On the back of our fantastic 2018 event, DAD's bringing back the Summer Picnic Drive. Let’s get out for one more drive for 2019. Join us for our Christmas picnic drive, it’s a chilled out cruise to share with friends and take a breath before the silly season set in.

The Drive

Our first annual summer picnic drive last year was such a brilliant day. Everything we needed to end a busy year – 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!

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.

We know these drives are important to you, so while we put together our drive route we’re releasing the dates as placeholders for your diary.

This registration page is live, so please feel welcome to register anytime! We’ll note your attendance and keep you updated as the planning continues and the drive route is finalised.


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 will be 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.
