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 one of the longest running events in the world. 

The Historic Rally Association reinvigorated the Alpine in 2001, and moved to its new home,  East Gippsland, in 2003. Since then the event has run every two years – except for 2021 when it was postponed due to COVID-19.  

While we’d have preferred to celebrate  the Alpine’s 100th Anniversary last year, we’ll celebrate that milestone this year at the 2022 Lock & Load Transport Alpine Rally of East Gippsland.

The Alpine 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 . We also attract international competitors from New Zealand, the UK, the USA and Ireland. 

The Alpine Rally of East Gippsland will be from 1-4 December 2022. 

The event will be based in Lakes Entrance and be held over 3 1/2 days and will cover over 1,000 km, visiting Nowa Nowa, Orbost, Ensay, Swifts Creek, Omeo and Bruthen, before finishing on the Lakes Entrance Foreshore on Sunday afternoon.
