Please note the Ice Creamery can only accommodate 24 members at their ‘Sundae School’ Members not visiting the Ice Creamery will cross the creek to the Timboon Distillery for some whisky tasting. If registering for this trip please select either Ice Creamery or Distillery. It is not possible to visit both.
Next stop is the Timboon Cheesery for some locally produced organic cheese tasting. A local winery will bring some tastings to the cheesery (sales of cheese and wine will be available).
Travel back into Timboon to the hotel for lunch (pre order and pay for speedy service - $17 each).
After lunch travel to the outskirts of Timboon to Dairylicous, a fudge factory for some more tastings (no one is going to want dinner tonight 😊).

The Australian National University, ANU College of Law is conducting research to identify whether the Australian consumer law and the Australian vehicle standards are ineffective in ensuring that only caravans that are fit for purpose are used on Australian roads.
The project is reviewing relevant law applicable to the design and sale of caravans including the Motor Vehicle Standards Act 1989 (Cth), the Road Vehicle Standards Rules 2019 (Cth) and Vehicle Standards Bulletin VSB1 Building Small Trailers National Code of Practice. Other relevant law will be the Australian Consumer Law (or ACL). The ACL is set out in Schedule 2 to the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth).
