays and activities.  

    Because our display area can not be accessed once competition starts cars MUST be in place before 9am and cannot be removed under any circumstances until after 5pm.
