If travelling from Creswick, turn left into Pistol Club Road (the road AFTER the Racecourse turn-off). Balloons will be on the letterbox, and it is the 1st driveway on the right. If you cross the railway lines you have missed the drive. There is ample float parking, but please keep off grass/lawn areas.

    RIDE:

    This is a leisurely ride via bush tracks & gravel roads out to Slatey Creek Picnic Grounds in Creswick. It is an easy ride but be aware that some roads have coarse bluestone gravel, your horse ideally should be shod or booted up. The total distance is 15-20 km's, stopping at the picnic grounds for lunch. BYO saddlebag lunch. Toilet facilities are at the picnic grounds. The ride can be done at a walk but there will be the opportunity for a trot or canter for those wishing to. There is access to the Picnic Grounds via Melbourne Road in Creswick if anybody wants family to meet them for lunch. We will be riding back to the floats after lunch.
