An enjoyable way to make a big impact on a national stage.

It’s about Fundraising, Family and Fun.

Fill the seats of your favourite vehicle and join other like-minded people for a great day out.

Cancer Cruise is a 100% kid friendly project.  We are family after all.

There are two ways you can join Cancer Cruise, either in a Hosted Cruise or a DYO Cruise

  • Hosted Cruise is open to anyone to join.
  • Do Your Own (DYO) Cruise is a great option if you want to organise your own private cruise with friends, family, colleagues or for a club to offer to members.
  • The DYO cruise will happen on the same day and you are able to invite people into your DYO Cruise once you have set up your registration.  No one outside of your invitation list will be able to join your DYO Cruise.

The Cruise will depart on Sunday the 6th of March 2022.

Please note that due to the uncertainty surrounding Covid-19 and the difficult situation that much of Australia is in at the moment Box Rallies has decided that we will no longer host the cruises. We have decided that the show will still go on so we propose that each participant set their own route.

We are more than happy to supply you with the routes that already been prepared so that you can follow these or you can set your own route for the day. This will also give you the flexibility of what time you start and finish and how far you want to drive.

Cancer Cruise is about getting much needed funds to Australia’s best cancer researchers and with an 80% minimum of all funds raised, we will have a direct impact.

  • Set your own target for fundraising – no minimum required
  • All funds go directly to Cancer Council
  • Maximum of 20% used to cover costs
  • Over 100 proven fundraising ideas available to Cruisers
  • Great prizes for the top fundraisers on each Cruise
  • Support for all participants from the Box Rallies team

The registration fee is $95 & is payable when you join the Cruise. This includes your teams place on the Cruise, a Cancer Cruise decal, your vehicle numbers and 2 Cancer Cruise Caps (including postage).

You can bring a maximum of 4 passengers in your vehicle at no additional cost.


Cancer Cruise is run by Box Rallies, who are behind Shitbox Rally and Mystery Box Rally.
Box Rallies is the largest community-based fundraiser nationally for our chosen beneficiary Cancer Council and over the past twelve years Box Rallies have raised over $27 million for cancer research.

The Cause


Box Rallies Fund Outstanding Cancer Research Projects Nationally

The National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) is the pinnacle for vital funding for groundbreaking cancer research projects, but their budget only goes so far.  The cancer researchers who miss out get another chance at funding via Cancer Council grants.  The impact of these projects has been felt right across Australia with many of the grants made possible by Box Rallies funding.

For the first time, Box Rallies funds the next highest ranked grants after the NHMRC.  This means that Box Rallies will fund some of the most exciting cancer research projects across the country – with the highest potential to significantly impact those affected by cancer.

Here are some examples of multi-state research funded by Box Rallies:

Garvan Institute of Medical Research NSW
 (Dr Robert Weatheritt) – $448,283: Breast – switching off the spread of triple-negative breast cancer
