Optional Melbourne Welcome
For interstate guests, arrive into Melbourne by mid-afternoon. Your car, having been transported from your home, will be securely stored and waiting for your arrival. Local and interstate guests can then opt to meet in the early afternoon for an unofficial welcome aperitif and dinner. A great way to start the long weekend and meet other guests on the tour.
First Drive Day
Meet in the morning down at St Kilda beach for a display start. Today's drive will take place on open roads, with the route covering a selection of renowned roads throughout the Yarra and Macedon Ranges to Daylesford. That evening you will stay at the Lake House – one of Victoria's most celebrated regional venues – and enjoy dinner at the hotel's AGFG-hatted restaurant.
Second Drive Day
On Friday the group will head east back through the Yarra Ranges to link up with the Targa High Country tarmac rally. The morning will feature a selection of magnificent free-flowing sections of tarmac, after which you will have your first taste of closed road rallying on the Targa Tour. These first stages have a bit of everything – fast, flowing sweepers, linking and tightening corners and spectacular views.
Third Drive Day
The second day of the rally is a loop out from Mansfield. The day includes seven closed road stages on the Targa Tour. Before lunch you will enjoy some high speed, flowing stages combined with a twisty run down the valley into Whitfield. In the afternoon the stages are repeated in reverse, followed by the famous Mansfield Street Stage and Street Party.
Fourth Drive Day
Day three of the Targa Tour covers the mammoth 49km stage of Jamieson – the second-longest stage on the Targa calendar, and one of the most challenging tarmac rally stages. In the afternoon we will make our way to Yering Station for a leisurely afternoon of wine tasting and lunch. As lunch concludes you can choose to drive back to Melbourne, or hop aboard our chartered helicopters for a scenic flight back to Crown. That evening you can opt to meet for a final dinner with the group where you can reminisce on the fantastic weekend that was.
Farewell and Departures
For those who opted to join the additional night at Crown Towers, following breakfast and check-out the day is yours before transfers and onward travel plans.
