Repco revs up the savings

The warmer weather is finally here, which can mean only one thing: it's officially road trip season. If you're planning to hit the road this spring, get your car ready with 20 per cent off at Repco until October 31. Grab that magentic phone holder you've been wanting, top up your oil or get your auto baby looking brand new with 20 per cent off when you show your RACV Member card. 

Get lost in a maze

Step into a scene from Harry Potter and try to navigate your way through a 27-year-old hedge maze. Maze House, which is 10 minutes from Daylesford and Creswck, offers fun for big kids and small, with life-size connect four and other carnival games to enjoy once you find your way through the leafy labyrinth. Maze navigation is thirsty work, so treat yourself to a coffee and cake, or a Devonshire tea, in the milkbar cafe afterward. While you're in the neighbourhood, book a stay at RACV Goldfields Resort, with 25 per cent off accommodation for RACV Members. 

Discover Melbourne's best dumplings 

Melbourne is the ultimate foodie paradise and, when it comes to seriously delectable dumplings, the city is hard to beat. And what better way to discover the Melbourne's hidden meat-filled pastry delights than by joining a Walk Melbourne tour hosted by a local dumpling connoisseur. As well as sampling pot stickers from four of the city's best dumpling dealers, you can also tick 'tried Melbourne's hottest chilli sauce' off your to-do list. RACV members can save 10 per cent on tours.

*Many tickets need to be pre-purchased online; always read the terms and conditions before booking.
