Route

  • Rugged and dusty forest tracks in the bush combine with shire roads, in public use throughout the year, to provide a tough and tricky gravel blast. 
  • Based in Coffs Harbour, almost halfway between Sydney and Brisbane on the New South Wales coast. 
  • A new-look Friday features three previously unused stages on wild forest roads north of the town, driven in the morning and repeated in the afternoon. 
  • Highlight of Saturday’s longest leg is the monster 49km Nambucca. In the afternoon it is split into two stages, Welshs Creek and Argents Hill. 
  • Friday and Saturday close with two runs through the asphalt Destination New South Wales test on the Coffs jetty, with dramatic sea views offering a picture postcard backdrop. 
  • Three stages to the north provide Sunday’s finale, including Bucca and the fan favourite Wedding Bells Power Stage.

Challenge

  • A mix of hard base roads, some tight and twisty and others fast and flowing.
  • Shire roads are lined by trees close to the edge in many places.
  • Many stages travel through dense rainforest and the low angle of the sun in mornings and evenings can create a ‘strobe’ effect as it flashes through the branches.
