A love of free-camping and the great outdoors has inspired a group of RVers to form a new branch of the Australian Caravan Club (ACC) that will cater specifically for their passion.
The recently formed ACC Sydney Freedom Seekers, the ACC’s 49th branch to form, will be the first of its kind for the ACC in New South Wales, and the third of its kind in the ACC. The ACC Bushrangers and the ACC Drovers, both located in Victoria, choose only freedom and budget camps for their musters.
“Members of the new branch are particularly interested in taking advantage of free and low-cost camping facilities as we explore New South Wales and beyond,” said ACC NSW membership support representative Lorraine Theodoros, herself an inaugural member of the new branch.
A freedom of choice of camping options is important to the members of the new branch. “We want to fully explore our great outdoors, seeking free-camping options as much as possible and practicable,” she said.
“Members attending our musters and tagalongs will be advised what is available at the facilities we have chosen and, if wishing to join in the activity, they should ensure their RV is set-up to fully meet the requirements of such facilities.
“At times, RVs will need to be able to cope with a lack of shower and toilet facilities, and lack of fresh water at sites. They must be able to contain grey water when required.”
The ACC Sydney Freedom Seekers are planning their first muster as a tagalong in March to the Stone the Crows Festival in Wagga Wagga. A second muster exploring the Hunter Valley is planned for April.
