Tamsin’s Table is an easy 90 minute drive south east of Melbourne. We are just over 22 kms from the township of Drouin and about 15 kms from the township of Poowong.
The most direct route for most visitors coming from Melbourne is to come up the Monash Freeway and take the Drouin/Mt Baw Baw exit. At the exit, turn right towards Drouin. Once in Drouin, turn right at the second roundabout, which will take you over the railway bridge. You are now on our road – Main South Road. Keep following this road out of Drouin.
Once you are back in the 100km/hr speed limit zone, there will be a fork in the road. Take the left hand fork, towards Poowong East (signposted).
Keep driving for c. 20kms until you reach the locality of Poowong East (signposted). Just before the Poowong East sign, you will see that the road veers off to the right and turns into Timms Rd. Again, take the left hand fork to stay on Main South Road. Please note that at this intersection Timms Rd is signposted, but Main South Rd is not. However if you keep left you will remain on Main South Rd.
Drive through the ‘village’ of Poowong East through to where the road gets very windy and seems to head downhill. You will see Olsens Rd on your right. We are the next driveway on the left. You will see our blue cream can letterbox at the bottom of the driveway, marked number 2255.
Please drive past our driveway and on up to the Poowong East Hall, a few hundred metres up the road on the left (the dirt road up to the Hall forks off to the left). You can easily turn around here, and access to our driveway is much easier when approaching from this direction. Our driveway is 1km long, so no, you have not taken a wrong turn! Park in the parking area under the oak tree and then come on down to the house.
Please approach suggestions from your GPS (if you have one) with a healthy dose of scepticism. They do not reliably recommend the easiest or fastest route.
