The inaugural Alpine Alfisti Tour commenced with a fabulous dinner at Rinaldo's Casa Cucina in Wangaratta on Friday night.

Early on Saturday morning 30 Alfisti, who had ventured from VIC, ACT, NSW & QLD to be part of this Tour, assembled at the Milawa Cheese Factory for breakfast. From Milawa the Tour headed for Falls Creek and dinner at the Last Hoot Cafe. The route took the roads via Mitta Mitta, stopping at the Mitta Pub for lunch, then up and over the Bogong High Plains, stopping at Wallace Hut for an invigorating walk among the Alpine gums.
