About the Alpine

The Alpine Rally of East Gippsland is an iconic motorsport event.

The Alpine was first run in 1921, as the “Alpine 1000 mile Trial”. It is the oldest motorsport event in Australia and the fifth oldest in the world. 

The Historic Rally Association reinvigorated the event in 2001, and moved to its new home of East Gippsland in 2003. Since then, the event has run every two years. 

We’re very proud that the 2021 Alpine Rally of East Gippsland event will be the event’s 100th anniversary. We WILL be celebrating that milestone in the leadup and at the event in December 2021. 

The  Alpine Rally of East Gippsland is a special stage rally for two wheel drive classic rally cars. The event has regularly attracted the cream of Australia’s gravel rally competitors, from both all states and territories and from overseas.

The next Alpine Rally of East Gippsland will be in early December 2021.  The event will be based in Lakes Entrance and be held over 3 1/2 days and will cover over 1,000 km, visiting Orbost, Omeo and Bruthen, before finishing on the Lakes Entrance Foreshore.
