Our Club’s Kids In Tow or K.I.T. is a Special Interest Group for our members who enjoy camping with their children or grandchildren. K.I.T. musters are special organised events over a weekend or in school holidays for parents or grandparents to attend with their children or grandchildren. K.I.T. is very active in Victoria and South-East Queensland and working hard to establish K.I.T. in other States.
So if you enjoy camping with your children or grandchildren, why not join our Club, the Australian Caravan Club, the Club for ALL RVers …where Friendships and Adventure begin today?
We welcome owners of caravans, camper-trailers, motorhomes, campervans, 5th wheelers and slide-on campers.
Our Peak Hill Chairman’s Muster is now under way with the muster being officially opened by Parkes Shire Councillor Louise O’Leary at Happy Hour this afternoon. Cr O’Leary welcomed our members to Peak Hill and gave our members a briefing about the many attractions that the region has to offer.
A beautiful sunrise promises a great start for our 70 members who will be attending the first day of our Peak Hill Chairman’s Muster.
Today our Chairman will be hosting an afternoon tea for members attending their first Chairman’s Muster at 2pm, followed by the Official Opening of the Peak Hill Chairman’s Muster by a representative of the Parkes Shire Council.
Our Club’s Target 500 bumper stickers have arrived! Preparing for arrivals at our Peak Hill Chairman’s Muster, ACC Lakeside Drifters’ member and muster co-ordinator Leigh Marshall wasted no time to be the first to proudly apply his sticker to the rear of his tug.
Watch out for the bumper stickers as they indicate the driver is a member of our Club, the Australian Caravan Club, the Club for ALL RVers …where Friendships and Adventure begin. Our members are more than happy to tell you all about our Club and welcome any enquiries.
The great hospitality and welcome afforded by our Hurry Slowly Farm Stay Hosts Peter and Wendy, stand out in the comments made by ACC members on the Farm Stay website.
Located only 6 kilometres from the Dubbo CBD, 3 kilometres from a major shopping complex and more importantly for our gentlemen, 2 kilometres from Bunnings, at Hurry Slowly Farm Stay you will find easily accessible level sites.
Here, you can relax and wake up to the sound of birds, in a very quiet place to leave your van while site seeing…and there is plenty to see and do in and around Dubbo.
