As our Official National Mobility Partner, this year the NRMA sponsored two Outback Links trips that journeyed out to the small country town of Carinda, three hours north of Dubbo. As part of our partnership, the NRMA mechanics volunteered their time and skills to travel from Sydney to Carinda and lend a helping hand to those doing it tough out bush. These Outback Links trips also included some of our own dedicated volunteers and Frontier Services staff. Each trip saw the teams of mechanics and volunteers working on a range of properties, repairing their farm vehicles and equipment, delivering practical support, as well as building meaningful connections. While they worked on these eight farms, they stayed within the community at the Carinda Hotel, a local sweet spot, and hosted a Great Outback BBQ with those farmers involved in the trips.
