Shitbox Rally will be back and Taryn (Rockinghorse Studios) has recruited Shelley de (Zest Byron Bay) as her co driver for The Shitbox Rally 2020 Autumn!! COVID 19 has pushed this date to may 22 2021 where we will be joining the teams and driving our shitbox from Alice Springs to Gold Coast via the Gulf of Carpentaria , Can't wait 2021!!!
What is Shitbox Rally? It is the largest community lead fundraiser for the Cancer Council in Australia and is now in its 11th year.
Part of the participation is that all teams have to raise a minimum of $5,000 but most teams raise well above this amount as you can see with the 2020 Autumn rally target set at $2,000,000 plus.
These funds go to the Cancer Council and we are extremely proud to be doing our part to support such a worthy charity.
So please give us a hand as 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.
Shitbox Rally is the adventure of a lifetime challenging participants and their cars, worth no more than $1,000, on a 7 day drive across Australia to raise money for cancer research.
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.
this is us, Team Nunya Bunyip and were so excited about this adventure.( And the no school lunch boxes for 2 week). So thank you so much for supporting us, spreading the word helping contribute to a fantatsic $2million goal for cancer council research.
Personally this rally means a lot to both of us, sadly everyone knows someone who has been affected by cancer whether its personally or friends and loved ones. So we want to do what we can to support Cancer Council Research and oh yeah have an adventure.
Latest news is yes we have a shitbox. Courtesy of a previous rally team and we love it. All we need now is to raise the money, farewell our families and hit the road.
Thanks for supporting us and this amazing cause.
Back with another update soon

Thank you, we are so looking forward to this amazing adventure.
