About Targa Australia

Targa Australia run the worlds largest, longest and hardest tarmac rally event, Targa Tasmania.

We also run 3 other events. Located in the Victorian High Country is Targa High Country. In Tasmania's North West region is Targa North West and our newly added event, Targa Great Barrier Reef, located in Far North Queensland and based out of Cairns.

The concept of the Targa is drawn directly from the best features of the Targa Florio, Mille Miglia, the Coupe des Alpes and the Tour de Corse. However, Targa Tasmania is not a slow motion re-run; it is a genuine "red-blooded" motorsport competition.

  • To use the competition as a focal point for a festival of functions, entertainment and associated activity to create an overall event attractive to all audiences.
  • To ensure that Targa Tasmania continues to be a high prestige occasion recognised throughout the world of automobile competition as an essential annual activity for owners and serious collectors of sporting automobiles.
  • To increase international awareness of Australia and in particular, to enhance Australia’s status as a quality tourist destination.
  • To ensure the continuing enthusiasm and support for the events from the local communities.
  • To generate sufficient revenue to meet the expenditure needed to stage an event in accordance with these principles, and sufficient accumulated surplus to secure its long-term financial viability.
