Greetings

So obviously 19 May won't work, but I'd be up for hiking trips in the not too distant future. Probably mid-June or so.

This coming weekend's not good for me? How about the one after - as in Sunday 16 June?

I don't have a car either, but could sort out a rental.

Thanks for having me! I actually live in Gippsland so I can just drive in and meet you guys :)

Car rental is $40, pick up in the city at 9. Petrol I don't know, maybe $30 or $40 is my estimate?

So in the $20 to $25 per person range, depending on if there are three or four in the car.

Hi Jessica! I do have a car but I would be driving in from Morwell (not Melbourne!) Sorry about that :(

Let's aim to meet at 9:45 in Russell Court, which is the extension of Russell Street behind Fed Square. Seems to be a good enough enough place to just drive through and pick people up, and there should be some street parking nearby on the off chance it's necessary.

See here for location: https://maps.google.com.au/maps?q=russell+court+melbourne&hl=en&sll=-35.295026,149.123976&sspn=0.034677,0.084543&hnear=Russell+Ct,+Melbourne+Victoria+3000&t=m&z=16

Jemimah, since you'll be meeting us at the park, what's the best way to coordinate?

I'd suggest someplace other than Flinders Street to meet, just because options to park there are limited.

North Melbourne Station could work. Decent enough parking availability, on the Craigieburn line (which should be good for Sabrina), and not far out of the city. It's a little bit out of the way from where we're going, but not bad.

I'm getting the car at 9 AM, on Franklin Street in the city.

Looks like it's about a two hour drive to Tooronga Falls from Melbourne.

Executive decision is Russell Court at 9:45.

Sounds obscure, but it's easy to find. See map below. From Flinders Street Station, walk down Flinders Street past Fed Square, and Russell Court is the first right - it's an extension of Russell Street.

See here for location: https://maps.google.com.au/maps?q=russell+court+melbourne&hl=en&sll=-35.295026,149.123976&sspn=0.034677,0.084543&hnear=Russell+Ct,+Melbourne+Victoria+3000&t=m&z=16

Any issues tomorrow, I'm on 0435 026 366.
