HOG Day Ride –Tarana Hotel
Our destination for today was meant to be The Cessnock Hotel located in the Hunter Region north of
Sydney. Cessnock is the gateway to the Hunter Valley wine region and has over 150 vineyards.
Unfortunately, Cessnock was declared a disaster zone in the recent March floods and rain there is
persisting which has caused a last-minute change of destination. Our Road Captains were up early
this morning conferring with each other and checking the weather charts and found that heading
west today might be a better alternative with no rain predicted there for today. The alternative
destination chosen was the Tarana Hotel and notification of this change was posted on social media
by 6.40 am. To simplify things, the meet point and departure times remained the same.
