TARGA HIGH COUNTRY

11 FEB 2022

In summer, the road to the summit transforms into one of the most exciting hill climbs in the country and the gateway to all stages of Targa High Country.

Three high-octane days of racing see drivers travelling through the High Country regions, taking in the vistas of the Eildon, King Valley, and Mansfield districts, and returning each evening to the top of Mt Buller, to finish in the scenic alpine village.

The focus of the TARGA action is always the finishing leg, which sees cars scream through a tight t-intersection turn past the Village Square as they bee-line towards the finish line.

When the line is crossed and times are logged it's time for champagne and celebrations!  Join the teams and fans in the Village Square for one of the events of the summer on the mountain.  To find out more, visit the Targa High Country website.

EVENT UPDATE FROM TARGA ORGANISERS - 4 OCTOBER 2021

To maximise the impact of Targa Tasmania’s 30th anniversary event, organisers have reverted to a traditional late April date to move beyond any likely COVID-19 restrictions. The event was due to move to an earlier timeslot in 2022 - from March 8 to 13 - but will now be held from Tuesday April 26 to Sunday May 1.

This later date facilitates the running of Targa High Country from February 11 to 13, the same slot used earlier this year for the Mt Buller-based event, and away from the scheduled November 2021 dates that were likely to still be heavily impacted by COVID-19 protocols.

TARGA Australia CEO Mark Perry said the new dates buy both events vital time for Australian states to move beyond severe pandemic restrictions.
“Our competitors and tour participants come from all over Australia, and people need certainty in planning their travel and confidence that the event will take place.

“This new schedule buys everyone an additional seven weeks and in our early survey of competitors this was welcomed, seen as a real plus.

TARGA High Country is an important event on our calendar and the February date will allow far more mainland competitors to take part than if we ran it in November this year as originally planned.
