Media Release

 The stage is set for the 100th Anniversary of the First Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix to be held in Goulburn which will be celebrated from Friday 21 to Sunday 23 June 2024, marking exactly 100 years since the inaugural race. 

With a variety of events taking place throughout the weekend, the 100th Anniversary of the  First Australian Grand Prix will be primarily held at the Goulburn Recreation Area. 

One of the major drawcards of this event is a celebratory raffle hosted by the Goulburn  Motorcycle Grand Prix Association, supported by Indian Motorcycle. Entrants have a chance to win a Ruby Smoke MY23 Indian Scout Bobber Twenty, valued at $23,995. The raffle will be drawn at the Anniversary Dinner, held on Saturday night. Tickets are now on sale at the link below. 

The weekend will commence with a Street Cruise on Friday night from 6.00pm along Auburn  Street. This activity will be free and open to all makes and models of motorcycles, setting the stage for a thrilling weekend as entrants will be dressed in racing memorabilia and led by a Police Motorcycle Guide. 

On Saturday from 9.00am – 5.00pm and Sunday from 9.00am – 3.00pm, the Goulburn  Recreation Area will host the All-Motorcycle Expo. Public entry is $5.00 per person, U16 free, and will feature historical exhibits, the Komatsu FMX Experience Motocross display on  Saturday, memorabilia and a parade of bikes, along with a variety of food vendors. 

On Saturday night, from 6.00pm, Veolia Arena will open its doors for the 100th Anniversary  Dinner served by Antonio Morelli, a chef who has prepared a wonderful buffet menu. Tickets are $95.00 per person and promise the opportunity to meet and chat with racing greats,  participate in an auction, enjoy live entertainment, dancing and the drawing of the Indian  Motorcycle raffle all in anticipation for the final day. 

On Sunday, starting at Brisbane Grove Road and Windellama Road intersection, the Rally will follow the original route of the 1924 race – passing through Windellama, Bungonia and along Mountain Ash Road past the motorcycle monument, returning to Goulburn’s  Recreation Area. Spectator viewing points will also be located along the route with shuttle buses departing the Goulburn Recreation Area and making four stops along the route. 

Please note, that accommodation in Goulburn is limited, so we recommend you book early. There are many B&B guest houses in and around Goulburn.
