Our Story …

We are really happy to announce that we're still taking part in the Mystery Box Rally. We initially planned to partake in this adventure in 2020 but covid restrictions delayed this in 2020 and in 2021.

This year we rally.


The aim of this rally is to raise funds for research for the Cancer Council in Australia.

We all have people who are close to us who have battled cancer, some winning the battle and some not so lucky. We dedicate this rally to those people and hope our efforts can make a tiny difference.


We are driving a '94 Falcon wagon, thanks to Les and the boys, along outback roads, covering approximately 3000kms in 5 days. We have no idea where we are going. It is a mystery. All we know is that we will start and finish in Port Lincoln, South Australia, 1800 kms from home.


Our We Give page is open and every dollar raised goes directly to the Cancer Council. If you can donate, if you haven't already, or if you want to donate again, to help us on our journey and to help cancer research, we would greatly appreciate it. Sponsorships are welcome and your company logo will be added to our rally wagon. Cancer has not taken a break or a rest during the covid pandemic.

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.

In the past 12 years, over 29 million dollars 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.
