Registration is divided into two parts: Registration of participants; and Registration for tours and dinners which will come at a later date due to the current Covid-19 restrictions making it difficult to plan for these at the moment.
Each Vehicle will need to register a Driver and this fee includes a registration for the drive, t-shirt for the driver, lanyard, large car stickers for the doors and a bumper sticker.
All other participants in that vehicle will need to be individually registered. Registration for passengers includes a t-shirt and lanyard.
All accommodation bookings will need to be handled individually. As the daily tours will depart from Bargara and two of the evening activities will be held at Bargara, we recommend staying in Bargara. The options in Bargara range from camping grounds to waterfront apartments.
