The Lachlan Valley Caravan Club has once again had a very successful and enjoyable year, travelling around New South Wales and other states.
The group started the year with a tour to Hill End.
There were also trips to Kiacatoo and Lithgow.
In March, a group of vans made their way to Tumbarumba, where they were hosted by members who own a property there.
We were kept busy each day and on one occasion, toured into Victoria to undertake a tour of the SnowyHydro Scheme at Tumut 1.
During winter, no actual official trips were organised, however many of our members undertook trips to various parts of Australia, including a group of seven vans who left Orange in Mid June and travelled to Darwin and return over three months.
In early September a group of eight vans, undertook a three-week Roving Rally - Bourke to Grafton.
A great three weeks was had by all, exploring the various regions and their points of interest along the route, including the Fish Traps at Brewarrina.
In late October there was a Rally to Moss Vale which saw seven vans undertake a very interesting time, including a visit to the Bradman Museum and other points of interest around the area.
The last weekend in November saw a large group of vans and their occupants gather at Bedgerabong for the Club's annual Christmas festivities.
At this time the club also holds its AGM and elects a new committee for the coming year.
All in all, a very enjoyable year.
About the club
Based in the Lachlan Valley, around Forbes and Orange in the Central West of NSW, the Club was first formed in January, 2003.
Originally it was called the Forbes Country Caravan Club, but since 2007, it was changed to its present name.
The Club draws members from a wide area, mainly from the Central West, but we also have several members from further afield, even one in Victoria.
We have a website that has recently been updated and if anyone wishes to view the information contained therein, go online to lachlanvalleycaravanclub.org.au
This site is focused on providing prospective members, information about our club and how we operate.
Our Club welcomes any enquiries from anyone who may wish to join (details on the site).
At the beginning of each year, a Rally Calendar is drawn up, with a variety of activities set out for the year ahead.
