Bushtrekker Branch Formed

The 30th branch of the ACC was formed at the recent Chairman's muster at Maryborough.
This branch will be known as the Bushtrekkers and is centered around the SE of Queensland.
The Bushtrekker's focus will be on independent camping at unpowered venues such as State forests, National Parks and other more natural campgrounds. Musters and tag-a-longs are planned with an emphasis on active participation in visiting local attractions and outdoor activities.
Their first muster will be held at Biggriggen Camp Grounds, near Rathdowney, from August 14th to 19th.
Any current ACC members or others interested and wishing to come along to visit are welcome to attend.

(Please note that this is an unpowered venue though showers and toilets are available.)


A new Branch for Western Australia

Following a  highly successful 2014 Perth Caravan and Camping Show and follow up Meet and Greet at Willowbrook Farm Caravan Park, West Gin Gin, the board approved the formation of a third branch for WA on the 8th May 2014. To be known as the ACC Sunset Coast Travellers the branch has started with 25 enthusiastic members (13 member units).

All branch members have now met for the first time at their inaugural muster held at Goomalling on the weekend of 13th- 15th June 2014 where the new branch committee was elected and a great time was had by all.  Judging by the friendliness, enthusiasm and commitment, it is apparent that the ACC Sunset Coast Travellers have begun on an extremely sound footing.

We welcome the ACC Sunset Coast Travellers as the 28th Branch of the ACC and trust that members have many happy musters in the years ahead.

Held at the Rural Youth Centre at Carrick in Northern Tasmania, the Tassie Travellers manned a Show Stand for the ACC.  760 exhibitors attracted almost 60,000 people over 3 days & we had our share.  We talked to about 200 people, handed out 187 applications, signed up about 15 on the day with many opting to join online because of application details & payment methods.

Topics & issues were similar to any caravan group with the Spirit of Tasmania access & cost being top of the list.  Much forum comment on the Spirit revolves around visitors to Tasmania---spare a thought for Tasmanians heading for the warmer climes-we battle for a booking as much or more than you as visitors.  We believe access & capacity relief may be in sight, we’ll keep you posted.

ACC lobbying efforts, KIT & Lone Trekkers, the benefits of Branches in all States, budget camping, Insurance & a myriad of other topics kept 6 of us busy.  It was interesting to see people actively seeking us out, looking for advice & asking questions.  No touting needed!

The Show has provided good publicity for the ACC, showed us where we can expand as a Branch, & highlighted the growing RV  community.  Worth all our efforts with a big thank you for all the advice we received in the lead up & a great team effort from our volunteers.

If you get a chance to visit AGFEST while you’re in Tasmania, do so. It’s held at the same time each year with exhibitors catering for every possible interest-it’s not just an agricultural field day, it attracts as many townies as country people.

The young people of Rural Youth run an exceptional event-it’s worth a visit to see how they make it all happen, & contribute $30M to the economy on the way.

The way they run the car parking in paddocks has to be seen to be believed!

New branch formed in Sydney

We are excited to announce the formation of a new branch in the Sydney region named the “ACC Sydney Explorers”.

A muster was recently held in Budgewoi, NSW and 26 ACC members (14 vans) formed the new branch. The members are primarily from the Sydney Region and surrounding areas, any members of ACC living in or near Sydney who would like to join the new branch would be most welcome.
Judging by the friendliness and enthusiasm demonstrated by the new branch members at Budgewoi, the success of the ACC Sydney Explorers will be assured. We have already arranged for our first muster in May at Norah Head and are busy planning the program for the next twelve months.
The Sydney Explorers would like to acknowledge the contribution and assistance of the ACC Sydney City Slickers. The formation of the new branch was set up and facilitated by members of that branch, their help was invaluable.

New Branch in Brisbane Area

“The Brisbane Roustabouts Branch has been established and is already getting started with a twelve month member and family programme about to have approval sought and advertised.
As the name Brisbane suggests, membership of this Branch will primarily come from the Gold and Sunshine Coast, Brisbane metropolitan and Ipswich areas.  
An innovative approach is to have a Branch Office open from 8 am to midday Monday to Friday.  The Office will handle the administration of Branch activity as well as memberships.

The Branch Office contact details are 07 5573 7253 / 0412614260, email is This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

The Branch has also established the ‘Gotago’ Newsletter and this will shortly be on the website.
The Branch emphasis is starting with a small membership and as the reputation for camaraderie and well run musters; tag-alongs evolves, so will the membership expand.
The Branch will have its first ‘real’ muster at Maleny in February where, apart from socialising, the first general meeting will finalise the management team as well as discuss various topics associated with making the Branch prosper.
