November Club Outing: Maleny and Rick's Garage
We meet at Shell Nudgee. Heading off at 7.30ish up the Bruce Highway then onto Steve Irwin Way. Going through Landsborough, we picked up a hitchhiker in a black ute (one Adrian Peacock) and continued up to Maleny. There wasn’t too much traffic on the way up.
Once in Maleney we parked up in the back street behind IGA. Plenty of parking there if you’re looking at heading up there. A lovely town with heaps to see up and down the main strip. I think we all found the chocolate shop tucked away, but with plenty of signs around you couldn’t miss it with plenty to please everyone.
I rang Ricks Garage in Palmwoods to see if they could fit us in for lunch. They sure could and if you get in early they will put red bollards out the front to save the parking spots for us. Ww left Maleny after 11.00 for Palmwoods with Adrian taking us the back road in a nice scenic trip. Parking out the front at Ricks, a Mazda CX3 tried to squeeze in front of Kelvin to which they were told to move on. Ricks had our tables set up outside. Everyone had a look around and then got stuck into their lunch and drinks. Great food, lots to look and everyone had a really good time.
Headed back down the Bruce Highway at the speed limit as it was Saturday and not the Sunday carpark. A top day had by all who came out for the day.
Wishing you all a merry and safe Christmas and hope for a great year ahead where we can get out and about in our cars to see more of this lovely part of Aus we live in!
