THE 2020 TREK HAS BEEN CANCELLED
It is with great disappointment that I have decided this week (26 August) that the only responsible course of action open to me is to cancel the 2020 Outback Car Trek.
For several weeks I had been receiving negative feedback from various communities regarding our plans, and this week some of them asked us not to come. Whilst our visit would be good for their morale and economic circumstances, they were terrified one of our group might bring the Coronavirus to their community.
Given the constantly evolving COVID-19 situation and acting upon advice from stakeholders, health authorities and government departments, my final decision became quite straightforward.
How Many More Sleeps?
The Outback Car Trek is an annual event that donates the funds it raises each year to The Royal Flying Doctor Service. Since our inception in 1990 we have raised in excess of $30,000,000 for the Royal Flying Doctor Service. The Trek is well known as the premier Charity Car Rally in rural Australia today.
Information about the 2020 Outback Trek is is on the WHERE? page on this website.
Our Trek is an event for older 2WD cars, and all of the cars are specially prepared to cope with the fun of outback and remote dirt road driving.
