We are so excited to announce that we're taking part in Shitbox Rally 2021 Autumn!! We are driving from Alice Springs to Gold Coast via the Gulf of Carpentaria, about 3,900 kilometres in our crappy little Imprezza.
Shitbox Rally is the largest community lead fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia. We are aiming to raise $5,000!!
We just had an incredible weekend where we hosted a live music fundraiser with our friends and family! It was such an awesome night and we raised a good chunk of our goal so thank you to everyone who came out to support us!
These funds go to the Cancer Council and we are extremely proud to be doing our part to support such a worthy charity. The fundraising is the hard part, so any donation you can give is greatly appreciated.

Shitbox Rally is the adventure of a lifetime challenging participants and their cars, worth no more than $1,000, on a 7 day drive across Australia to raise money for cancer research.
The rally is not a race – it’s a fun, colourful, unpredictable adventure with participants travelling at their own pace in smaller groups. Vehicles often break down but “we never leave anyone behind” and each night is spent camping beneath the stars and celebrating the day’s achievements. It all adds up to an incredible opportunity to see Australia’s vast and beautiful countryside and make lifelong friends, many brought together after experiencing cancer themselves or seeing cancer impact family and friends.
Since it’s inception the rally has been the largest fundraiser for the Cancer Council nationally.
We finally got our car!!
Mase and I have found a wonderfully crappy little Subaru Imprezza. It’s got all the things we love - rust, an oil leak, some spider webs and some dodgy steering - so it’s absolutely perfect!
We can’t wait to find it a name and whack some paint on it to make it rally-ready!
More updates soon :)
