Join me in the dead centre of New South Wales

Tottenham

The Far Cairn Rally is held Sat 17th and Sun 18th September 2011

FAR CAIRN RALLY
supporting MARI

The BMW Touring Club of NSW proudly hosts the 4th Far Cairn Rally in aid of fund raising for MARI. A back to basics rally held at Tottenham Race Course and Showground in the centre of NSW. Tottenham is approx 120kms north of Condobolin and 120kms west of Dubbo. The Centre Cairn monument is located 33kms out of town near Five Ways and marks the centre of NSW. Erected in 1988 as part of our Bicentennial celebrations, it stands 2m tall and is made of slag taken out of one of the local copper mines.

The rally has the Lions Club cooking the BBQ on Saturday evening and there are limited meals available at the pub and café. There are loos, showers, undercover seating and sleeping plus plenty of room for camping. No fires on race course grounds, but OK outside. Limited accommodation is also available at the Tottenham Hotel. No PULP and limited fuel in town on Sunday.

The entry fee of $25 includes the Rally badge and sausage sizzle for Sunday breakfast, and Rally awards. All proceeds to MARI - Motorcycle Accident Rehabilitation Initiative.

The locals are looking forward to the Far Cairn as much as we are. Please remember we will be the guests of the Tottenham community - at all times please respect the township, its speed limits, showground property and the community amenities.

The Far Cairn Rally is open to all motorcyclists who enjoy a relaxed ride into country NSW. Tottenham is accessible by sealed roads, as well as dirt roads for off road riders, from several directions.


Come on guys lets support a great cause that hopefully none of us will need but is there if we do!!!!

AJ, that's a doable day ride for a FarRider or perhaps a great overnighter. Less than 1,000 km return. It's a worthwhile cause so will post at NSWR also. Will consider.

It used to be an official RTE!!!! This was one of Davo's (FarRiders founder) favorite rallies due to its support of MARI!!

I have done it as a day ride but am meeting people from Qld, Vic etc for an overnighter would be good to get the numbers up!!!!

I'm torn between this ride, the Wall to Wall ride to Canberra and the Wombat Rally - all on this same weekend.

Were you thinking of doing it Stew?

My luck has run out. A family reunion has been moved from 25/9 to 18/9 and rules out all 3 overnighters. Sorry Stew/AJ, was looking forward to it.
