No, it is not a grey-nomad army; it is the Campervan and Motorhome Club of Australia’s travelling rally.
Euroa will soon host about 250 motorhomes, which will roll into its showgrounds for a week-long rally at the end of this month.
Rally manager and Euroa resident Mick Donnelly said the choice to select the Euroa district as one of this year’s destinations was an easy one.
‘‘Euroa has great parks, walking tracks, pubs and cafés, and the showgrounds was ideal for a gathering of 250 people,’’ he said.
The Solos Network has two rallies a year.
Mr Donnelly said the businesses in Euroa and surrounds should expect an influx of people during this time.
‘‘We will be running a daily shuttle bus to the main street several times each day for people to come down for coffee, have lunch and shop. Local businesses will really benefit,’’ Mr Donnelly said.
Network members will also spend some time in Violet Town at Shadforth Reserve, which will be the pre-staging area for travellers to stop in the week prior to arriving at Euroa. They will also tour Nagambie, including a trip on the Goulburn Explorer and a visit to Mitchelton Wines.
The Euroa rally will run from Monday, February 26, to Sunday, March 4.
