Broken Creek Bush Camp just 15km west of Benalla in Victoria was the venue for another successful muster of our ACC Drovers. The camp is built around an old sand quarry which is now home to a variety of water birds.
Our Drovers are one of our branches with members who prefer to freedom camp in natural settings for their musters. They like to go ‘off the grid’.
Eight vans were present and apart from a sprinkle of rain one night, the weather was warm and mostly sunny. Nights were cool and the fire in the huge and well-furnished camp kitchen, with a plentiful supply of wood, was most welcome.
Our Drovers were kept busy while mustering. Some members visited local markets, some spent much of the time around the fire reading or crafting and others wandered round the thriving township of Benalla were they enjoyed the extensive variety of street art and some first-rate bakeries. All enjoyed a visit to the Goorambat Railway hotel for an excellent lunch and a visit to the “silo art” at Goorambat and at Devenish. Saturday night saw a customary camp oven dinner where a variety of tasty meals were prepared and shared.

The Australian Caravan Club (ACC) scored half a century in Ballarat last weekend with the formation of the 50th branch of our Club.
The ACC Eureka Bandits branch was formed last Friday night when interested RVers gathered at the Sebastopol Bowling Club for a bistro meal. After the meal, the branches’ inaugural meeting was held and a committee elected.
The new branch with a good starting base of 19 members will service RVers living in the Ballarat region and its surrounds.
“The formation of our 50th branch is most certainly an exciting achievement for our Club and its members,” said our ACC Chairman Craig. “Our Club is constantly growing with new branches forming to fill in the gaps in areas where we have no branch structure. The formation of the ACC Eureka Bandits fills a gap in the Ballarat region.”
“Our branches provide a great social environment for RVers to get away for a weekend, a week, and on a tagalong with like-minded people and make the most of their RV.”
“I congratulate the new branch committee of president Angela Jones, secretary Trudi MacPherson and treasurer Bruce Haynes. Special thanks must also go to our ACC Victorian Membership Support Representative Derek Hale who put in a lot of work to bring our new Ballarat branch to fruition.”
Newly elected ACC Eureka Bandits branch president Angela said that members present at the meeting were very enthusiastic to see a new branch of the ACC in their area. “We are all very excited and really looking forward to our first muster together,” Angela said.
“The dinner and meeting at the Sebastopol Bowling Club gave us all a chance to relax and to get to know each other. I’m sure we are going to have some very enjoyable and fun times,” she said.
Any RVer requiring further information about the ACC or its Eureka Bandits branch can contact the ACC on 1800 734 493. To join our Club, click here
