Activities & Outings

Each month, there is a Club excursion event to a place or places of interest, with the emphasis on learning, discovery and socialising. In December, this takes the form of a special Christmas lunch.

Once a year a trip may be planned that involves several days away, outside of Melbourne or beyond Victoria.

Activities are planned by the Committee, and are advertised through the general meetings, the newsletter and this website. In all of the Club’s activities, we are mindful of cost. The committee works hard to arrange interesting quality events that are affordable for members.
