Let's do some day trips!
Posted July 8th, 2013 - 4:03 am by from Melbourne, Australia (Permalink)
Hi everyone,
I just recently found this article and thinking to organise some day trips around Melb. Maybe 1-2 times per month.

'Get outta town: top 10 Melbourne day trips'

http://www.theage.com.au/travel/activity/drives/get-outta-town-top-10-melbourne-day-trips-20110125-1a3y3.html

I'm keen to check out Healesville first (but open to options).

Sundays are the only day I'm free, but can leave around 3 or 4pm on a Saturday arvo for an overnight trip if necessary.

I have a car, you are welcome if you are willing to share the petrol cost.

Cheers and leave me a message or reply this post if you are interested in..

Yiz

Hi guys,
Thanks for the replies, seems we are all keen to head out to hike/sightseeing on weekends.
I can't do this Sunday, what about next Sunday 21/7 or the one after 28/7.
I'm thinking to organize it regularly 1-2 time per month, so don't worry if you miss it out this time.

This time we will go check out Healesville.

Anyone else has a car? I can take 3-4 people (3 is probably better, not a big car).

If interest in, please write down your preferred date Sunday 21/7 or 28/7 and if you have a car or need a lift.

Cheers, Yiz

For me both Sundays are good - although 21st I think would be slightly better as 28th is after Fran's BDay. Need a lift.

Posted July 10th, 2013 - 6:32 am by from Melbourne, Australia (Permalink)
For me probably it's better the 28!!! :D

Hi Monique,
Thanks for reminding me...Almost forgot it's Fran's birthday the day before..Not sure hiking will be a good idea after a big party :-)


Sorry Rocco, have to make this one 21/7 then..
But if we cannot find 3-4 person then we will postpone it to
4/8.

Cheers, Yiz

Hi Farzana,
Thanks for reply but we are going next Sunday 21/7 not this one. Are you still want to join us? Otherwise you can talk to the others to see if rest of you want to go this Sunday.

So far there is Monamaj, CLOUD9 and me are up for the trip to Healesville on 21/7. I can take 1-2 more person in my car.

Cheers, Yiz

I want to go too, I have space for 4 in the car, but also happy to be in someone else's car.

Hey guys, I'll do a bit research this weekend and see what we can do in Healesville. I'm pretty keen to do a bit hiking, probably around 1-2 hours long. Feel free to suggest anything you'd like to see/do over there.

Thanks Tiago, I'll put this to CS event and if we have more people interested in coming then it will be great if you can take some of them.

Cheers!

Hi guys,
I have created an event for this trip.

https://www.couchsurfing.org/n/events/day-trip-to-healesville-on-21-7-melbourne

Sign up there if you can, it's just a bit easier to count how many people are going on an event page than every time scrolling down through all the posts here.

Cheers, see you guys next Sunday!

Posted July 13th, 2013 - 12:46 pm by from Melbourne, Australia (Permalink)
Im interested as well! You can count me in! :)

Posted July 26th, 2013 - 11:25 am by from Melbourne, Australia (Permalink)
