1/5/22 Gold Coast Run

Drive through backroads to boat ramp at far side of Hinze dam then back again for picnic lunch at Mudgeearba

24/4/22 Maleny

The Barrel at Clouds Vineyard in Maleny was the end point for lunch. The run in conjunction with TSOAQ brought together cars from different directions being Brisbane, Sunshine Coast and Hervey Bay.


Gold Coast Run to the botanical gardens on Mt Tambourine for a picnic lunch. Picturesque run with a very steep climb by backroads to the top of the mountain. Two cars had to pull over and admire the scenery for half an hour while their engines cooled off. One had an electric fan malfunction which was easy to correct while the other is on borrowed time as it had used quite a bit of water. Fortunately a following car stopped and the driver being local returned with a large container of water within 10 mins.


Bayside run organized by Judy Parker. Meeting place was for coffee at Lagoon View Drive Nursery. Scenic drive around the hills of Mt Cotton then thru to Victoria point and on to Thornside for lunch watching the tide coming into the bay.


Combined run with TSOA

Meeting place was TSOA Club House on Old Cleveland Rd then down to Beenliegh on roads parallel to the freeway where possible. Coffee at a near new complex by the rum distillery. This place processes coffee beans and offer tours of the plant.
The group were then led on a circular route to Flagstaff and then back to Mac's Bridge the original car display venue where we all enjoyed a picnic lunch but suffered from a late sandfly invasion.

6/3/22 Gold Coast Run

Nice drive through the outer suburb's with a steep climb up Panorama drive to view the whole of the coastline and high rise buildings. The decent was also very steep and twisty with the smell and sight of smoking brakes. We then were led up to a dead end (been there many times) and had to retrace back to the correct approach to the Hinze Dam. This is the main dam behind the coast and its spillway was in full flow due to the recent torrential rains.

10/2/22 Drive your TRiumph Day

After meeting at the iconic Mount Coot-tha Botanical Gardens a merry tribe of Triumph Cars meandered their way along the beautiful Mount Glorious mountain road. We were treated with amazing weather and lush green countryside whilst being lulled by the sound of bellbirds.
We stopped for morning tea at Jolly’s Lookout. The peaceful serenity and gentle cool breezes of this mountain top stop are only surpassed by its incredible outlook. This is made even more impressive by the amazingly different shades of green as far as the eye can see.
Drinks & nibbles were consumed as conversation & laughter rang gently into the breeze.
Triumphs reluctantly pulled away and drove up Clear Mountain drive to a spectacular lookout over Lake Samsonvale.
After moments of scenic glimpses we were on our way winding our way at a leisurely pace to Bullocky Rest on Lake Samsonvale.
Picnic baskets, flutters of conversation and bursts of laughter filled the picnic area as we enjoyed a picnic and caught up with friend.
Cars were talked about and pointed at and goss exchanged. Such a lovely way to spend the day.
