WHAT IS THE TARGA HIGH COUNTRY TOUR?

The Targa Tour is a unique opportunity to take part in the world renowned ‘Targa Australia’ Tarmac events as a motoring enthusiast.  You will enjoy the freedom of driving your pride and joy, your classic restoration, or your brand new GT ‘Special Stages’ of our events.  You will rub shoulders with legends, feel the rush of the corners, the exhilaration of mountainous roads and enjoy a bonding journey like no other -.

This is a team event, just as the main competition, each driver depends on their navigator to guide them though each stage and relies upon them to arrive at the next stage.  This is the Ultimate driving experience.


THE COURSE

The tour adheres to the sign posted speed limits, although there is still plenty of opportunity to enjoy you car in a very “spirited” manner- the way they were designed. The Targa tour follows the same course as competition vehicles, on closed roads using both sides of the road, ensuring you feel every twist and turn of the event and come across the hard earned finish line.

 The Targa High Country Tour is based out of Mount Buller in the magnificent High country region of Victoria. Over three days the tour will travel through 3 separate High Country regions, taking in the vista’s of the Eildon, King Valley, Mansfield and Euroa districts, before returning each evening to the top of Mount Buller, to finish in the panoramic Mount Buller village.
