RACV 2021 National Veteran Vehicle Rally

October 10 to October 16, 2021

Updates/new information are highlighted in yellow.

January 22nd 2021

A request to update Expressions of Interest was recently distributed and has unearthed a mine field.

While we always expected the event to be huge, numbers of confirmed accommodation bookings and EOI updates have exceeded any previously envisaged attendance. And now we have COVID rules with which to contend.

We have suspended the EOI link to lock in numbers while we spend the next 4 weeks redesigning the event to provide a COVID safe national rally that exceeds the expectations of the entrants.

We anticipate we are still on schedule for entries to be released in April.

January 4th 2021

Event planning has recommenced and we are working hard to comply with the changing COVID rules as they evolve. We believe we will be able to deliver a COVID safe National Rally while still capturing the camaraderie that is the signature of veteran car events.

August 14th 2020

It is 4 months since we announced the postponement of the National Rally.  We all now live in a different world.  All the rally planned activities, venues and caterers are standing by eager to welcome us in 2021.  It is however, unlikely we will have much more to report for many months.  We will advise all Expression of Interest respondents of any developments as they are confirmed.

In the meantime, as you are home anyway, keep that brass polished, there is a light at the end of all this.  It could even be the laser show, Heartbeat of the Murray.  Stay safe.

April 15th 2020

Due to the evolving impact and uncertainty of the Covid-19 virus the 2020 national rally has been postponed until October 2021.

Nothing has changed. Same week in October; same runs; same venues; same people; same cars; same fun.

Rally Home Page

Welcome to the RACV 2021 NATIONAL VETERAN VEHICLE RALLY web pages.

Based in Swan Hill on the Murray River, the theme of Rural Edwardian Australiana will dominate the event.

Suitable for both large and small veterans, steam cars and 1&2’s will easily handle the terrain and the runs. We measured one hill as a 1.7 metre climb but you will have a 3km run up so even friction drive vehicles should cope.

RACV – Principal Sponsor

Formed in 1903, the RACV played a key role in the successful development of motoring in Victoria in the veteran era, the era of interest of veteran car enthusiasts around Australia. It is therefore entirely appropriate, and very welcome that the RACV is the primary sponsor of the RACV 2021 National Veteran Vehicle Rally at Swan Hill. We thank the RACV for their active interest in the Veteran Car Club of Australia (Victoria), and for the long-term relationship with them we have enjoyed.


The event will be conducted by the VCCA(Vic) and is run under the auspices of The Association of Veteran Car Clubs in Australia (TAVCCA).

Expressions of Interest

Due to the overwhelming response to the EOI’s and the COVID restrictions that may impact the event, EOI’s have closed.

Expressions of Interest now stand at 206

Confirmed accommodation bookings have exceeded 165




Six newsletters will be produced as the event approaches.
