More than 200 members of the Australian Caravan Club will be heading to Kingaroy next month for a special club muster.
Club chairman Craig Humphrey said the muster would be held at Kingaroy Showgrounds from March 9-14.
“Registrations for the Kingaroy Chairman’s Muster have far exceeded expectations,” Mr Humphrey said. “So far, we have over 200 people coming in 105 RVs and registrations have not yet closed.
“I have to say, the attractions that the South Burnett region has to offer have sparked quite a wave of interest amongst members.”
Mr Humphrey said members would share friendship and swap travelling tales, but would also have plenty to see and do during their stay.
“Activities on the proposed agenda include a night visit to the Kingaroy Observatory, a visit to the Endeavour Biscuit Factory, attending South Burnett Wine and Food in the Park, a catered dinner, and morning tea at Mulanah Gardens,” he said.
“Our club is very grateful to the support that we have been receiving from the South Burnett Regional Council, South Burnett Show Society, and the people of the Kingaroy community who have provided tremendous assistance to our muster committee with the organisation of this event.
“The proceeds of any raffles will be donated to LifeFlight.
“Regions in which our Club’s Chairman and national musters are held receive an economic boost as members shop, dine out, buy fuel, purchase groceries souvenirs and other necessities, and visit local attractions.
“Our club data shows that over the past five years, ACC members attending our annual musters have injected in excess of $1,020,000 shared over the five communities where the musters have been held.”
