The Australian Caravan Club (ACC) is delighted to accept the invitation of Mackay Regional Councillors to actively participate in the consultation phase of the draft Mackay Region RV Strategy, ACC Chairman Craig Humphrey said today.
The invitation was extended to the Club during a joint three branch muster of ACC members held at the Sarina Showgrounds last weekend.
“Our Club has assisted and is in the process of currently assisting, regional councils and local communities with strategies to ensure that both the local communities where RVers visit and the visiting RVers benefit from the growing RV market,” Mr Humphrey said. “We have held several RV Industry Workshops now, and assisted councils with their RV strategies.”
“A survey of our Club members found that they spend an average of just over $100 per day when on the road with their RV. That can account for a lot of income for local businesses.”
ACC members travelled from as far away as Victoria to fill the Sarina Showgrounds last weekend for the special North and Central Queensland muster.
More than 60 members from Victoria, Brisbane, Gladstone, Mackay and Townsville, Club Chairman Craig Humphrey, Club membership director Graham Christie and Past Chairman Lionel Mussell travelled to Sarina for the event.
“The turn-out for the event far exceeded expectations with our ACC Sugar City Pioneer (Mackay region), ACC Tropical Tourers (Townsville region), and ACC Capricornia Tourers (Rockhampton region) branches all competing for the largest number of muster attendees.”
Activities over the weekend included lunch at the General Gordon Hotel following a visit to Kinchant Dam, a presentation by truck driver Peter Lewis from PK’s Driver Training about courtesy on the road between RVers and semi-trailer drivers, and local Mackay Regional Councillors Fran Mann and Karen May provided members with an overview of the Draft Mackay Region RV Strategy.
“As Club Chairman, the event provided me with an opportunity to update our central and north Queensland members on various Club activities and receive feedback, while at the same time enjoy friendships and hear how their members and branches are going,” said Mr Humphrey.
Event organiser Paul Eyles from the ACC Sugar City Pioneers branch said that post muster, he had only received positive feedback on the event from members. “Everyone had a really great time,” he said.
