THIS WEEKEND: The Great Eastland Hub Rally 21-22 October 2023

It’s that time of year again! The Great Eastland Hub Rally is back, following it’s successful re-launch in 2022, after Covid.

The inaugural Hub Rally was created and hosted by Taree Historic Motor Club on the October long weekend in 1972.

Clubs attending were Taree, Tamworth & Coffs Harbour. The rally was at that stage a bi-annual event based in Taree up until 1978 when the Hub was formed.

The rally then became The Great Eastland Rally when it was hosted by Tamworth in 1980 and sponsored by Great Eastland Television which was based in Tamworth.

The Hub Rally hosting clubs include:
Taree Historic Motor Club Inc. (Taree)

Coffs Harbour Veteran & Vintage Car Club (Coffs Harbour)
Hastings Auto Restorers Society Inc. (Port Macquarie)

…all of which host the rally on a rotation system each year.
