I live up in Woodend and don't get into Melbourne that much. But I can catch the train down for a meet up :)

We could have it at Mt Macedon, depending on where people are coming from. Or the Melbourne Botanic Gardens.

We are in South Yarra so Botanic Gardens is an easy ride. Not that the location has to be near us :)

Will know our schedule for Friday in the next day or so.

Would be great to meet.

Friday is the day after tomorrow. Are we meeting, and if so where? And when? Lunch?

Hello! Sorry I asked the initial question about meeting up, then looked back a few times to see no answers and then totally forgot to check back till now! Wow go you guys if you end up meeting up Good Friday, that is quick organising! I will be away though so will have to try next time (I have also kind of started a thread on FB where a few people are interested - might be some of you here!)

Nice to see a few people from Macedon, Woodend, Sunbury...my family will hopefully be visiting Gisborne next weekend to begin to check out if we might like to move there! My sister is moving to Woodend and I am looking for somewhere to move from Melbourne and speed up our FI by about 5 years (at least) and thought well why not follow her! :)

I assumed no given the discussion went quiet. Have made plans but my wife and I are definitely up for something in the near future. If tomorrow doesn't go ahead perhaps we pick a Saturday in early May?

Sorry, thought that by replying I would receive automatic notifications of responses. oops! Anyway, I'm still keen to meet up. I've already FIRE'd so have a lot of free time; although I do volunteer work Tuesdays, Wednesdays and some Sundays.

Just to throw a date out there is anyone free Saturday 13th of May? I am able to meet up in the city or inner north-west (unless everyone who says they are free and wants to meet up is in Sunbury/Macedon/Gisborne/Woodend as if that is the case I am happy to go out that way!)

I should be OK for that day. Depends on if any kids' birthday party invites hit the fridge in the next week or so!

I'm out the 13th now. Have family coming to visit. The next few weekends after that I'm bus with volunteer work but am available after that (at this stage).

Mid week meet ups are also a go for any fellow retirees out there. Up my way is absolutely spectacular at the moment with autumn colours really kicking off. The 'Avenue of Honour' in many towns up this way are lovely. For example, Mt Macedon's is near the train station and looks fab:




I can throw in a thermos of coffee and/or tea and I'll bake something tasty. We can stroll and enjoy the sights.

Looks lovely Todge! Well I may try Facebook to arrange a meet up as I think it's easier for people to get notifications rather than have to come on the forum and check if anyone has replied. Are u on Facebook/on the Mustachians Australia page at all?

Sweet! Yeah I just found it a month or two ago! It's pretty cool, like if you post a general question or comment there you'll get some good responses as it just pops up in people's news feed as opposed to having to make the specific effort to check here and come across an Aussie based question! :)

Hey all,

You guys still thinking of meeting up? I'd be interested.

PS -- who do you guys use as an online stock broker?

Hey seranade.  I'm always interested in meeting up,  but it seems hard to build momentum.  Some have suggested Facebook is easier  *shrugs*

Either way,  I am currently using IG for online brokerage.. but it's US stocks selection is somewhat limited, or maybe I'm just always after things which aren't typical, who knows.

I hear that CMC markets is very popular.  *shrugs*   

I'd be interested in hearing what you decide upon.

I am going to be in Bendigo next weekend, and I'm happy to come to a meetup.

What say we meet on Sunday 16th July for lunch at Juicy Bao (never been there but Trip Advisor says it is the best dumpling restaurant, and it is cheap) 178 - 190 Little Bourke St. - say 11:45?

I can't make it this Sunday. I could make the week after. I'll be in the Grampions. :(

And I agree, I think having a Melbourne FB page would make coordination easier, I'm sure!

I live in Canberra and come down every so often, so it's this Sunday or not for me. I'm happy to meet whoever comes.

Yeah we're still good for this Sunday Deborah.

We live in West Melbourne now so we can also make some time the following weekend Seranade.  We have a friend's engagement party on Sat night,  but otherwise free.

There is an existing Facebook group.  Mustachians Australia.  You should join if you haven't already I guess :)

Cheers,
De'ana and Mark

Just joined! YAY!

Might be easier to coordinate a hangout on there moving forward! Hope the meet-up goes well! Looking forward to hearing about it!

I've been posting occasionally for years now but only just found this thread. Exciting to see a few others are also in the Macedon Ranges area - so beautiful around here (and the house prices are good for the stash!).

Will keep an eye out for the next meet up.
