Our Story …

We are pleased to announce that we're taking part in the 2021 Autumn Shitbox Rally, as covid_19 forced a postponement of the 2020 Rally and robbed us of the experience of our first rally.

However in May'21, our team will be driving our shitbox (ie. 'low cost, poor quality' car) and definitely not a serious rally car across 4,000kms of outback roads from the Gold Coast via the Gulf of Carpentaria to Alice Springs. Wow!. It just leaves getting back from the Alice.


Shitbox Rally is the largest community lead fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia and is now in its 12th year. Part of the participation is that all teams have to raise a minimum of $5,000 but most teams raise well above this amount as you can see with the 2021 Autumn rally target set at $2,000,000 plus. These funds go to the Cancer Council for research grants ('the cause') as we are extremely proud to be doing our part to support such a worthy charity.

The fundraising is the hard part, rallying is the suppose to be the fun part?So any donation for the cause is greatly appreciated. Please make sure to follow our progress via this page and the blog post below.

Here's what I'm doing …

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.

So work'n our way outa Covid_19 will see team 'Justa-coupla-blokes' volunteer to go backwards? Meaning we are now to start at the 'Gold Coast' and rallying via the Gulf to 'Alice Springs'....... all in an attempt to comply with covid_19 number restrictions. Confused???

Same rally, same rough outback roads, same stop-overs, same, same ..... just in reverse and a week later. Yeah, the fun lies ahead?

The Impact, Outcomes & Charity

Shitbox Rally is a dedicated fundraising event for cancer research with funds going to Cancer Council.

Cancer Council is one of the largest non-government funders of cancer research in Australia. We conduct and fund research studies across all cancers and all stages of the cancer journey.

Thanks to the community funds raised such as Shitbox Rally we can fund world-class research that reduces the impact of cancer for everyone.

Almost $24 million has been raised by Box Rallies to date, supporting ground-breaking projects such as:

  • A research study to develop a vaccine that protects against lymphoma cancers.
  • A research trial to standardise international guidelines on melanoma removal.
  • A research grant to revolutionise the treatment of pancreatic cancer.

These projects wouldn’t be possible without your support.
