DAY 2 Monday October 5, 2020 Lorne
This morning we collect our Ford Mustangs and travel down the Princes Highway to Geelong, a town with a fascinating history in the automotive and manufacturing industry. We visit the Geelong Museum of Motoring & Industry, home of an impressive collection of motor vehicles and pays tribute to the industry and manufacturing heritage of Geelong. Geelong was once one of the largest manufacturing hubs in Australia and has been the home to the likes of Ford and International Harvester. We then drive to Anglesea and join the Great Ocean Road on our journey to Lorne, one of Victoria’s quintessential seaside holiday retreats where we spend the night. This evening enjoy a welcome dinner to celebrate the start of our tour.

Today we will continue our drive down the Great Ocean Road, visiting the Otway National Park and Port Campbell. We will have time to see the famous 12 Apostles and other spectacular rock formations before arriving in Warrnambool.
DAY 4 Wednesday October 7, 2020 Melbourne
This morning we depart Warrnambool and take the inland route back to Melbourne. After returning our cars we visit Dutton’s Garage, one of the world’s premium retailers of classic, collectable, exotic and rare cars. We will enjoy a guided tour of the facility and learn why Dutton’s Garage has been synonymous with the Australian racing community for over 60 years.
DAY 5 Thursday October 8, 2020 Melbourne
This morning we enjoy the official kick-off to the Motorclassica’s weekend festival of historic motoring, with more than 70 cars and motorcycles travelling in convoy through Melbourne’s picturesque city and surrounds. Tour Classica will start at Alexandra Autos, directly opposite Birrarung Marr and the Rod Laver Arena, on the south bank of the Yarra River. With uninterrupted views of the city skyline and King’s Domain, this is the perfect chance to see these cars and motorcycles for the first time together before heading along their route to their final destination at the Royal Exhibition Building. Later we will visit The Healy Factory. In an era where the average workshop believes a ‘thorough check over’ is done by plugging in a computer and ‘repairing’ something means replacing it, it is no wonder The Healey Factory has become the Service, Restoration and Repair Centre Classic Car owners turn to. Since the 70s The Healey Factory has grown from a backyard enthusiast operation to a Professional Sales, Service, Parts and Restoration/Accident Repair facility. We will enjoy a guided tour of the factory and learn why the Healy Factory is a destination for many classic automobile enthusiasts seeking to restore their vehicle. This evening we will attend the very exclusive Motorclassica cocktail party at the Royal Exhibition Building, and enjoy a special preview of the weekend’s activities.
