On the back of our fantastic 2018 event, DAD's bringing back the Summer Picnic Drive. You're invited to join us for our 2019 Christmas drive, it’s a chilled out cruise to share with friends and take a breath before the silly season sets in.

The Drive

Our first annual summer picnic drive last year was such a brilliant day. Everything we needed as a busy year draws to a close – great friends, great roads, a chilled out picnic lunch in a beautiful location and plenty of cars to delight and excite.
 
The format of the day worked so well we’re excited to share a similar occasion with you this Christmas. Pop this one in your diary before the Christmas dates fill up!
 
We're starting in Rockbank and heading to Mount Franklin for a cruisy picnic lunch. Our drive route will take us via Daylesford for the opportunity to enjoy the scenery and pick up some local produce for lunch.
 
The picnic is self catered. No lunch pre payment required for this event so you can bring the food and drinks you enjoy.
 
At a hectic time of year we're loving the simplicity of this event - beautiful drive route, great company and a relaxed way to end the day.
 
Bring the family and enjoy the outdoors and some time together re-connecting through the drive without screens and other pressures. That's what Drive Against Depression is all about...opportunities to reconnect with yourself and those who are important to you.
 
We're feeling the chilled out vibes already and look forward to wrapping up the year with you on 1st December.
 
Getting out for our regular community drives is so important to us, let’s have one more to close out a big year. It’s where Drive Against Depression started and it’s still a fundamental way by which we provide opportunities for people to get together in a judgement free, non-confrontation environment and enjoy the pleasure of a Sunday drive.

Payment

As usual we haven’t set a minimum price to join our event. $30 per person has been customary in the past, we’ll leave it to your discretion and generosity.

Who’s This Drive For?

Everyone interested in enjoying their car (or motorcycle!), Victoria’s best roads and the company of like minded people.
We promote a non confrontational, judgement free environment to normalise conversations about mental health and offer the support of our community and a great day out.

This drive and lunch destination is suited to families so feel free to bring the kiddies (young and older all welcome!). This event offers a valuable opportunity to enjoy the outdoors and some time together re-connecting through the drive without screens and other pressures. That’s what Drive Against Depression is all about…opportunities to reconnect with yourself and those who are important to you.
