Rally History

The Great Endeavour Rally has been Raising Dust and Dollars® since 1988. It was predominantly a Queensland-based event for the first 24 years, but has begun expanding through other states. The 2016 Super Endeavour Rally crossed borders as it travelled through Queensland, Northern Territory, and South Australia. 

Thousands of people have taken part to enjoy the adventure of a lifetime, see remote areas of natural beauty, have access to regions others are prohibited to visit, and raise funds to support people with a disability. The Great Endeavour Rally has raised more than $9 million over the years.

The great adventure continues – be part of it and Raise Dust and Dollars to support people with a disability.
