CARAVAN & MOTORHOME
Country Roads Caravan Club was formed in 1980 under the name of Dunduklumpen Caravan Club.
The original name came from a Swedish folk character that brought happiness, friendship and laughter to the local village.
The caravan club obtained the rights to use the name, hence the Dunduklumpen Caravan Club was born. Over a period of twenty one years the club has had a range of membership from thirty to a peak of seventy members. In 2003 it was decided to “retire” Dunduklumpen and, after a survey of members it was decided to rename the club “Country Roads Caravan Club”
The club has thirty five current members ranging in age from 32 to 85. Families are very welcome and we also welcome your pets as long as they are friendly and cause no annoyance to other members. We have a joining fee of $15 per person and our current membership fee is $30 per year.
We hold about ten monthly rallies per year, usually at weekends where we go to country farms, country community centres and the occasional caravan park. When we go to farms members take portable generators and portable toilets.
The Sandgroper Caravan Club Inc was formed in late 1999 and caters for mostly retired or near to retirement folks who own either a pop top or a full size caravan. The Club will consider membership applications from folks who own other types of RV however currently membership is limited to a maximum of 40 RV’s. Neither does the Club cater for companion animals during Rallies.
The Club organises monthly Rallies, generally not more than 200km from Perth, although longer distances are some times organised where a long week end or a Special Event is planned (Kulin Bush Races, Boyup Brook Country Music Festival, Club Safari for example). Officially a Rally starts on a Friday afternoon and finishes on a Sunday Morning (for an ordinary weekend rally), however many of our Members like to arrive at the Venue on a Wednesday or a Thursday and leave on a Monday or a Tuesday.
Each Rally is hosted by a volunteer Member who takes the responsibility for organising some activities for the Rally. Participation in these activities is optional and could include things like visits to places of interest, picnics and other such easy and relaxing pastimes. Evening entertainment might include quiz nights, games nights and such.
