Shitbox Rally Spring 2024
Our Story …

Team Handy Wombat are pleased to be taking part in the Spring 2024 Shitbox Rally, we will be driving our $700 scrap yard car from Bendigo to Townsville across some great outback roads to put the car to the test.

We are participating in this years rally to honor friends and loved ones who have taken the dreaded C head on, some are still with us but sadly some are not which makes it all the more important to raise money to go into researching and fighting this dreaded disease.

Shitbox Rally is the largest community lead fundraiser for Cancer Council in Australia and is now in its 14th year. Part of the participation is that all us teams have to raise a minimum of $5,000. That is our aim but with your help we hope to be able to raise much more than that.

The fundraising is the hard part of the rally so any donation big or small is welcomed. Please follow our Facebook page


Where we will be posting updates on the car, fundraising and the rally.

Here's what I'm doing …

Shitbox Rally is the adventure of a lifetime challenging participants and their cars, worth no more than $1,500, 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.

Hope you have another awesome rally adventure and the car is a perfect Sh!tbox - with enough issues/repairs to be interesting, but still finishes in style.

The Impact, Outcomes & Charity

Shitbox 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 Shitbox Rally we can fund world-class research that reduces the impact of cancer for everyone.

$46 million over the past 15 years 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.
