    MELBOURNE APUG OUTING No. 4: MARCH 2013

    Okay. Time for an early Autumnal outing.

    I've outlined a couple of options in the poll for location and dates. If you can choose one and then elaborate in a written response your rational, I think that we'll be able to shortlist options pretty quickly.

    I have set this up so that multiple choice is permitted, to allow us to see options a little better.

    Hope to go somewhere that actually affords me a chance to fire off at least one shot!

    Lachlan.

    March 9-10th is my choice for a bush-bash someplace, but it's also the Labor Day long weekend which means we will have company wherever we go, no doubt. EXCEPT if we go into the deepest, darkest Otways (where at this time regrettably there is very little water for waterfalls and water bodies...)

    My preference is for late March, this should allow for cooler weather and less people around, plus the sky should hopefully be clear of smoke from bush fires.

    I'm assuming the closing date of the poll is an American date, if not then it is closing a tad too late!

    You'd probably get filthy, sweaty, battered and bruised, so you don't go down in them thar myrtle glooms "just for a snapshot", but to create a lasting work of art to fully justify the effort. I do like to see a bit of suffering for art.

    Other ideas...
    If there's a quorum, we could do a weekend trip to Portland, and do studies of both the quirky "petrified forest" (along with the splendidly spectacular vertical black cliffs nearby) and the ruggedly 'out there' Cape Nelson Lightstation.

    Serendipitously, I'm running a recon trip down there this weekend.

    Apart from these 2 places, I'm also going hunting for some sand dunes out past Bridgewater near Mt Richmond National Park.

    Long way to go, though...

    Ja. You can find dunes and swales in Big Drift, just outside Wilsons Promontory National Park. A little chestnut project I have in the pipeworks...

    One inland possibility is Melville Caves north west from Bendigo, about 180 klm's from Melbourne.

    If you click on a picture you can then scroll through a fair assortment of scenes available to us.

    Should help those who live north of Melbourne and those who may wish to camp or find a local bedsit.

    Mick.
