When arriving to Sydney, I'll be staying at NightCap at Hume Hotel. If you wish to stay at Hume Hotel. Here is a direct link Hume Hotel to book online from 31st March to 1st April 2022. You can book any hotel/motel in Sydney.

Each stops are Caltex and AMPOL fuel stations. I do apologies they are not your favourible fuel stations but they're my preferrable fuel stations for my business fuel card. Please ensure that you have plenty enough funds to fuel up your tanks!

  • Love your work - thank you!

  • Hehe thank you.

    It took me a while to get it organised.

    I'll use my Garmin GPS to avoid TOLL in-case and use Highway as possible. The estimate cost to enter NorthConnex is $8.52 is ridiculous!

    If I want to drive on Sydney Habour bridge, it's like $20.00+. Damn you can get it for free on West Gate Bridge, except Bolty bridge. xD

    As you are coming through Sydney, I may be able to join you. With respect to tolls, if you do stay in Yagoona, then the easiest thing to do given that you won't be traversing Sydney during peak hour is to take the A6 from Yagoona up to Pennant Hills Road. Since the opening of NorthConnex, the traffic on Pennant Hills Road has dropped off significantly. Notably there is virtually no truck traffic anymore. My input as a local to that part of Sydney is that there's no point taking NorthConnex outside of peak hour.

    My other input is that you may enjoy moving your Caltex M1 Northbound pitstop to Pie in the Sky, Cowan, although this will mean the leg from there to Newcastle will be about 1h50m. There's a couple servos a few minutes before it in Berowra. Pie in the Sky is a classic car and motorcycle hotspot although on a Friday morning it will be relatively quiet. Still! Highly recommend it just for the pies and the diversion from the monotony of highway driving.

    That's alright. Pie in the skies it is. Yes I'm staying one night at Yagoona and we'll take A6 to M1, then enter Pacific Hwy. 👌

  • Hmm, IF we buy the XC40 EV, we may have to stop every 200 km to charge! :)

    Hahahah, good excuse for a rest stop! Looking forward to this in the new year. Hopefully by then border restrictions will be eased enough to make it possible...

    Hi,

    Is this a drive to Sawtell NSW in 2022 for a club get together??

    Can anyone on this forum join in?

    I'm in Ballina, far north coast, and would love to come down to meet some of you people and to be a part of an event with others loving being in a volvo.

    If someone could message me any details on date and where we are meeting so I can put in calender.

    Looking forward to a trip and a gander at some of the cars that'll be there.

    Thanks y'all,

    Gordy.😎

    A special update... I will add new destination from Mornington Peninsula to Tallarook and avoid morning peak hour traffic at Metropolitan Fwy and avoid city link.

    A special detour with sightview but extra 20 minutes. It may help to keep away traffic jam.

    Starting point will be Carrum Downs Regional Shopping Centre who are from Mornington can join in for a group drive.

    To avoid boring and heavy traffic conditions. I have made a special detour with a good cruise instead on boring Hume Hwy with speeding cameras. The starting point is at Carrum Downs Regional Shopping Centre. You can fuel up, shop at Woolworths half an hour to buy some grubs or have a breaky at Hungry Jacks or Maccas.
    Any Mornington Peninsula Volvo drivers who are interested to drive from Carrum Downs to Tallarook. Contact me via PM if you like to join in.
