GETTING THERE:

  • The Blores Hill track is located a short drive north of Heyfield in Victoria. About 2.5 hours east from the Melbourne CBD. Your best bet is to stay on the Princes Highway until you get to Traralgon and then follow the signs to Heyfield. Some GPSs suggests you turn off at Moe, but we'd advise against that.
  • Once you are in Heyfield, there will be signs directing you onto Weir Road and then to the race venue (about 5 minutes from town).

 


ACCOMMODATION:

  • The race start/finish line is on the grounds of the Blores Hill Caravan Park, making it the ideal place to stay. Both camping and cabins are available, call 03 5148 2495 to book.
  • The Munjara Outdoor Centre is about two minutes ride away and has several mudbrick cabins available. 03 5148 3009 or 0428 483 009.
  • The Wellington Shire website provides more options via it's Accommodation Search (select Location as Heyfield).

 


CATERING:

  • Food will be available all day Saturday
  • Coffee will be available at the event!!!
  • Shuttle bus will provide transportation to Heyfield Friday and Saturday nights for meals

SPECTATING:

  • There will be regular shuttles running from the race village up to the Trig for spectating.
  • The is the most technical part of the course and well worth a look.

POST RACE:

To try to get people to not rush off at the conclusion of the race we have some activities planned. Here are some reasons to stay on and enjoy the post race atmosphere:

  • Shuttle bus into Heyfield for a post-race meal
  • If you stay the night, feel free to ride the rest of Blores Hill as there is more to Blores Hill than what you've seen in the race.
