Gold Coast Gadabouts

Our newest branch, the Gold Coast Gadabouts, has just been formed.  The first muster is scheduled for the weekend from Friday, 22nd February, and is to be held at the Tamborine Mountain Caravan and Camping Park.

More details are available in the events listing.

Volunteers Wanted

We need you!

With three committees under way and beginning to get stuck into their allotted tasks we need to bolster their numbers with more volunteers.

Independent Camping Committee

 Chairman Don Reid is looking for representation from every State so that he can compile an accurate picture of what's available throughout Australia for camping either at no cost or at budget rates. Once we have the information we will look at areas where some action is needed to protect and increase the availability of facilities for our members.

Promotions and Marketing Committee

Chairman Barry Konemann's committee is charged with promoting membership, obtaining sponsorship and Nomad advertising and in general ‘selling' the club. He has a couple of committee members already but Barry would welcome a few more helpers.

Annual Muster and AGM Committee

Chairman Gary Duncan and his committee have the task of finding a venue and making the arrangements for our second Annual Muster and the AGM. Once the date and venue is finalised I'm sure they will be looking for more help.

ACC History made at Belongil Fields - UPDATED

Nearly one hundred and fifty members and guests gathered at Belongil Fields Caravan Park in beautiful Byron Bay in NSW for the first ever National Muster and AGM of the Australian Caravan Club.

In a weekend crammed with activities, the fully catered dinner on Saturday night was a highlight and members were surprised and delighted to find they each received a souvenir wine glass, courtesy of Caravan World, and a free glass of wine to start the evening’s festivities. The popularity of the glasses was shown later in the evening when surplus glasses were put up for auction. Spirited bidding saw increasing valueplaced on the glasses until the final pair, plus a bottle of wine, were knocked down by auctioneer Lionel for an incredible $125! Thanks Gary and Pam.


Great entertainment was provided by the talented ‘Chris and the Grey’ as award winning bush poet Merv Webster and his partner Chris like to be called.
