Bimbimbie at Inverell, New South Wales is our ACC Farm Stay of the Month for August.
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. Guidelines are in place for users of the Farm Stay Scheme based on the laws of the relevant authorities. ACC Farm Stays are only available to ACC members.
Hosts John and Cara welcome ACC members to come and stay on their property located 1.5 kilometres from Inverell when they are at home. They have space for up to 6 RVs to be sited comfortably, plus a dump point on site!
Members are asked to comply with A.C.C.E.S.S. guidelines.
While staying at Bimbimbie, there are a number of activities to do in and around Inverell. Members can enjoy boating, fishing, fossicking, plus for our history-lovers there’s the Pioneer Village and the Transport Museum.

Businesses in the South Burnett region will benefit from an RV industry workshop to be conducted by the Australian Caravan Club (ACC) at Kingaroy next month, ACC Chairman Craig Humphrey said today.
The workshop will be held at the Reception Room, Kingaroy Town Hall, Glendon Street, Kingaroy in Queensland and has been set for Tuesday, 5 September 2017 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm.
“This workshop will focus on many topics including the economic benefits that can be gained by local businesses from catering to the needs of the RV traveller, how to engage with RVers, how to encourage RVers to visit, and opportunities to access the growing RV community,” said Mr Humphrey.
“Our Club’s Deputy Chairman Tom Smith, and John Snell from our Policy, Advocacy and Town Support team will be conducting the seminars and speaking on issues relevant to these topics. Two further Club directors will also be in attendance.”
“We consider this workshop will prove to be beneficial not just to local businesses within the South Burnett Regional Council (SBRC) as they reap the economic rewards that can be gained by specifically catering for the RV community, but also to RVers as their wants and needs are met. This is a win / win situation for all.”
SBRC Mayor Cr Keith Campbell welcomed the RV Industry Workshop initiative. “Over the last ten (10) years, our region has been gratified to see a steady increase of Caravan Clubs and RVers travelling through and staying in the South Burnett. By providing local businesses with this industry workshop, it can only increase our tourism profile and the end result is to get the word out there that the South Burnett Region is a ‘must’ when travelling around Queensland and Australia.”
Kingaroy Chamber of Commerce President Rob Fitz-Herbert encouraged all local businesses in the region to attend the workshop and find out how to make the South Burnett Region a must visit venue for RVers.
The Kingaroy workshop follows ACC workshops in New South Wales at Quirindi, Spring Ridge, Warialda and Bingara.
“Seven months after the workshops at Quirindi and Spring Ridge, the Liverpool Plains Shire Council has welcomed research showing rapid and continuing market growth, significant economic value and environmental and social benefits through partnerships with the RV industry. Through the Council and the local community working together, businesses in that region are reaping the economic benefits of catering for RVers’ needs,” said Mr Humphrey.
“The ACC is now developing further regional options within the Club’s Town Support Program and is prepared to work with any local authority or business community wishing to develop a recreational vehicle strategy,” Mr Humphrey said.
