Alpine Rally

The Alpine Motorcycle Rally is Australia's oldest running motorcycle rally. The frst rally was held in 1969 near Yarangobilly Caves along the Snowy Mountains Highway in the days the Highway was dirt. My first rally was in 1974 and it was held on the western banks of the Goodradigbee River. It was organised by Paul Giles.

Unfortunately I left for overseas in March 1980 so missed out on attending the rally until 2008 when it was held on the eastern banks of the Goodradigbee River. The following year it was held near Yarangobilly Caves. Each year it alternates between the two sites and is organised by Henning Jorgensen. The Yarangobilly site, being along bitumen, is an easier rally to get to.

If you have any photos of the rally over the years and do not mind sending an image this direction I will endeavour to add them to the followng pages.
