Following the success of two further and final RV Industry Workshops presented by the Australian Caravan Club (ACC) yesterday for the Liverpool Plains Shire business community, the workshops have been proclaimed as the strengthening of the relationship between businesses on the Liverpool Plains and RVers visiting the area, by ACC Chairman Craig Humphrey.
The final two RV Industry Workshops held at Quirindi Racecourse yesterday morning, and at Spring Ridge Community Hall last night, complemented the first workshop held on Tuesday night.
“When the Liverpool Plains Shire Council invited the ACC to present an RV-Friendly Business Seminar aimed at local business and the community and focussing on how to capture the burgeoning RV market, we welcomed the opportunity,” said Mr Humphrey. “Over 24 and 25 January, we have presented three workshops.”
“I can only describe the workshops as nothing less than the strengthening of the relationship between businesses on the Liverpool Plains and RVers visiting the area.”
“In fact, the workshops proved far more successful than we, the ACC, ever imagined they would be.”
The workshops commenced with a presentation with discussion topics including awareness-raising of the value of the RV industry to regional communities, how communities and individual businesses can encourage RVers to visit, and opportunities for business to access the burgeoning RV market.
“The workshops were professionally presented, and a number of our club members put in a tremendous effort to ensure their success.”
“On behalf of our club, I take this opportunity to thank our deputy chairman Tom Smith, club director Graham Christie, and club official John Snell from our Policy and Town Support Committee for what can only be described as excellent work in developing and presenting these workshops. Some of our presenters had to travel hundreds of kilometres to the Liverpool Plains.”
“Their spouses Sandra, Kaye and Kathy must also be thanked for their support.”
On completion of the Spring Ridge seminar last night, deputy chairman Tom Smith said, “The Spring Ridge community were particularly interested in ways of encouraging RVers to spend more time at their freedom camp. The longer RVers stay, the more RVers will spend economically supporting local businesses.”
“Following the success of the Liverpool Plains RV Industry Workshops, the ACC is happy to engage in discussions with other local authorities about undertaking similar presentations to their businesses and local community,” Mr Humphrey said.

The launch of RV Industry Workshops by the Australian Caravan Club (ACC) was a winner last night with more than 20 members of the Liverpool Plains Shire business community attending at the Quirindi Racecourse for the first of three workshops to be held in the Liverpool Plains Shire, ACC Chairman Craig Humphrey said today.
Three industry workshops are now being presented to members of the Liverpool Plains Chamber of Commerce and business community by the ACC. The workshops are supported by the Liverpool Plains Shire Council.
The first workshop was held last night at the Quirindi Racecourse. A second workshop is planned for tonight at the Spring Ridge Community Hall. Due to demand, a third had to be added to the schedule.
“More than 20 people attended the RV Industry Workshop last night at the Quirindi Racecourse,” said Mr Humphrey. “The workshop proved to be a real winner for both the business and RV community.”
“We have received some very positive feedback from attendees,” said ACC Deputy Chairman Tom Smith who has been on the ground in Quirindi with members of the Club’s Policy and Town Support Team.
“In fact the demand for the workshops has been so great, that we have had to increase the number of workshops from two to three with a third one held this morning for those who were unable to get to last night’s workshop due to work and other commitments.”
The workshop commenced with a presentation with discussion topics including awareness-raising of the value of the RV industry to regional communities, how communities and individual businesses can encourage RVers to visit, and opportunities for business to access the burgeoning RV market. It concluded with a Question and Answer session.
“All ACC members in attendance were involved in the Question and Answer segment and a lot of good conversation and feedback was enjoyed over refreshments.”
“It was also humbling to have the Liverpool Plains Shire Council Mayor Cr Andrew Hope, thank the ACC and me personally for all that we have done in helping the LPSC,” said Mr Smith.
“The objects of the ACC are aimed at promoting the use of recreational vehicles and the RVing lifestyle throughout Australia for the benefit of its members. These industry workshops are part of what the ACC is all about,” Mr Humphrey said.

Australian Caravan Club (ACC) members travelling to and from Tasmania now have the advantage of staying at the Club’s first Farm Stay in Tasmania, ACC Chairman Craig Humphrey said today.
The ACC’s Farm Stay Scheme is an initiative that arose when a group of ACC members expressed an interest in making space available on their properties for fellow Club members to stay short term, free of charge. Strict rules are in place for users of the Farm Stay Scheme based on the laws of the relevant authorities.
‘The ACC is delighted to welcome our very first Farm Stay in Tasmania,’ said Mr Humphrey. ‘The Burrong Farm Stay is sited only 30 minutes from the Spirit of Tasmania dock. I expect it will become a very highly sought after stopover for our members travelling to and from Tasmania.’
‘The ACC is very grateful to Burrong Farm Stay hosts and ACC members Andrew and Karen Porter for opening up their property to fellow ACC members.’
ACC members staying at the site will find it is close to Cradle Mountain and only 15 minutes from the beach and Sprent. Mt Roland, Sheffield, Gunns Plains Caves and Leven Canyon are all less than an hour’s drive away.
Tasmanian-based ACC member Bernie Barnwell recently stayed at Burrong. ‘This campground is a beautiful place and Andrew and Karen are exceptional hosts,’ Mr Barnwell said.
Well-behaved pets are welcome and ACC members are asked to please phone Andrew and Karen beforehand to check availability. Water may be available, depending on the season.
Further details about the site and contact details for Burrong are available for ACC members on the ACC website under the On the Road / RVSTAY / Farm Stay tab.
