National Retreat Caravan Rally 2018
10th - 17th September 2018
Held annually the national Retreat caravans family owners group rally will see over a hundred Retreat caravan owners converge at the Maryborough showgrounds for a week long stay packed full of activities. With a family focus the national Retreat rally aims to raise funds for the Queensland cancer council while having a yearly catch up full of fun activities.
The event takes place at the Maryborough showgrounds which is well positioned to host the event with surrounding areas Maryborough, Hervey Bay, Childers, Woodgate and Bundaberg all close by with a large variety of attractions like wine tours, the Bundaberg Rum tour, whale watching and so much more. This event will highlight our local area and how beautiful it is encouraging travelers to come and see what it has to offer and spend some time in our region.
Throughout the event there will be raffles and a auction held on the Saturday Night to raise money for Qld Cancer Council. There will be a sausage sizzle on the Monday afternoon at happy hour and a breakfast on the Wednesday morning cooked by the Lions club, a Spit roast dinner on the Saturday night with a band and dancing. Takalvans is having a brunch on Friday the 14th at our dealership located at 94 Takalvan st. inviting all Retreat owners to make the drive to Bundaberg and explore all our region has to offer. Takalvans is currently organising to send 73 Retreaters on the Bundaberg rum tour while in town for brunch
A Safe Travel talk from Tow-Ed on the Tuesday morning followed by Tow Ed on site all day having a towing course. Guest speaker Ron Chapman from Caravanning Queensland will give a presentation regarding caravan safety checks and answer any questions owners may have. Tilly and other factory staff from Retreat caravans will be travelling up from Melbourne to attend the event and assist the organisers anyway they can.
With the event now just over a month away it's not to late for individuals or local businesses who wants to donate items for the auction on Saturday night, many local businesses have already put their hand up and donated tickets or prizes for the auction with all proceeds going to the Queensland cancer council.
Takalvans looks forwards to meeting all the Retreat owners at the Friday Morning brunch and Saturday when we attend the rally at Maryborough.
