Weekend test run for the 2019 Great Endeavour Rally

THE Great Endeavour Rally will hold a special one-day rally on Saturday, February 23 at the Jondaryan Woolshed.

Great Endeavour Rally coordinator Nathan Woolhouse said the one-day rally would be perfect preparation for this year's rally.

"If you've got a few events under your belt, this is a great way to get back into it ahead of the 2019 Great Endeavour Rally Gulf Trek in July," he said.

"And for those who haven't been on a rally but want to experience what one is like before they go the whole hog, give it a go - you won't regret it."

Registration for the one-day rally is open from 8am at the Jondaryan Woolshed and costs $100 per vehicle.

The first car will leave at 10am, stop for lunch at the Endeavour Foundation's Kingaroy Kitchen and cross the finish line back in Jondaryan about 4pm for an evening of camping under the stars.

This year marks the 33rd year the Great Endeavour Rally which has covered more than 120,000km and raised more than $10m dollars for the Endeavour Foundation.

The money raised from the rally supports about 4000 people with a disability in Queensland, Victoria and New South Wales.

The 2019 Great Endeavour Rally will launch from Bundaberg on July 26 and will pass through the flood-affected north west Queensland and travel to places such as Julia Creek, Karumba and Undara before crossing the finish line in Townsville.
