Post-Alfesta Tour 18-20 April

Join us for the post-Alfesta touring rallyIf you have enjoyed Alfesta 2022, it doesn't have to end on Monday!

A post-Alfesta Tour has been organised for you to take the long way home. 

Please note that this is not an official part of Alfesta and you will need to book and pay separately to the Tour

Overview

Join a select group of like-minded Alfisti for three days on a leisurely journey through the hinterland, over the Great Dividing Range, first taking the Oxley Highway, a favourite of motorcyclists, on the morning of Easter Monday to Armidale for lunch at Petersons Guesthouse and Winery and then taking one of NSW’s top tourist roads, the fittingly-named Waterfall Way to our overnight stop in Bellingen. On Day 2 we will head to Dorrigo and then Grafton before taking the Gwydir Highway west to Glen Innes and then north to Tenterfield for our second overnight stop. The Bruxnor Highway welcomes us on day 3, with morning tea in Casino and lunch at the Two Tails Winery, before finishing in Coffs Harbour.

There is no requirement to do the full tour and you can choose to travel as a group or stop off at things of interest, making use of the provided route instructions. An example of a reduced touring route would be to take a day sight-seeing around Port Macquarie before joining us for dinner in Bellingen on the Monday night, and then doing the full day 2 drive before heading home from Tenterfield on the Wednesday morning.

A small administration fee may apply for participants [still TBD] to cover administration costs and any deposits paid by the organisers for advance reservations at restaurants.

Participants will book and pay for their accommodation at the selected accommodation as well as all meals on the day unless otherwise advised. Where possible the aim is to give you all maximum choice on where to stay and what to eat while enjoying north-east NSW.

There are only a few hotels listed in Bellingen, ranging from Diggers Tavern ($150 per night) to the Bellingen Valley Lodge ($280+), but there are other options such as sharing one of the Bella Vista’s houses with other tourists or and there are several Airbnb hosts in town. For the night of 19 April, Tenterfield has several standard (not Super or Veloce trim) motel offerings, and a couple of Gold Cloverleaf choices such as the Commercial Boutique Hotel.
