About the Great Escape

The Cystic Fibrosis Great Escape is a car rally with a difference! In the twelve years the rally has been running we have visited Mudgee, Rainbow Beach, Nelson Bay, Orange, Merimbula, Port Douglas, Undara Lave Tubes, Great Keppel Island, world heritage listed Fraser Island, the Red Centre and Ayres Rock, the Birdsville Races, the Whitsunday’s, the magnificent Great Ocean Road, Burke & Wills Dig Tree, Batemans Bay and Kangaroo Island.

The Great Escape has forged a unique identity as being a friendly, laid back motoring event that caters for all walks of life. You could be a car buff who loves nothing more than to drive the Australian outback, or perhaps you are keen to get away with family and friends and try something a little different. You may like the antics that go with a fun car rally and love dressing up and being really loud and colourful – all in the name of having FUN – while raising funds and awareness for Cystic Fibrosis (CF) of course!

Our new Track Boss, will be seeking and finding hidden treasures in some of the remotest parts of the Australian countryside, so you can be assured you won’t find anything quite like The Great Escape!

The Great Escape is a car rally that has always been a little different, a little unpredictable and a lot of fun, so check out the brochure to find out more (be patient – it’s a big file but it’s worth it!!!)…
