The Australian Caravan Club Seven Valleys Muster is progressing successfully with enormous benefits for the region.

After 2 years in the planning, the Australian Caravan Club are holding their ‘Seven Valleys’ muster at Tony Luchetti showground in Lithgow. Over 120 caravans have joined the muster from all over Australia with only Western Australia and the Northern Territory not being represented.

Members of the Caravan Club have been highly visible around the district in their distinctive green and yellow club colours, injecting a substantial amount of money into the economy of the local government area during their stay.

Organising committee coordinator Neil Cochran said “The members who have come from all over Australia are so happy with their Lithgow experience thus far and have been made to feel very welcome. The team at Seven Valleys Tourism and Events and Lithgow City Council have performed admirably in ensuring the event has been able to go ahead”. Mr Cochran continued “The ACC members have been busy exploring all aspects of Lithgow’s Seven Valleys. As a club we see the value of marketing the region holistically. Many of our members will be planning follow-up trips to visit the places they were unable to get to in one week. All will go home to their friends and families and spread the word about the Seven Valleys.”

Lithgow City Council Mayor Maree Statham said “It has been a real pleasure to welcome members of the ACC to Lithgow. The benefits to the local economy, charity and local tourism make this an extremely important event. I would like to thank our dedicated staff for their efforts in making this event a success”.

The ACC members will be here until Sunday 23 October and will be able to enjoy the shop local day in Main Street Lithgow on Saturday 22 October, supported by local musicians from the Lithgow Live and Local program.
