Australian Morris Ring National Ale 2017

Australian Morris Ring National Ale 2017

Event date: 
Friday, August 18, 2017 - 12:00 to Monday, September 4, 2017 - 17:00
The Australian Morris Ring in conjunction with the annual National Ale is organising a tour to commence in Adelaide, travel to Melbourne, and then concluding in the Australian national capital, Canberra.
They would like to invite sides to visit Australia to take part in their 2017 National Ale and Tour.
The Australian Morris Ring is the representative organisation of all Australian morris teams. Membership is not defined by gender.

They have attempted to create a tour that highlights the cities of Adelaide, Melbourne and Canberra but also includes regional centres as well as two of Australia’s most prestigious wine areas, the McLaren Vale and the Yarra Valley. There will be ample opportunity to walk through the Australian bush and to experience some of the unique wildlife. Of course there will also be ample opportunity for dancing, singing and music; the reason for the tour.


They are flexible – choose which bits you want to do if for any reason you do not wish to participate in the entire event. They will have separate costing for each of the cities and the travel components. So “mix and match” as you wish.

Preliminary Itinerary

They will offer all accommodation, transport and most meals for the duration of your stay.
The attached gives fuller details and a breakdown of the costings for the various elements. They would be grateful for the balance of the booking payment as soon as you are able, but would appreciate half of the remaining amount by the end of February 2017 and the balance by the end of April 2017.
Please let them know if you have any interest in attending and they will keep you informed of all details. Let them know if you have any questions.
