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.


Mission Statement 


To conduct unique, competitive, international motor rallies as ultimate tourist attractions.


Principles 

  • To organise and conduct unique, world standard and seriously challenging international motor sport competition on bitumen roads throughout Australia.
  • To bring together an exclusive field of Sports Cars, Grand Touring Cars and other cars of distinction, representing the evolution of the sporting automobile from 1900 to the present.
  • 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.
  • To ensure that all involved in staging the event derive optimum satisfaction and enjoyment from their involvement.

Here Are The Top Five Reasons To Not Do A Targa Rally

5. You will become addicted
