Couple Fly From New Zealand, Buy Motorhome In Queensland, To Attend Australian RV Rally

Have you ever driven clear across the country for the express purpose of attending an RV rally? That’s exactly what Noel and Pip Sutherland did. They flew from Christchurch, New Zealand to Bundaberg, Queensland, bought a motorhome, and then drove to Albany, Australia – a total distance of thousands of miles – to attend the Campervan and Motorhome Club of Australia’s 30th National Rally.

According to the Albany Advertiser, they are thought to be the attendee who traveled the furthest distance to make the rally of over 1,000 other RVers (caravanners).
