Our Story …

We are raising money for a bloody fantastic cause, Cancer Council Australia. We are doing this for our family and friends, whether fighting, winning, or for those who lost their cancer battle.


We are taking part in The Shitbox Rally Summer 2023! In March, we are driving a yet to be found, Shitbox, (Under $1500 2wd car) from Rockhampton to Hobart, the long way, via some formidable roads and remote communities. What could possibly go wrong!?


We need your help to raise A LOT of money! IT'S TAX-DEDUCTIBLE!!!!! So PLEASE, give as generously as possible via our DONATE NOW button at the top of the page!


Shitbox Rally is the largest community lead fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia and is now in its 13th 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 2023 Summer rally target set at $2,000,000 plus.


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, no matter how big or small, is greatly appreciated and helps us reach our target.


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 $1,500, over a 7 day across Australia endeavour 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.

<p>Yep, it is true, we found the ONLY known existing 1995 Ferrari Falcon Wagon. This urban myth of a Ferrari / Ford crossover IS REAL! As expected, Ferrari denies the prototype exists or that it is the genuine article, but we know it's the real deal deep in our hearts.</p><p></p><p>It was found in a paddock, in country Victoria, Australia. Unused for a few years, once much loved, with adventurous tales to tell, but now needs some TLC. It's in our shed, starting a return to its former glory... and roadworthiness! </p>

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.

More than $30 million over the past 12 years 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.
