Lots of cash to help our farmers in need, because you need police and ambulance once a year if you're unlucky, you need a farmer every day of your life!
The Jalopy Derby is a 6 night, 7 day car rally across rural outback Australia, primarily on unsealed roads, providing participants with an opportunity to experience this amazing country, build life long friendships, foster comradeship and an ethos of helping others and simply celebrating life itself.
However, we’re a rally with a real difference . . . We won’t be rushing from one overnight stop to another, trying to cover as many kilometres as possible and missing the unique environment we’re driving through. On the contrary, our derby goes out of its way to give you fascinating insights into the regions and the challenges they face.
From the ‘Buy a Bale campaign’, where Australians have generously donated to enable the distribution of fodder, food hampers and more, to the programs designed to help farmers rebuild and repair vital infrastructure, Rural Aid aims to provide a holistic support program to rural Australia.
Our mission is to raise as much money as possible for the drought affected rural communities across Australia, supported by Rural Aid.
