The Tour

TARGA tours are designed to provide car owners a unique opportunity to drive their pride and joy on closed roads in some of the world’s ultimate driving locations.

In the TARGA tour, you will experience a true tarmac rally in a non-competitive format, while enjoying the same challenging drive as well known competitors including Jim Richards, Peter Brock, Sir Jack Brabham, Denny Hulme and the great Sir Stirling Moss, all legends of international motor sport.

Experience the primal thrill of tackling turn after turn, the exhilaration of driving your car as it was designed, on roads that are otherwise never closed.

Grouped into packets, the TARGA tour is led by our experienced tour leaders, who are there to assist your driving pleasure and match you up with like-minded tour participants.

With a cross section of marvellously restored classic vehicles, as well as the latest in grand touring sports vehicles, the TARGA tour is for anyone.

The TARGA tour is a complete adventure. Enjoy driving your car through the tropical rainforest and coastal roads of Queensland, as well as fine food and wine, high quality restaurants and accommodation and the beautiful scenery.
