The key stakeholders of Abell Point Marina, Whitsunday Regional Council and Tourism Whitsundays have been aspiring to host this unique land-based event. The concept of The Whitsundays Festival of Motoring was born with a prime focus on the local community to relish and participate in this exciting event.

Year one will focus on developing the foundations of the festival and include a Round 1 of the P3 Solutions CAMS Queensland Rally Championship.

The vision of the event is to have a positive transcendence of the promising rally championship from a State to a National rally.  This festival is geared up to attract interstate, intrastate and eventually internationally participants as the festival grows in the years to come.

The festival will showcase the Whitsundays unique competitive advantage, stunning marine landscapes, hinterland mining and agricultural communities and the diversity of the entire region. By developing a festival of motorsport around the competitive rally rounds, the festival will reach the wider sports and leisure community and non-competitive motorsport enthusiasts alike.

The Whitsundays Festival of Motoring is intended to showcase the Whitsunday region as one of Queensland’s premier destinations.
