Our Story …

Two gals who don't know a tonne about cars or off-roading, but wanting to make a difference by raising money to fight cancer, something that seems to touch nearly every family.

Mystery Box Rally is one of the largest community lead fundraising events for the Cancer Council in Australia, having raised over $4.5 million in the last 8 years. We need to raise a minimum of $3,500 to cross the start line, but we're aiming high, hoping to raise $10,000, with the funds going to Cancer Council.

Please help us make a difference, and make sure to follow our progress via this page, and the blog post below.


Thanks everyone! Kathleen & Jo

Here's what I'm doing …

Teams will drive their own 25+ year old cars along a mystery route in this unique 5 day challenge, all in the name of cancer research. The route is a loop starting and finishing at the same location, but all the other details are kept under wraps, only given to the teams each morning.

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 have a car...introducing Pumpkin. She's a gorgeous 1995 Holden Commodore executive VS (fancy right?), and we're particularly excited about the Alpine CD player.

Pumpkin is heading into the workshop for a makeover - watch this space for her journey.

The Impact, Outcomes & Charity

Mystery Box 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 Mystery Box Rally we can fund world-class research that reduces the impact of cancer for everyone.

Over $20 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.
