MERV Trailers

Mobile Entertainment Recreational Vehicles (MERV’S) allow youth in remote areas to enjoy a variety of entertainment usually only enjoyed by their city cousins.  

Each MERV trailer is designed to cater for events such as Discos, Movie Nights and other audio visual entertainment.

To achieve this they are fitted with items such as TV’s, DVD’s, Playstations, VCR’s, DJ Equipment, Camping Gear, Generator, Data Projector & Computer. The inclusion of a generator means that we can (and have) set up for an event just about anywhere, from school ovals to sports fields to paddocks.

The purchase of MERV trailers is made possible through funds supplied by the Gambling Community Benefit Fund.

There are four funding rounds each year, giving us the opportunity to apply for a GCBF grant.  

Each MERV, including equipment, costs around $30,000.00 to build.

To date, there are 36 MERV trailers located throughout Queensland.
