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.
