East Coast Meet – Port Macquarie – September 4 – 6, 2015.
This event has now been held and a great time was had by all. 51 entries were received and a range of beautiful Buicks from 1925 to 1983 attended at Port Macquarie for a fun weekend.
Overview of Activities
The 2015 East Coast Meet is shaping up to be a great get-together for Buick members of all States. Here’s an overview of activities planned for the event.
As many members choose to arrive a little early (as quite a few did at Nambucca Heads), we have decided to include some “Early Bird’ activities for those people who are keen to start having fun early.
Our accommodation for the Meet will be at The Sundowner Breakwall Tourist Park. This is an excellent location with a wide range of accommodation available and plenty of room to park a Buick beside your unit. The Park is a very pleasant 8 minute walk along a pretty walkway to the CBD or eastward to the surf beach. The Sundowner has very generously offered our group a 25% discount for 3 or 4 night bookings, shorter stays than this will be 15% discount. This means that accommodation for our group will range from $66 to $132 as listed hereunder. These prices are AFTER discount.
Spa Bayside Cottage 4 berth $126
Spa Bayside Cottage 6 berth $132
Spa Riverside 4 berth cottage $111.50

Thursday, 3rd September 2015
For the ‘early birds’, we will have a very low key welcome drinks and a cuppa from 5.00 p.m. You will be able to check in from 4.00 p.m. at cabin 33.
Friday, 4th September 2015
A relaxing day is planned for ‘early birds’ cruising the beautiful Hastings River and stopping for lunch at a riverside resort before returning to Sundowner.
For those people arriving on Friday, check in and a welcome cuppa will be available from 3.00 p.m. at cabin 33.
Our Meet and Greet will be held around the BBQ area adjacent to the above cabins/units from 5.00 p.m. followed by a light casual supper. This is a great chance to catch up with old friends, make new friends and generally yarn about all things Buick.
Saturday, 5th September 2015
Today our run will take us from the fantastic coastal scenery of the Port area to the rural vistas of the hinterland. We will see surf beaches, rain forests, grazing country and rivers. Lunch will be at a country pub. On the way home we will stop at a very interesting little brewery with tastings and sales available for those who don’t mind a ‘cold drop on a hot day’.
(Please note that the Buick Car Club of Australia Inc. or the organisers of this event do not endorse or condone drinking alcohol and driving so we recommend beer tastings be confined to non drivers.)
An informal dinner will be held at the Panthers Club. A bus will be provided to and from Panthers to the Sundowner Tourist Park.
Sunday, 6th September 2015
Our Show and Shine will be held in the members car park of the Panthers Club from 9.00 – 11.00 a.m. Panthers is adjacent to a very large shopping centre so there will be plenty of things to do for the ladies while the boys are looking at cars.
Following our Show and Shine there will be short run to an interesting venue for lunch.
After lunch, feel free to take in any of the other interesting places around this picturesque area.
Our Presentation Dinner will be held at the Panthers Club. Again a bus will be provided to and from Panthers.
All good things must come to an end, so Monday morning is time to head home and look forward to the next fun weekend of Buicking with a great bunch of Buick friends.
We hope you enjoy the activities we have planned for the Meet.
Make your accommodation booking now and we look forward to seeing you all in Port Macquarie in September.
