    Why are convoys such fantastic, unbeatable experiences?

    • Duration – No other club events bring people together for two whole weeks. We are a travelling community where you are with the same people in many different locations, creating shared memories.
    • Length – Travelling an estimated 2,000 kilometres together and overcoming every obstacle thrown at you is character building!
    • Scenery – There is plenty of time to appreciate what this gorgeous corner of New Zealand has to offer as we travel at a maximum of 70kph.
    • Places of Interest – Not only do we stay in many interesting towns, but we make stops and side trips to some fascinating locations.
