Our Story …

Hi Family and Friends. We are really happy to announce that we're taking part in Mystery Box Rally in 2020!!


The Mystery Box Rally is the mad baby brother of the Shitbox Rally, it is smaller and shorter but no less ridiculous. We need to source our own 25+ year old car to hopefully survive the 5 days of the mystery route, all in the name of cancer research. The route is a loop starting and finishing at the same location, but all the other details will be kept under wraps, only given out each morning. This year in August we will be beginning our adventure from Rockhampton QLD.


Like many families, we also have loved ones who have endured, succumbed and survived by cancer. We are participating in memory of those we have lost, in support and admiration of those who have fought and survived and to do our part to raise awareness and funds for the Cancer Council.


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.


Part of the requirements for our participation is to raise a minimum of $3,500 but we hope to raise well above this amount. These funds go to the Cancer Council and we are extremely proud to be doing our part to support such a worthy charity. They do some awesome work supporting people with cancer, and funding important research.


Fundraising is the hard part, so any donation you can give is greatly appreciated. Please make sure to follow our progress via this page and the blog post below.


In loving memory of Tom Alexander – Melanoma, James McGee – Hodgkin Lymphoma, Betty Douglas – Melanoma, Fay Douglas – Lung Cancer, Owen Wilson – Prostate and Lung Cancer

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."

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.
