Bristols to Noosa National Rally and Show

Bristols to Noosa National Rally and Show

The Bristol Car Club of Australia is holding its biennial rally in Noosa, with seven couples from the UK shipping their rare cars to tour Australia and join the week-long rally and display.

Joining the rally from the UK are two 1953 403 models and four highly sought after 1955 405 convertibles, along with a more modern 603 from 1976.

The cars along with another 32 from Australia will be on display in the Noosa Woods, at the river mouth end of Hastings Street, on Monday 29 April from 10am.

Touring drives in the Noosa hinterland will occupy three of the following days.

A highlight, especially for the UK visitors, will be a day trip by four wheel drive buses to Fraser Island, the world’s largest sand island. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex visited the island earlier this year to experience its unique environment and stunning scenery.

Bristol cars were made by the Bristol Aeroplane Company after World War II, keeping their craftsmen in employment. They have hand-beaten, beautifully curved and streamlined aluminium bodies. Being hand-made, only small numbers of each model were made, meaning they are rare and sought after.
