Great Endeavour Rally only two months away

The Great Endeavour Rally is famous for taking entrants to some of Australia’s best hidden gems, and this year entrants will visit some of the best beaches of Northern New South Wales and then head north to the seaside paradise of Bargara.

Nearly 300 people will brave the journey from Burleigh to Bargara via Hat Head and Wingham from July 13 to 22 July.

All funds raised by the Rally are used by Endeavour Foundation to provide vital support and services to more than 3,400 people with a disability across Queensland and Sydney. 

A convoy of over 100 vehicles will take entrants to some of the most remote, inaccessible and unreliable roads Queensland and northern New South Wales has to offer.

The less adventurous can enjoy the scenery from more user-friendly roads on the gentler Great Endeavour Cruise, which will loop through Hat Head, Red Rock and Gallangowan before reaching the gorgeous beaches of Bargara.

Endeavour’s Special Events Manager Col Clifford said the Rally would bring a substantial economic injection to each town that hosts an overnight stay with entrants expected to spend upwards of $40,000 during each one-night stay in food, drinks, petrol, accommodation and entertainment.

“The economic boost to towns on the Rally route is so significant that local councils and chambers of commerce regularly approach us asking to be included in the next itinerary,” Col said.

“For example, Endeavour supports local charities and community organisations by involving them in catering, marshalling, and promotion, etc.

“We receive very positive responses from participating towns on the economic and publicity benefits the Rally provides, along with a big dose of excitement and fun for locals.

“The only thing we ask of locals in return is to keep an eye out and be patient when the Rally comes to their town as there may be some traffic congestion while entrants are shopping and dining.”
