We concluded "AFF Launceston (Newcastle replacement) 23/24 October" at Moores Hill winery and a more than adequate lunch. Thanks to the 7 others who participated and made it a fun weekend.

For me, a drive back down the east coast, with a stop in Campbell Town

The Red Bridge, convict built, 1838. Oldest brick bridge in Australia and oldest bridge in the national highway network.

And to have some aviation, the Harold Gatty Memorial. From Wikipedia:

Harold Charles Gatty (5 January 1903 – 30 August 1957) was an Australian navigator and aviation pioneer. Charkes Lindburgh called Gatty the "Prince of Navigators." In 1931, Gatty served as navigator, along with pilot Wiley Post on the flight which set the record for aerial circumnavigation of the world, flying a distance of 15,747 miles (24,903 km) in a Lockheed Vega named the Winnie Mae, in 8 days, 15 hours and 51 minutes.

To conclude for me: 'the one that got away' :rolleyes: - The 'Constable Amos' pinot noir from Gala Winery, still sitting on the bench at home where I forgot it. Next time!!

Almost got to join you today. You drove past our front gate between Stony Rise and Marions! What was the Marion's Pinot like? Usually they're OK but nothing special. Occasionally however they produce a show stopper.

Yes they were OK but nothing to get excited about.
Lunch board was nice.
