31 August – 2 September 2018 -
Targa Great Barrier Reef will be the first ever Targa event held in Queensland and the event name joins two iconic brands under the one banner. The new event will be based in one of Australia’s iconic tourism locations, Cairns and will reach out to all of the surrounding regions including Port Douglas and the Atherton Tablelands.
The inaugural event will be held on August 31 and September 1 and 2, 2018 on a course of over 200 competitive kilometres, including the exciting range roads out of Cairns and Port Douglas, which if you have ever been to the region, you will agree are some of the most exciting roads in the country.
Targa Great Barrier Reef will be a Targa event like no other as it passes through landscapes that are truly unique to Tropical North Queensland. Sugar cane and banana plantations will line the various stages and the weather will be anything but cold, being held at an ideal time of the year.
