Bur­nett is thriv­ing with tourists

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

FRE­QUENT vis­i­tors to the North Bur­nett, Pam and Joe Dra­heim, are the lead­ing foun­da­tion mem­bers of the Rum City Ram­blers that was formed 14 years ago.

The group is open to any­one with an in­ter­est in trav­el­ling but those who want to take part must be mem­bers of the Cam­per-van and Mo­torhome Club of Aus­tralia.

Mrs Dra­heim said she couldn’t be­lieve it’s been 14 years since the club was formed and it was all thanks to Matt Mur­ray.

“We are foun­da­tion mem­bers, when the club was formed we were there along­side Matt Mur­ray, he formed the club,” she said.

“Matt was a mem­ber of the Wide Bay Wan­der­ers and it was huge so they de­cided we needed some­thing out this way as he was orig­i­nally from Bund­aberg.

“We had half a dozen peo­ple who at­tended the meet­ing back in 2004 and con­se­quently it was formed and was named Rum City Ram­blers.”

One of the highlights for Mr Dra­heim over the past decade has been meet­ing new peo­ple.

“Com­pan­ion­ship and do­ing some­thing in our own district,” he said.

“We had so many friends here in Mun­dub­bera, but un­for­tu­nately a lot of peo­ple have passed away since.”

The pair would like to thank the gen­eros­ity of the Mun­dub­bera Bowls Club for host­ing the event.

If you’re in­ter­ested in join­ing the Rum City Ram­blers, please phone Mrs Hof­mann on 0403075083.
