Mayor Dempsey: "golden opportunity"

Mayor Dempsey: "golden opportunity"

Decision "not taken lightly"

CMCA rally will be 'golden opportunity' for traders

Have your say

MORE than a thousand motorhomes, campervans and caravans will descend on Queensland's Rum City in October.

Their owners are expected to pour tens of thousands of dollars into Bundaberg's local economy as around 2000 RVers attend the 32nd Campervan and Motorhome Club of Australia national rally.

As a forerunner, Bundaberg Regional Council hosted an information session for local businesses to gain an insight into how they could help club members attending the nine-day event.

Mayor Jack Dempsey said he attended a similar rally in Pontville, Tasmania, earlier this year and was "simply in awe" of the opportunities available for local businesses.

"Literally everything from windscreen replacement and repair services, tyre retailers, service clubs, tourist operators and even a dog wash service were among the dozens of local businesses to benefit," he said.

Cr Dempsey described the Bundaberg rally as a "golden opportunity" for local traders.

Rally organisers have decided to acknowledge Bundaberg's connection with pioneer Australian aviator Bert Hinkler, who was born in the city in 1892 .

He will be used as the inspiration for the event's fancy dress Rally Ball!
