The 2017 Kennards Hire Rally Australia isn’t just about the rallying… There are plenty of free attractions available for you to get the most out of rally week. The Rally Show Ceremonial Start on Thursday gives you a chance to meet the drivers, get autographs and selfies, and win great prizes. You can also Meet The Crews during the evening break on Friday and Saturday to get some great insights from the drivers. Experience a live performance from one of Australia’s biggest music stars Lisa Hunt on Saturday night, and view the Podium Ceremony after the last stage on Sunday.
Located along the east coast of Australia, Coffs Harbour is easily accessible via the Pacific Highway in both directions, and is just under a four-hour drive from the Gold Coast and a six-hour drive from Sydney.
The Coffs Harbour Regional Airport offers direct flights to and from Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane from major Australian airlines. The NSW TrainLink offers two rail journeys each day from Brisbane and Sydney to the Coffs Harbour railway station. Coach services are also available.
Kennards Hire Rally Australia is offering a bus service for spectators during the 2017 Rally. If you’re looking for a more convenient way to travel to your spectator points, these buses are ideal. With various pick up and drop off points at different times throughout the day, the bus service can be used all day with a single ticket purchase.
Tickets need to be purchased via Ticketek prior to using the bus service – no bus tickets can be purchased from the driver on the day. Each ticket is $27.50 and is valid for one day only – you’ll need to purchase three tickets if you intend to use the bus service on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
Coffs Harbour is one of Australia’s premier tourist destinations and as such, is filled with excellent accommodation providers. Stay at the Opal Cove Resort where the Rally Headquarters is, or at Paradise Palms, a resort just across the road from Rally Headquarters.
