Save the app that could save your life.

‘Emergency +’ is a national app developed by Australia's emergency services and their Government and industry partners, helping people to call the right number at the right time, anywhere in Australia. The app uses a mobile phone's GPS functionality so callers can provide emergency call-takers with their location information as determined by their smart phone. ‘Emergency+’ also includes SES and Police Assistance Line numbers as options, so non-emergency calls are made to the most appropriate number.

When calling Triple Zero (000), remember to stay focused, stay relevant, and stay on the line. Before you call, ask yourself:

* Is someone seriously injured or in need of urgent medical help?
* Is your life or property being threatened?
* Have you just witnessed a serious accident or crime?

If you answered 'Yes' to any of these questions, call Triple Zero (000). Triple Zero calls are free.

Cover art

Aiming your HDTV antenna it's easy and free!

This application helps you discover digital TV towers (DTV) close to you and it helps you find the bearing from your location so that you can point you antenna to catch those stations. It works based on a list of antennas broadcasting digital TV over-the-air (OTA) in the United States, Australia, Canada, United Kingdom, New Zealand, Austria, Argentina, Brazil, Portugal, Colombia and Uruguay.

In the US it can also display the FCC calculated broadcast area over the map!

Especially useful when you camping in your camper van, so you can get the best TV reception wherever you are.

Be aware that compasses in phones are not very good and they are often wrong or stick. That cannot be corrected from a software application such as this one. Sometimes it's useful to “calibrate” the device's compass by performing movements with the phone describing an "8".

About The Club

 

Our Club History

The Australian Caravan Club (ACC) was initially founded in September 2006 at the Golden Beach Caravan Park at Caloundra in Queensland.

A group of caravanners felt that the then existing RV Clubs did not focus enough on protecting and representing the interests of owners of caravans.

Since then our Club has grown and evolved to include the owners of pop top caravans, motorhomes, slide-on campers, camper-trailers, campervans and fifth wheelers. While our membership base has changed, our simple foundations have remained. Our focus now is to protect and represent the interests of all RVers, not just caravanners.

Under its Constitution, our Club’s main objective is to ‘promote the use of recreational vehicles and the RVing lifestyle throughout Australia’.

 

With a strong focus on advocacy, our Club is a voice for all RVers to all three tiers of government and the RV industry on issues ranging from freedom camps and rest areas, to RV lifestyle issues and manufacturing defects.

While many RVers join our Club to strengthen our impact as a strong force to protect our RV lifestyle, RVers also join for the social environment or member benefits that membership of our Club brings.

Our Branches

The first branch of the ACC to form was the ACC Sunshine Nomads on 13 April 2007 in Queensland.

The second branch, the ACC Southern Nomads, was established later in the year on 12 October 2007 with a view to establishing a branch of the Club for caravanners living in Victoria.

From these humble beginnings, the ACC has grown from strength to strength. We now have 49 branches at various locations around Australia from Townsville to Perth, including Tasmania.

Our branches provide a great social environment for members to get together with like-minded people, discuss tech tips, and share friendships and adventure at branch musters, tagalongs, and other branch activities held throughout the year.

To find a branch near you, click here.

Our Special Interest Groups

Catering to the special interests of our members is something that our Club feels strongly about. So with a diverse membership base, to cater for our members who share similar interests, our Club has established a number of Special Interest Groups (S.I.Gs) –

✽ The Lone Trekkers (for solo travellers). For further information, click here.

✽ F.T.T. (Full time Travellers). For further information, click here.

✽ Armed Forces Personnel. For further information, click here.

✽ Owners of English Vans. For further information, click here.

✽ Owners of LOTUS Vans. For further information, click here.

✽ Pets Co-Operative. For further information, click here.

Our S.I.Gs are in addition to our branches. Club members can be a member of a branch and a member of a S.I.G. at the same time.

Club and Branch Events

Each of our branches organises upwards of six musters per year.

Branch musters are always an enjoyable occasion for all attendees. Musters are generally held over a weekend at a location within easy reach of branch members. The number of attendees varies at each muster depending on the size of the branch and availability of its members.

Each year a National Muster is held to coincide with the Club’s Annual General Meeting. The National Muster is a much larger, organised gathering held over a number of days at various venues around Australia –

✽ 2007 – Byron Bay NSW

✽ 2008 – Casino NSW

✽ 2009 – Mildura VIC

✽ 2010 – Maryborough QLD

✽ 2011 – Bingara NSW

✽ 2012 – Mallacoota VIC

✽ 2013 – Mudgee NSW

✽ 2014 – Lucindale SA

✽ 2015 – Beaudesert QLD

✽ 2016 – Shepparton VIC

✽ 2017 – Bingara NSW

Our 2018 National Muster will take place at Denmark in Western Australia from 14 to 21 October 2018. As well has hosting the Club’s Annual General Meeting, the National Muster includes seminars conducted by various experts on RV related topics, traders’ stalls, Club committee updates, happy hours, a muster dinner, games, and craft. Tours are usually arranged to local attractions. There is always something for everyone.

Our Chairman also hosts at least one Chairman’s muster per year. Our Chairman’s musters are smaller and differ from our National Musters in that they are less formal. These musters are held in a different State each year. They provide an opportunity for members living in the region to chat one on one with our Club Chairman and other directors in attendance, on RV and Club issues in an informal atmosphere.

The Nomad

Our Club publishes a full colour magazine, The Nomad, containing a wealth of topics including articles on Club News, technical tips, RV lifestyle and travel, RV product profiles, upcoming musters, branch contacts and our Club Shop catalogue.

The Nomad is issued electronically to members each quarter. Members can elect to pay a small annual fee and receive a hard glossy print version by post. To view electronic versions of The Nomad on our website, click here.

Club Website

Our Club maintains a dynamic website containing a large amount of information of interest to our members and website viewers.

Latest news, an events calendar, a membership directory, an active members’ forum, lists of member benefits and Farm Stays, an Ask the Caravan Guru service for members only, useful links and a What’s On page, are a few of the facilities on the site available for our members.

Our Facebook page

The ACC Facebook page is another news source and social tool for our members and other RVers to keep abreast of RV and Club issues and to contact us via message or visitor post. To view our Facebook page, click here.
