Cost pp is anticipated to be $460 per golfer, and $370 per non golfer, which includes 3 days unlimited golf (for golfers), prizes, dinner on the second night, breakfast each morning delivered to your room, and a $12 club voucher per person per day,

Driving time to Swan Hill by the Calder and London highways, is 4 hours and 15 minutes, (375km).

Payment of $100 per couple to the treasurer indicating that it is for the Murray Downs trip is requested. Places are limited but we will be running a waiting list.

Some may be interested in travelling to Swan Hill via the Wimmera and the Mallee to observe the painted silos in a number of towns. Louise and I did this year, and while it probably means taking an extra day and staying overnight along the way, we found it very interesting.

The main towns with painted silos are Talbot, Rupanyup, Sheep Hills, Brim, Roseberry, Lascelles, and Patchewollock. Although a long way off the track, Rochester probably has the most spectacular silos of all, and could be taken in on the trip home or on a shorter trip to Swan Hill.
