Let's Recap The Mundi Mundi Bash
We enjoyed meeting and chatting to so many of you about your adventures on the road and talking about your modded-up 4X4s.
Mundi Mundi Bash was an unforgettable experience for the Club 4X4 team. Those sunsets and desert nights with stars beaming down as the fire burned will forever be in our memories. Not only was it a great opportunity to come together as a team, but to really immerse ourselves in the lifestyle that our customers get to enjoy every day.
Getting out to the bash was a long road trip from our customer hub on the Sunshine Coast to Broken hill, with stops along the way at Lightning Ridge and Cobar.
The end of day 1 saw us landing in the iconic town of Lightning Ridge. We arrived at dusk after an adventurous drive through farmland and were greeted by sheep, emus and cows. We stayed overnight at Lightning Ridge A stay overnight at Lightning Ridge with a great pub feed at The Outback Hotel was just what we needed before hitting the road again bright and early the next day, enroute to Cobar.
Our second night was in Cobar, another mining town also known as the ‘Coper city,’ where the largest copper mine in Australia was established. We arrived at our HipCamp spot - Meralda Station and set up camp as the sun was setting. We certainly didn't realise how chilly it was going to be overnight and woke up to frost on the top and inside of our swags! Thankfully, we had the forethought to invest in some seriously good quality swags from 23Zero and –5C comfort rating sleeping bags to keep us cozy overnight.
Waking up to a frosty, wintry morning meant we were packed up and hitting the road early and today was the day that we arrived in Broken Hill. The road heading into Broken Hill is a long stretch of road that feels like it goes forever, with many caravans also making their way into the bash.
After our 18-hour road trip to get there, we celebrated with lunch at the infamous Broken Hill pub. The TV’s blared and dotting Matilda’s fans crowded the pub, we watched the game (Australia vs England) till we couldn’t keep our eyes open, and it was time to hit the hay after a long journey.
The next day was the start of our Mundi Mundi Bash festivities, and our excitement grew as we picked up the rest of our team, and set up our swags ready for the next 3 nights under the stars...
Unfortunately, the weather took a turn on our first night. A wild storm came through hard and fast but left as quickly as it came. There was a trail of destruction through the Mundi Mundi Bash site, with our marquee and signage taken for a ride in the wind. Luckily it only lasted a short while, and the next day the weather held up with only a few light showers.
The infamous Mundi Undi Run was a site for sore eyes first thing in the morning. Men, women, kids and even dogs braved the cold in their undies and crazy costumes while we watched on in hysterics. It was a genuinely great cause, with all funds raised going towards the Royal Flying Doctors Service.
As the Mundi Undi Run commotion settled, we enjoyed meeting and chatting to so many of you about your adventures on the road and talking about your modded-up 4X4s.
As the day ended, we took advantage of a break in the weather and ventured out to the Mundi Mundi Plains Lookout to catch the sunset, listening to the music blaring in the distance and watching wild horses quietly grazing by the side of the road.
Icehouse and Dragon, Chocolate Starfish, Thirsty Merc, and The Angels were some of the highlights for the Club 4X4 team. Being so close to the stage meant we could hear the music at all times of the day and into the night. We loved getting up the front and enjoyed the mosh pit – though it was certainly a much chiller mosh pit than what we were all used to (haha)...
The Club 4X4 team ended each day around the fire, dinner in hand (from one the many epic food vendors at the bash), chatting the night away under the stars.
The Nutbush at Mundi Mundi Bash was bigger than ever, breaking another world record. The Club 4X4 team were stoked to see and be a part of such a fun part of the Aussie culture. To watch so many people in one space, in unison, was awesome.
On our last night at the bash, we made sure to catch the last acts, dancing the night away and reminiscing about the great week we had just had. And then it was time to head home...
