This letter was received by the NSW Association of Caravan Clubs and passed on to us, as it would be of interest to Victorian caravanners travelling through NSW.
Contact Mac to arrange a place, time and date. You might even consider organising a club day so that a number of Vans/Vehicles can be assessed. By doing so the rate per Van/vehicle can be reduced significantly.
2018 Wodonga State Rally
Check the images from the 2018 Wodonga State Rally - it was an oustading success.
Planning has already commenced for the 2021 Sate Rally in the Bendigo area.
Under changes to the Environmental Planning and Assessment Regulation, smoke alarms must be installed in all new and existing moveable dwellings where people sleep (regardless of wether they are registered for road use or not).

Clubs can have their own Web presence
Affiliated clubs who would like to have a web presence and are not sure how to go about it - take a look at how we can help you:
We can give you ONE web page as part of this site to allow you to provide member information to the community - FREE which you can control. See the Clubs | Club Pages option in the Menu for a couple of examples.
Through www.myexpression.net.au you can obtain your own website (any number of pages, emails etc etc). The annual cost of this service is $88 (incl GST) per annum which includes your web domain name. You will have full control over the site.
We are happy to assist with any questions you have, even if you are not using one of these options.
Following advice and restrictions from both the government and NACC, all meetings of the Association of Caravan Clubs of Victoria and Their Members are cancelled until further notice.
These restrictions also apply to going out in caravans so all rallies for clubs are cancelled until further notice.
In Memory ...
We wish to pass on our Condolences to the Family and Friends of John Raymond (founding member and president of CFA Caravan Club) who passed away on 28th October 2019.
Our First Jet Flight
Today is a historic day for RFDS Central Operations. Today we performed the first aeromedical retrieval of a patient in the new RFDS Medi-Jet 24, our purpose-built aeromedical jet.
The patient, a local resident, was airlifted from Alice Springs Hospital to Royal Melbourne Hospital after she fell critically-ill and required urgent care by neurological specialists at one of our country’s largest hospitals.
The direct flight in the RFDS Medi-Jet 24 from Alice Springs to Melbourne took just under two-and-a-half hours today. In one of our turbo-prop PC12 aircraft, this 1,870-kilometre mission would have taken over five hours, including a stop to re-fuel at Broken Hill along the way.
The intensive care in the air by our crews would have been the same, however a faster flight meant that this patient reached specialist care sooner and with a reduced window of risk of an unexpected medical complication during a longer journey.
Importantly, for all Centralians, the availability of the RFDS Medi-Jet 24 enabled our full complement of Alice Springs-based aircraft and aeromedical crews to remain in Central Australia to respond and care for residents and visitors to the region in their time of need.
For this, and on behalf of these patients, we say "thank you". Our vision for the world’s first purpose-built aeromedical jet was funded by the community – people like you – along with fellow supporters, donors, bequestors, volunteers and corporate and community partners.
The arrival of the RFDS Medi-Jet 24 will take us to the next level in delivering on our promise of providing the finest care to the furthest corner.
If you have not done so already, I encourage you to watch the short video (using the link below) showcasing the RFDS Medi-Jet 24, including some amazing outback footage of the jet performing its first dirt-strip landing on Australian soil during our final pilot and crew training program.
Thank you again for your support, take care and all the best,
