Down Under Rally
Bring on the 2017 Down Under Rally!
In 2016, the Bundaberg Port Marina became the marina partner of the Down Under Cruisers Rally, working together to create a spectacular journey for sailors from across the globe. We took part in the ‘Go West’ destination rally experience, which had participants travelling from Vanuatu and other areas of the Pacific to Australia, and became the port of entry for these international visitors.
During the weeks of October and November, we greeted 40+ Australian and International sailing boats with welcoming arms. Following on from the arrival of all expected participants, the Down Under Rally commenced its ‘Welcome Week’. During this time, guests got to experience a variety of activities, which aimed to showcase some of the Aussie culture and of course, have lots of fun! Ranging from mud crab races, backyard cricket, and encounters with the Australian wildlife, to yoga sessions, cruising seminars and barbecues, the participants of this event made lifelong friends and memories, all thanks to the Down Under Rally.
Due to the extreme success in 2016, we are thrilled to be a part of such an exciting and one of kind adventure again this year, and encourage all to consider embarking on such a journey! We promise you won’t regret it! If you’re interested in learning more about the Rally, follow the link below, and like ‘Down Under Rally’ on Facebook for regular updates!
