There was insufficient demand for the tour planned for MAFFRA on Tuesday 23 June 2015, so this event was regretfully cancelled. Our thanks to Maffra Secondary College for having been willing to host the tour. 

We attempted to arrange a tour to LEONGATHA but could not achieve a match of date, venue and availability of the Roadshow team.
