ACC members spend up big at Peak Hill muster

Have your say

AUSTRALIAN Caravan Club members poured nearly $17,000 into Peak Hill and its surrounds during their recent five-day muster in NSW, chairman Craig Humphrey has revealed.

"This represents an average spend of about $540 for each RV or around $107 a day," he said.

"The outcomes from this muster prove that RVers and local communities can both reap the rewards that come when we work together and obtain a beneficial outcome for all of us."

About 60 members in 31 RVs attended the Chairman’s Muster at the Peak Hill Showgrounds.

They dined out, bought groceries, fuel and other essentials, visited a local farm, toured The Dish, had a guided tour of Snake Rock and enjoyed a big raffle night at the Peak Hill Ex-Services and Citizens Club.

They also held a 'Bring Out the Artist Within' art class with a well-known local artist, took part in barefoot bowls, an historic walk around town and a sunset tour of a gold mine.

Community and club came out winners during the gathering

Proceeds from the club's muster raffle, which raised $226, were donated to Peak Hill's Frazer Court Refurbishment Committee.

Mr Humphrey said both the local community and his club members came out winners during the gathering.

"The ACC would like to express its sincere appreciation and thanks to the Parkes Shire Council, Peak Hill Business and Tourism, Peak Hill Showgrounds and its caretakers (who were fantastic hosts), Leighton Davies from the Peak Hill Caravan Park, the local Wiradjuri people and the many other members of the local community who helped make our muster the success that it was," he said.

"This muster was a truly unforgettable experience.

"Our members who attended returned to their homes in Queensland, Victoria, South Australia and New South Wales with memories and new friends they will cherish forever."

Mr Humphrey said several locals joined the club during the muster, which he described as a "huge success".

The club is now looking forward to its national muster at Bingara in New South Wales in October.

"It is the highlight of our calendar each year and Bingara promises to be an experience not to be missed for both ACC members and the Bingara community,” Mr Humphrey said.

"We are continuing to receive enquiries about our RV Industry Workshops, which help communities to take advantage of the expanding RV tourism industry.

"Our club is happy to enter into discussions with local authorities and chambers of commerce about presenting workshops in their communities."
