These 3 days promise to be fun packed with lots of activities including; Round 2 of Queensland Rally Championships, show and shine of classic, vintage and modern cars and of course, festival activities for families.

The Rally*

The Queensland Rally Championships is the major event to look forward to at the festival. Starting at 07:30am, the rally will entail a 120km race split of multiple stages, private land and Bowen Town Centre at Hydeaway Bay, Bowen Foreshore and town streets. We anticipate 20 cars will be participating in this action packed rally.

*The 4th May date is the “proposed” date for the Rally which is to be confirmed.

Bowen Festival Extravaganza

Bowen is staging up to welcome the rally amid a gala festive ambience. The rally circuit at Bowen will run through a stretch of 1 KM, covering some of the main streets so that general public can enjoy and cheer from a range of spectator areas. Watch from various areas from the Grand View Hotel, town streets or along the foreshore. There will be lots of interesting turns and twists and multiple areas along the route to spectate. The competing cars will drive straight by and along the foreshore for the final stretch to reach the finish line where there will be public places for kids and families to enjoy the competition accompanied by great entertainment, activities and food stalls.

Show and Shine

From vintage to classic and everything in between, WFM will have it all on display across the weekend. The displays will definitely be a hit as owners from around the region display their restored and classic cars. Whilst viewing the impressive vehicles there will be arrange of activities including entertainment, food stalls and a licensed venue.
