RUGBY union fans Ellen and Jim Logan will join several other Beaudesert locals on a trip of a lifetime to cheer on their beloved Wallabies in the World Cup.

The couple will leave tomorrow morning bound for Japan where they will join fellow Aussies on the Turtle Troop, named for group leader Tom "The Turtle" Lawton who played for the Wallabies between 1983 and 1992.

Ms Logan said she was excited about the trip, which would allow them to experience the quarter finals, semi finals and final game of the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

"For four years I've been looking forward to this," she said.

"Look for me on the televised finals and I'll be waving this banner."

The banner was made by Ms Logan's friend Lisa Collins and depicts a wallaby with a turtle shell on its back and Indigenous designs in gold and green.

Whatever the outcome for the Wallabies in Japan, Ms Logan will also be cheering on another team closer to home.

Her fellow members of the Cancer Council Queensland's Beaudesert Branch will be taking part in the Relay for Life at Jimboomba on Saturday as the Beauy Bunch.

"I won't be there in person but I will be there in spirit and I will be keeping an eye out for updates on how they are doing," Ms Logan said.

"I encourage people to support the Beauy Bunch and it's not too late to join the Relay for Life - call Julie Ferguson on 0424 562 454."
