Default Black Knight, Black Dog and Silver Key



Beautiful day, blue skies, so we're off. Lunch at the Silver Key in Rutherglen but this sign looks tempting. So Goorambat, Devenish for the Black Knight rally then Thoona, Black Dog Brewery, Baileys etc.
The Black Knight is the Us and Them bikey, I mean motorcycle enthusiasts.
I'll keep you posted if my battery holds out. Forgot to charge it last night!

Baileys Winery has nice gardens with a bbq area.


Baileys Winery. Had a nice cappuccino.


Taminick Gap, Wang side.
As a child I used to ride my bike past here and wonder what it would be like living under that giant boulder. Hopefully no earthquakes!


Taminick Gap. That's Wang down there.

Next stop....Buffalo Brewery.

Buffalo Brewery at Boorhaman. Indistinguishable from a pub IMHO


Campbells Winery Rutherglen. No wine connoisseurs with us so we're heading into Rutherglen for our favourite lunch spot. No...not Parkers Pies.


The Silver Key cafe. Fantastic retro fish n chip shop. That's the parmiburger!

Nearly 3 o'clock so tossing up whether to go to Chiltern and Beechworth or home?

ps. The Black Knight rally has a stage for rock bands and lots of tents but not really our thing so we said hello and rode on.

Jo and I spent a night at the Black Knight rally back in I think 2009. Certainly was an enthusiastic crowd, and many didn't get to bed until 4 or 5am. Earplugs were a necessity. was a good night none the less. They had the biggest bonfire I have ever witnessed.

I was intending to go up to the Far Cairn Rally in Tottenham NSW this weekend but it was cancelled due to the weather. the campground was waterlogged apparently.
