    I am hoping to go to both Old Bar and Valla in 2010. Where are the best places to stay and can anyone recommmend somewhere that I may be able to store by van between the two events ? I thinkn it will be easier time wise to fly rather than scheduling two return trips from Melbourne. I will have my van in storage undercover here in Melbourne once it is completed so am really just after a reputable place to leave it.

    Additionally, can anyone tell me which are the best days to attend both events ?

    Hi Matt
    I dont think Valla is on until next year as it is only every second year, so you will have to wait until 2010 for that one. ( someone correct me if I am wrong)
    We stay at Lanis on the beach at Old Bar
    http://www.lanis.com.au/OLD BAR SITE/frameset LOTB.htm
    Book early as it gets full pretty quick, you have to book three nights. We are booked Fri,Sat,and Sun. The kombi show is Sunday and there is lots of other neat old cars on the Saturday.
    Its a great weekend

    I'm confused...have I jumped in a time machine? We are in 2009 at the moment aren't we so surely last Valla was 2008 and the next will be 2010?
    I'm booking in for Lanis today too...

    There will be a thread closer to October. There is usually a cruise up to Old Bar and as for staying together - there is no set area but there is plenty of us staying there.
