Why Join a Caravan Club
Question: What is a caravan club?
Answer: A group of caravan/recreational vehicle owners with an interest in travelling one weekend in each month.
Usually, this involves towing your van up to 300km to a Caravan Park.
Often the destination is chosen for a particular feature, such as a beach, or to coincide with a local festival.
Your investment of thousands of dollars is wasted standing inyour driveway.
Caravan Club members have such a good time at Club Rallies they want to share it with you. If your caravan is parked in the back yard and is only brought out at Christmas and Easter, now is the time to dust off the spider webs and use it.
You are invited to contact our Club Secretary to discuss our activities and program.
If it sounds like a good 'fit' you will be invited to attend a few rallies (usually 2 or 3) to see if you've found your Perfect Match. Any fees, joining fees and subscriptions can be discussed with the Club Secretary.
The Club publishes a monthly Newsletter with news of past and future rallies and articles of interest to members.
Where do we go?:
The Club compiles a proposed program up to a year ahead and most will ask for expressions of interest in attending a particular venue.
You will be asked to confirm your ability to attend closer to the event. (We know life goes on so attendance is not compulsory.) The Club travels about 300km on a 2-day weekend and will go further afield. This provides the option to see some of our great country within the safety of a congenial group.
How do we get there?.·
Caravanners make their own way to the rally venue in their own time and at their own pace. Generally the rally officially starts late Friday afternoon and continues to the conclusion of morning tea on Sunday.
Most choose to arrive a day or two earlier than the 'official' rally and leave a few days later.
When you belong to a Caravan Club you know that there are always like-minded, friendly people to travel with and who will greet you when you arrive.
What will we do?.· Entertainment can be organised, depending on the location.
If there is a Festival or Show in the town members would be free to attend the activities.
Other entertainment may vary from a sausage sizzle, car observation run, games evening, film show, fancy dress evening, dance, card games etc. Attendance is optional - but always fun.
For many, the daily Happy Hour is the time to have a chat and get to know your fellow travellers. At most rallies there is a shared meal or lunch or dinner at a hotel or cafe.
Every two years a State Rally is held, when members from all clubs meet for a joint rally. And every three years a National Rally is held in a selected regional location.
