2024 RACV 1&2 Cylinder Rally – Information

 

The Event will be held in Echuca/Moama.  The Club last rallied in Echuca in 2008 and in Moama in 2013.
Echuca/Moama represents a bygone era with horse-drawn carriages and wood turners.  The historic port precinct is recognised as one of Australia’s finest heritage icons and is home to the largest paddle steamer fleet in the world.

UPDATE:  ENTRIES CLOSE FRIDAY MARCH 1st.  YOU HAVE ONLY DAYS TO ENTER

Accommodation is filling fast.  To avoid disappointment, the rally directors strongly recommend that you book your accommodation now! (if you haven’t already done so)

Four-days filled with camaraderie, laughter and the shared love of veteran motoring.  The carefully curated and meticulously planned series of drives will take you through picturesque landscapes in and around this magnificent part of Victoria.  A paddle steamer cruise has been incorporated into the itinerary.

Exceptional Rally Dinners.  Indulge your senses in an unparalleled culinary experience at our rally dinners.  Whilst we acknowledge the higher than usual cost, due mainly to our inclusion of 3 dinner functions and an included river cruise on the Friday, we believe that you won’t be disappointed.  You’ll savour delectable courses prepared by top-notch chefs, showcasing the finest local and seasonal ingredients.  If you don’t have a 1 or 2 cylinder vehicle but would like to attend one of the rally dinners, you’d be most welcome to join us!
