Groups from Brisbane and Darwin will meet in Tennant Creek.

 

Groups from Sydney and Canberra will meet in Wagga.

 

Groups from Perth, Adelaide, Sydney, Melbourne, and Canberra will meet in Port Augusta.

 

It has been proposed that each Cruise will have evening meals provided by local service clubs and will be included in entry fee. This will keep everyone together and further enhance the experience of traveling across the country with a group of like-minded people.

 

Accommodation will be up to the individual and a list of accommodation will be provided to entrants.

 

A backup crew with mobile workshop for each Cruise is a possibility, and co-operation from motoring clubs will be organized (NRMA, RACV, RACQ, RACSA etc).  
 

 All the Cruises should arrive in Alice Springs on Thursday night.

Friday is a rest day and allows time for sight seeing and cleaning cars for a Friday night Car Cruise through the streets of Alice Springs. (pending agreement from local authorities)

 

Saturday will begin with a short Street Parade followed by the main car show at the local Show Ground. (pending agreement from local authorities)

 

Sunday swap meet followed by a cruise to a place to be determined for lunch, car related activities and entertainment for entrants.

 

Sunday night will be a Presentation Dinner with appropriate entertainment and awards for the car show and each state cruise. It was suggested that the Alice Springs Convention Centre would be a suitable venue and negotiations are currently underway.

 

This is the first time this type of event has been staged in Australia however the formula is extremely successful in the United States where 2 large events are held each year (Americruise and the Power Tour) as well as the Good Guys events.

 

We expect excellent electronic and print media coverage because of the uniqueness of the event. The organizers are currently talking to television networks with the view to producing a 1 hour TV “special” following some of the entrants through the process of preparing their vehicle to the mass arrival in Alice Springs. The response to this has been enthusiastic.

 

We are currently in negotiations with some high profile local and international celebrities to travel on the cruises and co-host the awards night.

 

Our plan is to run the event for three years to Alice Springs with an initial target of 500 vehicles. We would expect the number of entries for the second and third years to increase as the profile of the event increases both nationally and internationally.
