Camp Quality Convoy

I know that this was AGES ago, and we are no longer in the Wollongong area but I was looking through our great photos from Camp Quality Convoy day and I remembered that I hadn’t shared it here on our New Life on the Road blog.

Considering we have SO much to share about our travels from the Illawarra area to Bundaberg QLD to back down the Sunshine Coast area, and considering we have power for the time being {will share more soon about where we are} I am going to try and finish up our wonderful travels in New South Wales so that I can start sharing our more recent travels.

Camp Quality Convoy 2014 was huge, way bigger in support then 2013, and I reckon that 2015 will be even a bigger year. And the support is really important because the Children in the area benefit from the fundraiser.

It was also the 10th year anniversary – the day came about when a member of i98FM decided to hold a “Day” where Trucks/Motobikes where able to bid/donate/give money to be part of either the lead truck/motorbike {the peoples truck} – they all drive from Illawarra’s northern tip to its southern suburbs, raising money to support children living with cancer in Australia.

“Last year’s event saw a record-breaking number of trucks and motorcycles pass through the Illawarra, with 782 trucks and 900 motorbikes taking part in the Convoy, and a total of $1,191,816 in funds raised – marking the biggest year in the I98FM Camp Quality Convoy’s nine-year history” From Camp Quality Website.

It was such a great day. The concert was the hi-light of the event…..we actually didn’t stay on the side of the street to see all of the Convoy going past, there was too many trucks! Luckily we ducked home for breakfast {late Breakfast} and then went to the concert – there was also fun rides for the kids, food vans, and a few market stalls.

All in all I highly recommend Camp Quality Convoy in the Illawarra Wollongong area!
