    bazzamac,

    Is this venue confirmed yet?

    Also, did you mean access via Wendouree Drive? I can't seem to find a Macquarie Drive in the area on Google Maps.

    Is this link the spot?
    Regards,

    Simon

    Default Battle of Waterloo Update

    Here are updated details of our Battle of Waterloo event. We have a new venue this year - Rond Terrace, used for the National Renault Rendezvous in Easter 2008, is a spectacular venue beside the lake with views of national institutions etc (fog permitting) and offers a good backdrop for photos.

    A gathering of French and British cars, including some bicycles, will be held on Sunday 17th June 2012 at Rond Terraces to commemorate the Battle of Waterloo in 1815. The event is sponsored by Shannons Insurance. In past years, the event has attracted up to 100 cars and around 150 participants depending on the weather. Entry to the event is open to the general public.

    The event is being organised by the Renault Owners Club of Canberra (ROCC) in conjunction with the Peugeot Association of Canberra (PAC) and sponsors.

    Entry to and egress from the event will be via Constitution Ave and Macquarie Drive and then via the gate near Blundellís Cottage.

    Freestanding directional signs will be at the intersections of Anzac Parade with Constitution Avenue and Constitution Avenue and Macquarie Drive and at the entrance near Blundellís Cottage to designate the entry point for the event.

    The sign at the entrance will designate an advisory speed limit of 5kph.

    An official in a fluoro vest will be at the entrance to guide cars to their respective locations. Public parking will be directed to the hard standing area just south of Rond Pond at the end of Anzac Parade.

    All cars will be parked on the hard stand red granite area and back from the RG Menzies walkway on the lake edge as public access to the area is not restricted.

    Coffee, tea and drink facilities will be available. Food will be provided by a BBQ run by the PAC next to the coffee van. Each will have waste disposal facilities.

    Door prizes will be available for lucky entrants.

    Toilet facilities located to the west in Commonwealth Park.

    Event Schedule

    Set up at 9am
    Event 10am to 3pm
    Take down and clean up from 3pm

    G'day,
    I tend to agree. I note however, that the area seems to be near Russell, where ASIO apparently, but not confirmed, , might have its headquarters. Maybe this event is covert/undercover.

    Was looking forward to being there but I have to stage manage a theatre organ concert in Sydney that day. I have already put what I suspect to be the date for next years BoW in my diary.

    I hope it is a successful and sunny day for all who go.

    Almost there - the weather here in Sydney yesterday certainly reminded me of past Battle of Waterloo events I've been to.

    Hopefully it will be a little inclement on the 17th - it tends to swing the balance in favour of the French cars
    Regards,

    i am attempting to compensate for that by proactively encouraging other lotus europa owners to accompany me on the day.

    i do, however, think simon's assessment of the matter is quite correct, and believe it has something to do with the relatively crude weather protection (and other aspects) of classic british cars!

    ROCC's website has an interesting juxtaposition of detail, viz:
    Toilet facilities are located to the west in Commonwealth Park.
    Door prizes will be available to the lucky entrants.
