The MOA has had a presence on the same camping area "FARAWAY BEACH" since 1982.
It is a full camping experience—no running water, electricity etc. but there is a “dunny”. Take in everything you need and take out all your rubbish. We’re in the Barmah State forest so there are koalas and kangaroos and many other native beasties etc.
See page 18 Dec Tracks for a map and details on how to get there

The annual Moke Ocean Road cruise is on again and to avoid usual frustrating crawl along the GOR in the mornings we will be heading inland to Apollo Bay and then coming along the GOR on the way back in the afternoon, so something a little different to the usual schedule of events.
The meeting point is the BP Service Centre at Little River on the southbound side with a departure time of 9am sharp and remember it is a Saturday trip. Ensure you have topped up your fuel at Little River before we leave as there could be a few unscheduled routes taken during the day.
For a change we are going to follow the highway down to Winchelsea to do a bit of browsing in the antique/junk shops where I managed to snag a couple of bargains for my collections last year so I want to go back again. From there we cut across through Forrest with a stop at the Wonky Donkey Hotel for a photo shoot and look around. From there we continue on down towards Apollo Bay via the scenic and twisty little roads in the hills before dropping out at Skenes Creek. The Moke Ocean Road will be the return leg coming back towards Melbourne.
Lunch and snack stops are TBA on the day as we progress.

After the resounding success of the 2017 Wellington Vintage Fair trip we are lining up to do it again! A no-fuss, no-stress weekend in the beautiful Central West of NSW, spreading the joy of Mokes and encouraging existing local owners out there to get their cars ready for the next event. It is a very casual event, people joining in with whatever events they want, sorting out their own accommodation, arriving and departing as they please.(Basically meaning there is no organising required!). info next issue of Tracks.
