More than 200 intrepid adventurers have already signed up for this year’s Great Endeavour Rally and are out in their communities raising funds and publicity for the iconic event.
This year, competitors will traverse 3,500 kilometres of territory, leaving Burleigh Heads on the Gold Coast on July 13 and finishing (hopefully!) at Bargara Beach, near Bundaberg on July 22.
They will visit some of the most beautiful country and coastline northern New South Wales and south-east Queensland has to offer.
Again, their position on the grid will be determined by the funds they raise.
The ultimate aim is reaching pole position as the highest fundraiser, so they can have first go at the rugged and often water-logged terrain.
Funds raised go towards helping Endeavour support people with a disability in Queensland and New South Wales. The goal is to smash last year’s fundraising record of $400,000.
Regular entrant and last year’s highest fundraiser, Lionel Moore from Pittsworth, near Toowoomba, said he was excited by the challenge of once again putting himself and his vehicle to the ultimate motoring test.
“The Great Endeavour is legendary as Australia’s toughest off-road rally event, and we have a lot of work ahead of us to get man and machine into shape for the ordeals ahead,” Lionel said.
“But along the way, there’s a great deal of fun and camaraderie and at the end of the day, we are raising money for a very important charity. “And, of course there’s the softer option of the Great Endeavour Cruise who would like to be part of this marvellous event and enjoy some of Australia’s most amazing scenery but who would prefer not to leave the beaten track.”
Anyone who wants a taste of the Great Endeavour, including those who have been before and want to experience the fun all over again, can join in the One-Day Fun Day and Reunion Party at Kilcoy on Saturday, 20 February.
