Eleven members of the ACC have made a long journey to the UK to attend the Caravan & Motorhome Club UK 2019 National Rally this week.
The rally has attracted over 2,500 RVs with ACC members recognised as having travelled the furtherest distance to the event.
Meanwhile back in Australia, several members of our Club made the journey to Barcaldine to participate in attempts by the Australian Motorhoming Lions Club to break Guinness world records last weekend.
While it appears records for the longest line of LED lights and the largest parade of RVs to travel in convoy were broken by the 930 RVs in attendance, it could be 3 months before official confirmation.
If you are travelling in Tasmania take the time to check out where the ACC Tassie Travellers are having their musters. That’s what ACC Director John Snell did during his ten weeks touring the apple isle. Travelling with his wife Kathy and travel buddies Graham & Judy Humphreys (members of the NSW branch Golden Westerners) they managed to catch up with the Tassie Travellers at their most recent muster held at Old Macs campground, Norwood (on the outskirts of Launceston) in May.
A very good roll-up with four days of fun and the opportunity for us to make new friends. They certainly treated us as special guests. They love their Happy Hours sitting around the camp fire (they had two wood heaters to cater for the large numbers) reliving the day’s events. Like us you won’t be disappointed when you catch up with the Tassie Travellers.
A beach party 'dress-up' communal dinner, half-day tagalong to explore the gems of the local region, morning tea at a Corindi Beach Café, dinner at the Amble Inn at Corindi Beach, and games of Finska, Toss-A-Washer, Trivia, and 'Price is Right' were some of the highlights enjoyed by our ACC Eastern Explorers at their fun-filled branch muster at ACC member benefit provider Gateway Lifestyle Lorikeet at Arrawarra near Woolgoolga last weekend.
Members of the ACC Northern Bushwhackers who were mustering at Coffs Harbour, travelled to Lorikeet to join in a delicious communal morning tea on Sunday morning.
What fun our ACC members share together - the ACC...where Friendships and Adventure Begin.
Located on the South-Eastern tip of South Australia’s Yorke Peninsula, Edithburgh’s Caravan Park is the perfect base to explore the beauty of the peninsula.
Overlooking one of the best boat ramps on the peninsula, it is located in close proximity to surf beaches, rugged coast as well as child safe beaches and a tidal swimming pool.
With accommodation options ranging from unpowered sites to luxury executive sea front spa cabins, Edithburgh Caravan Park has something to suit every taste and budget.
If travelling from the eastern states, a nice spot to rest awhile before heading North, so have a look at this great offer:

Both the Murray Bridge community and Australian Caravan Club (ACC) members are winners after our recent Chairman’s muster
Around 170 ACC members in 78 RVs and several cabins attended the ACC Chairman’s Muster at the Murray Bridge Marina and Caravan Park from 13th – 20th March 2019.
“During the course of the muster our members injected almost $75,000 into the Murray Bridge community and its surrounds, which represents an average spend of around $850 per RV. ACC members supported local businesses and clubs and were overwhelmed by the warm and friendly reception they received from the local community” said ACC Chairman Craig Humphrey.
Over the duration of the muster, ACC members dined out, purchased groceries, fuel and other essentials. Members also visited Willow Point winery and members were fortunate to visit ’The Bend’ Motorsport Park near Tailem Bend for a short tour of their precinct and view the wonderful display of racing cars of days gone by. A highlight was the 3 hour luncheon cruise on the Captain Proud River Boat, enjoyed by all. Another highlight was an informative talk on the history of the Murray River and the river boat trade by Captain Chris Veenstra. Other activities included self-drive trips to the township of Hahndorf and many visited the Monarto free range Zoo, the largest in the world by acreage!
“Planning for this has taken over a year and the ACC has had great support around the City” said Ralph Michod, ACC member and a Murray Bridge resident.
A special thank you goes out to Mayor Brenton Lewis and Councillors for their crucial support in making the muster a success. “ACC members have visited areas of this great City and they have been overwhelmed with the very positive feedback. This highlights that the Council and community are really working together to showcase our region.” said Ralph Michod, who was part of the local organising committee, including his wife Pat, together with Steve Evans and Barb Barty.
The ACC would like to express our sincere appreciation and thanks to the Rural City of Murray Bridge, the Murray Bridge business community, and the Murray Bridge Marina and Caravan Park, who were fantastic hosts, and the many other members of the local community who helped make our muster the success that it was.
“This muster has been a truly unforgettable experience. Our members who attended will return to their homes across Australia with memories formed and new friends made. The outcome from this muster proves that RVers and local communities can both realise the rewards that result when we work together.” said Chairman Craig Humphrey.
With the Murray Bridge muster behind them, the Club and its members are now looking forward to their national muster at Warrnambool in October. Our national muster is the highlight of the Club’s calendar year and Warrnambool promises to be an experience not to be missed.
