Lock Up Your Daughters (And Your Sons)! 

Hide the Cakes and the Scotch – AuStrom Turns Two!

The AuStrom Horde will be descending en-masse on Crows Nest, Queensland for three days – 16th – 18th of March 2018. Come for one day, two days or three days – it’s entirely up to you. Ride, eat, drink and socialise.


Friday 16th March 2018 – Meet and Greet

We’re all going to be meeting up at the Grand Old Crow Hotel on Friday evening for the weekend kick off. Relax, wash the dust out of your throat with a cold one (or two). For those who book, dinner will be supplied in the form of pizza and hot and cold platters – and for $10.00 a head you won’t find any better value than that!

(Note: We’re currently negotiating with a major sponsor to cover the costs for the meet and greet. If they come to the party, then we will be donating any spare funds from the meet and greet to the local Bush Fire Brigade)

Saturday 17 March 2018

Big Day today! After a leisurely breakfast and a poke around town, we’re all riding up to Wivenhoe Dam for lunch (pre-book on the registration page) at the cafe. There will be two routes out and back, one bitumen and one dirt for those feeling a little more adventurous.

Saturday night is the official AuStrom Birthday Celebration dinner at the pub and it’s going to be a big one. The “Old Crow” is providing us with a two course buffet dinner plus entertainment for the very reasonable price of $30 per head. I’m told that they also do a great line in “cake and scotch”. We’ll also be holding the raffles that night and will be giving out a number of awards to our members.

Sunday 18th March 2018

All good things must come to an end, and so our Birthday Bash closes down for another year. A hearty breakfast and strong coffee? Or just a couple of paracetamol and no noise? Your choice.

So what happens in Crow’s Next?

We’ve sent out scouts on a clandestine planning mission and this is what they reported:

Polo Shirts

The back room team have been very busy again (take a bow Graham and Co) and have really excelled themselves. Get a load of this beauty! Available in sizes Small to 5XL so grab them while you can – grab a couple for the family as well!



Given that we are such a diverse bunch, we’re offering a diverse range of accommodation some of which are offering a discount for members.
