Caravan club pours $247,000 into Denmark

Have your say

FREE-SPENDING caravanners injected a whopping quarter of a million dollars into a small Western Australian coastal community's economy.

Over 380 members of the nationwide Australian Caravan Club descended on the township of Denmark for the club's annual national muster.

And during the seven-day event, local businesses benefited to the tune of $247,000.

"In fact, some of our members explored the region for a couple of weeks and this expenditure is not included in the tally," club chairman Craig Humphrey said.

The muster, held at the BIG 4 Ocean Beach Holiday Park, was officially opened by local State Member Terry Redmond.



THE Australian Caravan Club's 2020 Chairman's Muster will be held at Charters Towers showground in Queensland from May 14 to 19, it has been announced. Chairman Craig Humphrey said he was "greatly encouraged" by the openness and warm reception the club's representatives had received from the local regional council and community. Deputy Mayor Sonia Bennetto said the area was "thrilled" to be hosting the event.


It provided an atmosphere for club members to chat informally with Mr Humphrey and other board directors about club matters.

"At least five happy hours, a first timers' happy hour, catered dinner and morning teas throughout the muster provided ample opportunity for this," Mr Humphrey said.

"One of my personal highlights was the dragon boating one morning – a first for a national muster and for many of the 36 participants.

"Our club is most appreciative of the sponsorship and support it received from the local businesses in Denmark," he added.

For members who like to experience a region and its history, there were visits to the National Anzac Centre, Whaling Station, the Gap and the Natural Bridge in Albany together with many wine and food outings around Denmark.

A comprehensive presentation on vehicle and weight issues by Lovells Springs' national sales manager Dragan Vasic drew a large audience.

Members also supported a fundraising charity afternoon tea for local Black Dog Ride, with $500 provided to the charity.

An additional $425 donation was made to Angel Flight following a presentation by chief executive Marjorie Pagani.

At the annual general meeting, Deb Bott was elected a director and Mr Humphrey returned as chairman.

ACC members are now focusing the club's 2019 Chairman’s Muster, to be held in Murray Bridge in South Australia from March 14.
