Rainforest Ramblers new Cairns branch for our Club

Our Club is proud to announce the formation of a new branch in the Cairns region following successful membership recruitment at the Cairns Home, Boating and Caravan Expo last month.

Our Club’s 51st branch, the ACC Rainforest Ramblers, has taken off with a running start boasting an initial 34 members.  The branch will service RVers in Far North Queensland from Cooktown to the Cassowary Coast including Cairns, Kuranda, the Atherton Tablelands and their surrounds.

“Our Club is very proud to announce the formation of our new branch in the Cairns region,” said our ACC Chairman Craig. “The formation of the Rainforest Ramblers is the result of the invaluable efforts of dedicated Club members from our Tropical Tourers branch based in Townsville who staffed a stall at the Cairns Expo.”

“Congratulations to our Tropical Tourers for a job well done.  I also congratulate the members of our new ACC Rainforest Ramblers and its inaugural executive of  Edwin (Eddie) Wickham  (President), Andrea Volpi (Secretary) and Jan Verdon (Treasurer).  This branch is bursting with enthusiasm and I look forward to watching it grow,” Craig said.

Inaugural President Eddie said that the branch had a long list of suggestions for upcoming musters following a recent ‘meet and greet’.  “We are busy planning our first muster for August at the Fishery Falls Caravan Park just South of Cairns,” he said.

“Our group focus is very much about fun, friendship and adventure within the recreational vehicle community.  Bearing that in mind, we have some great ideas for future musters including Undara, Charters Towers, Chillagoe, Mareeba and Karumba to name but a few.”

“We just can’t wait to get out there and enjoy our RVs together.  We invite RVers living in Far North Queensland wishing to make enquiries about joining our new branch to contact the ACC on 1800 734 493,” Eddie said.

Look out for our Club trailer

Our ACC Club Shop conveners Allan and Heather have been busy preparing our new ACC Club trailer ready for its journey to our national muster in Denmark, Western Australia.  Allan and Heather will be departing the Sunshine Coast on 1 October to bring Club Shop merchandise to members at the national muster in the trailer.  If you happen to notice them on the road, please say hello.  You definitely can’t miss noticing them!

The trailer proudly displays our Club logo and slogan – we are the Australian Caravan Club, the Club for ALL RVers …where Friendships and Adventure begin!
