Have your say

AUSTRALIAN Caravan Club members injected nearly $200,000 into the Victorian city of Warrnambool and its surrounds during their recent seven-day National Muster, it has been revealed.

In fact, some were so impressed with the city which marks the western end of the Great Ocean Road they remained in the area for several weeks afterwards.

"And this added expenditure not included in the rally tally," club chairman Craig Humphrey said.

Over 300 members attended the seven-day muster at the Surfside Holiday Park.

"The National Muster provided an atmosphere for them to chat informally with me and other board directors about club matters,” Mr Humphrey said.

"At least five happy hours, a first timer's happy hour, catered dinner and morning teas throughout the event provided ample opportunity for this."

He said the club was "most appreciative" of the sponsorship and support it received from local businesses in Warrnambool.

The muster featured organised activities.

"For our members who like to experience a region and its history, there were visits to the Great Ocean Road, Timboon and district, Port Fairy and Koroit as well as local trips," Mr Humphrey said.

An afternoon of guest speakers informed members about local geology and fauna, gave tips on travelling with pets and told about new initiatives with the Flying Doctor Service and outback services.

Members also supported a fundraising charity afternoon tea for Food Share, which was supported by Tasty Plate.

The Lions Club supplied a charity breakfast.

ACC members are now focussing on next year's Chairman’s Muster planned for Charters Towers in Queensland from May 14.
