    After admiring lovely Kombis down here at present the thought came ,,any body interested in a weekend in Feb or March 2017. Bookings are not required, weather is better and best of all...not many people around. I live and work here so can get us all close together. surf, sunshine ,b.b.q's and some liquid refreshment while we catch up with old friends and make some new ones. let me know when suits and if your keen. All VW's welcomed as are people that love them...and who doesn't. Lets see if we can make this happen. Mick

    Depending on the date we would definitely be keen.
    Haven't been to Wilsons Promontory for years and would love to get back there.
    Great spot and fun waves :)

    Hi Mick
    I was one of the group of vw's you met at the prom the other day (blue westfalia with Westy tent). It truly was a beautiful place to visit and my wife and would love to return especially if it was in a larger group. Can you please post the best dates to return and we will let you know if we can make it?

    Wow ,great response...many thanks. Mmmm dates, lets go for February 11th and 12th or 18th and 19th (really anything in Feb would suit) but lets go with these and see how it works with those that are keen. Weather is what ever we get but the camp will be a tad less busy. Will try to get some of the larger sites, cheaper if you get 2 kombis on one site, and somewhere to ourselves. So see how you go and as I said ....dates are optional but depending on interest I will lock in a weekend asap . Stay tuned and if you need any further info Mick 0419113537

    Hi Jerome , still fairly busy most weekends down here so may have to postpone till after Easter. If you still feel like chancing it then post some dates that suit you and we shall see if it stirs up some interest. Will keep the idea open and hopefully we can make it happen. Cheers Mick:)

    Easter we will be at Bus Stop which is being held this year at Swansea ,Lake Macquarie ..
    Also 1st of April we will be in the Hunter Valley to see Blondie .
    so it really has to be sometime this month to suit us.

    Hi Mick ....sorry but we are going to be in Tumut NSW that weekend...we are taking a slow and easy road trip to Bus Stop...
    if you want to see lots of kombi and meet heaps of people who are on this forum..
    you should plan to get to one.
    every year at Easter... ...its held a differant venue each year.....this year at Swansea ,Lake McQuarrie NSW..
    i dont think its ever been held at Wilsons Prom
    cheers Jerome
