The Association of Caravan Clubs of Victoria and their Members Inc’s mission is to promote caravan clubs to the community, to represent affiliated caravan clubs at public, industry and government forums, to assist all members to safely enjoy the caravanning and camping lifestyle.

ACCVic is a member of the National Association of Caravan Clubs, NACC, which is the National organisation representing the individual state associations of caravan clubs on matters affecting all caravanners.
ACCVic comprises two delegates from each club who meet four times a year. At the AGM, held in May of each year, the delegates elect a President, Vice President, Secretary, Assistant Secretary, Treasurer and committee members to form the executive of the Association.
A newsletter is published after each meeting to inform all members from the state of all developments, events and decisions discussed at meetings.
ACCVic co-ordinates, with different clubs on a rotational basis, the State Rally of Caravan Club members, held every three years.
Also on a rotational basis, ACCVic is responsible for organising a National Rally, the last held in Victoria in December 2010. Our next turn is 2028.
