TARGA Great Barrier Reef is a TARGA event like no other as it passes through iconic tropical landscapes that are truly unique to Far North Queensland. Sugar cane and banana plantations will line the various stages and the weather will be anything but cold. For thousands of years, the Great Barrier Reef has used its magnetic charm as a lure to attract the most adventurous souls. However, at TARGA Great Barrier Reef, they are not there to measure themselves against the challenges of the sea, but the Foreboding Mountains that lay adjacent to them. Over three days, you will travel through Cairns and out to all of the surrounding regions and enjoy a massive TARGA Fest on the Saturday night, right on the Esplanade in Cairns.
