  • Excursions
    These are a major activity of the Society, which owns and maintains its own fleet of vintage carriages and catering/service vehicles. Seldom does a month go by without the running of an interesting and scenic day excursion. In fact we have built up an enviable reputation for arranging innovative and appealing outings not available from any other operator.

    Preferential bookings are available to members, who are automatically advised of all trips and tours. Please contact the RES Clubrooms (refer to Contact Info) for further information about the events listed below.

    If you are unable to open the brochures which are PDF files, Adobe Reader may need to be installed on your computer.
