Keeping the Wheels of History Rolling

Operation Southern Charm Convoy

10-24 February 2024

With only a few weeks to go, excited anticipation is building for the biannual NZMVC Convoy in the South Island. The round trip from St Arnaud to Invercargill and back via some of the most scenic backroads in NZ will be spectacular. The travelling community of 60+ military vehicle enthusiasts will create lifelong memories. 21 participants are coming from USA just to experience what the MV hobby here has to offer.

The team has reconnoitred the route and investigated points of interest. Several optional sidetrips are planned to enhance the experience even more. What better way to see the South Island than in your own MV, in convoy with your friends?

It is not too late to join the team for the full route, sections of it, or just meeting up along the way.
