Luncheon Outing Group (ARHS Melbourne branch)

The Luncheon Outing Group organises a monthly gathering combining lunch, fellowship and a visit to a place of interest, usually associated with railways or tramways in and around Melbourne.

There is usually a nominal cost and historical notes are provided. Lunch is at the participant's own cost, as is any travel involved which is usually by public transport, using your Myki ticket.

Participation in Luncheon Group outings are open to all members of the Australian Railway Historical Society and their guests. The group's outings are informal, but please register your intention to participate with the coordinator, Hugh Waldron, at least 24 hours prior to the event for catering purposes.

Details of future events will be published on this website and in the ARHS Members' Newsletter each month.

The Luncheon Group was originally established under the ARHS Victorian Division, based on the format established in NSW.
Following the closure of the Victorian Division, the group continued its monthly outings under the banner of the Association of Railway Enthusiasts. When it too ceased operations, ARHSnsw stepped in to enable the group to continue.
