High Street Shepparton Vic
17-23 October 2016
Due to the uncertainty of the tenure of the existing Committee of Management who control the Yarrawonga Holiday Park and the inability to secure an agreement with the ACC, the decision was made to find an alternative venue for the ACC 10th National Muster in 2016.
The exciting news is that we have managed to secure Shepparton Showgrounds. The bonus is that improvements and alterations to the Showgrounds have been completed and we will have the grounds to ourselves. The controlling body, Agricultural Society, have welcomed us in a very friendly way and are a pleasure to deal with.
So, for the southerners going north, the travel distance has decreased, but unfortunately for those coming south - you'll have an extra hour to travel.
Hope to see you all there, in 15 months time.

Our 33rd branch has been formed in the Mackay Region. The ACC Sugar City Pioneers has been given board approval after a meeting at Sarina Showgrounds. The branch members are made up from existing ACC members as well as members that joined at the recent Mackay Caravan Show. We also had a 4 couples sign up before the meeting. The branch starts with 18 vans and members as far away as Bowen.
Thanks to the members of the Sunshine Nomads and Capricornia Tourers who attended the muster at Sarina and helped with the branch formation. We welcome the new branch and look forward to visiting one of your musters when escaping the southern winters in the coming years.
In the latest edition of Caravan and Motorhome on Tour magazine (No. 216), there is an excellent article about touring the Scenic Rim that is well worth a read for those members who will be attending our 2015 National Muster at Beaudesert, especially if you are considering staying in the area for a few days either before or after the muster.
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.
