Welcome to the Dubbo Motor Bike Rally!


Bike Street Dubbo (Church Street)
Between Macquarie & Darling Streets (access via Brisbane or Darling St)
Saturday 2nd May 2020 
(Annually on the 1st Saturday in May)
From 8am to 5pm
(you can park in ‘Bike Street’ any time, for as long as you like, during this period)

The Dubbo Motor Bike Rally is planned for the 1st weekend in May each year following the success of the Inaugural Rally in 2019.

Dubbo is a major regional city, located in Central Western NSW and is known for its many wonderful tourist attractions. 

The aim of the rally is to promote safe riding and foster all the great things that riding a bike provides – fun, freedom and camaraderie.

As a guide on how to plan your Dubbo Motor Bike Rally experience, it is anticipated that you would arrive on the Friday. Dubbo has many pubs, clubs and restaurants to experience and our website and Facebook Page will be promoting events coinciding with the rally, as well as many close attractions, generally within an easy 2 hour ride (see our maps here for suggestions).

Saturday is ‘Rally Day’. Riders will gather in ‘Bike Street’ (Church St – Darling to Macquarie St) in the Dubbo CBD for the spectacle of thousands of motorbikes in one place, along with bike related vendors, stalls and merchandise. We will not discourage riders from ‘Parading’ up & down the Main Streets.

We will be providing a more detailed list of entertainment options as the event gets closer. If you know anyone that may be interested to provide some entertainment or have a stall to display their goodies, please let them know to complete the Application Form.

Sunday will be the day to pack the panniers and head for your next destination, wherever that may be.

Continue to visit our Facebook page as well as here on our website.

For those lucky enough to have experienced some of the world’s most famous rallies in the US like Sturgis and Lone Star – our aim is to bring a similar event to Dubbo.

We aspire to be the largest Motor Bike Rally in Australia. 

From Harleys to Hondas – Buells to Beemers & Piaggios to Posties – all bikes and riders are welcome.

We hope to see you in Dubbo at our next Annual Rally… 🏍️

In 2019 we were ‘lucky’ to have seen the return to Dubbo of the ‘Merlin’, the 5000cc motorcycle, built out of 2 cylinders from a Rolls Royce Merlin V12 warplane engine, by former Dubbo resident and engineer, Lucky Keiser. We hope you got to see it and we hope to have it return in 2020.
Thanks to these 4 local sponsors for helping to make this happen in 2019.

Many thanks to our 2019 sponsors.
