WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT US

Carefree Caravaneers is a caravan club located in South Australia. Its members are predominantly from Adelaide and surrounding area. 

Carefree Caravaneers was established in 1978 enabling members to better utilize their caravan or motorhome. 

While new members are warmly welcomed to our popular group, the membership is capped at 30 vans by our Constitution. This cap is required as there is a practical limit on the capacity of Caravan Parks to accommodate our club rallies. Our membership is currently open; once membership is full a waiting list is maintained for prospective members. 

We live up to our name and have a carefree approach to our 10 rallies per year. We provide activities and agendas which encompass the interests of all members. Our philosophy is “do as much or as little as you like”. 

Our rallies are interesting and varied with the ever-popular happy hours, BBQs, breakfasts, eating out and visiting sites of interest in and around the location of the rally. We have occasional lively team games, commensurate with our age and ability.
Casual or more formal friendships are formed in a relaxed format as we swap stories. 

We are associated with the National and State Association of Caravan Clubs.
