Our Story …

In 2023, Steve participated in his first-ever Mystery Box Rally. His team, Blues Brothers, raised an impressive $12,720.00 for Cancer Council, which surpassed their expectations. 


This year Steve is making a comeback! But this time has teamed up with his daughter, Laura.

Their team, Hogwarts Xpress, has a mission to bring a touch of magic and a whole lot of fun to the Rally, all while raising money for an organisation that is pivotal for cancer research, prevention and support. 


Mystery Box Rally is one of the largest community-led fundraising events for Cancer Council in Australia having raised over $7 million in the last 11 years. This rally will have us driving a car that is 25 years or older (in our case, our 1993 Ford Falcon) along outback roads. We will do approximately 2,500 km in 5 days, leaving from Airlie Beach QLD & returning to Airlie Beach 5 days later. Each day in between is a mystery, we have no idea where we will be headed until just before departure the next morning.


While we have been accepted into the Rally, we still need to raise a minimum of $4,000 to participate!


We appreciate your support!


Thank you,

Laura and Steve

Here's what I'm doing …

Teams will drive their own 25+ year old cars along a mystery route in this unique 5-day challenge, all in the name of cancer research. The route is a loop starting and finishing at the same location, but all the other details are kept under wraps, only given to the teams each morning.

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."

The Impact, Outcomes & Charity

Mystery Box 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 Mystery Box 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.
