Lives unaffected by cystic fibrosis

The Great Escape

The Great Escape has forged a unique identity within the rally sector, whilst raising funds and awareness for Cystic Fibrosis Australia.

This fun car charity event attracts drivers from all around Australia to participate and enjoy 10 challenging days while travelling through unique and iconic locations in Australia.

With the inaugural Great Escape taking off in 2002, year after year the rally has endeavoured to take our Great Escape family, affectionately referred to as our 'rallytives', on their best bucket list adventure, but still maintain the boutique and family approach - what better way is there to explore the best back yard in the world.

The Great Escape is more than just a fun car rally, it is a great way of meeting like-minded people, visiting places off the tourist trail, make life-ling friendships and raise money to fund research into cystic fibrosis.  With over 40 cars and 150 rallytives each year, the only thing missing is you! 

To name but a few of the different places we have travelled through will give you just a taste of what you can expect when you embark on this great Aussie adventure. Our stops have included: Dubbo, Noosa, Bryon Bay, Back O’ Bourke, Shepparton, Port Arthur, Hobart, Mudgee, Broken Hill, Coober Pedy, Flinders Range, Streaky Bay, Rainbow Beach, Nelsons Bay , Orange, Merimbula, Port Douglas, Undara Lava Tubes, Great Keppel Island, Fraser Island, the Red Centre and Ayers Rock, the Whitsunday’s, the Great Ocean Road, Burke & Wills Dig Tree, Batemans Bay, Kangaroo island and Birdsville.

There are still places to see, roads to travel, friends to meet, so get involved in the 2019 Great Escape and hit the roads with us in September.
