CMCA rally to increase visitors to Rochester, Elmore, Lockington

By James Arbuthnott

RESIDENTS from Rochester and surrounds: get ready for the largest RV club in the southern hemisphere to meet at Elmore on Sunday for the first Victorian Campervan and Motorhome expo in 25 years.

Thousands of members will meet at Elmore Events Centre and are expected to inject $2 million into the economy of the town and surrounds, just weeks after Elmore Field Days.

And on Saturday, October 26 the Campervan and Motorhome Club of Australia rally will open its doors to the public in collaboration with Rochester Market, with up to 40 stalls accessible for just a gold coin donation as entry.

There will be two courtesy buses around town, and events maps and brochures will be available at the entrance thanks to Rochester Community House.

Rochester businesses and residents are invited to park away from the main street to allow for tourist parking and to expect a large crowd throughout the week.

This year’s theme is “Down the farm”, so expect to see caravan and motorhome enthusiasts dressing and acting accordingly in Elmore and surrounds.
