Welcome

Welcome to all Jaguar enthusiasts and Jaguar car club members from across Australia to the 50th Jaguar National Rally.  This rally celebrates the outstanding achievement of fifty golden years. To commemorate, we return to the site of the first ever Australian Jaguar National rally in the border towns of Albury and Wodonga which may explain the name, “Border Revival”

As well as being a celebration for Jaguar enthusiasts and communities, the rally also showcases the quintessential XJ.  Since its release in 1968 and subsequent arrival in Australia, the XJ in its varying derivatives is the only Jaguar model that has been with us for the entire 50 year span of our National Rally celebrations.

There are many accommodation options in the Albury Wodonga area however the two preferred venues are The Siesta Resort Albury and The Quest Wodonga. These are noted on the Accommodation page.

For those who have been a part of National rallies over the last half century, 2019 marks the return to a more traditional format.  Our festivities commence with a welcome cocktail party at the historic Albury club.  The highlight of the weekend will be our National Concours & Display Day commencing with a parade of d’Elegance and d’Etat entrants to the display at Gateway Lakes.  

Saturday night takes us back to the fun filled 70s with dinner and a show at the Cube in Wodonga. The well known group BABBA will have you dancing and singing as you enjoy a trip down memory lane.

Sunday provides an opportunity for the Jaguars to prowl at the sporting event at the Logic Centre in Barnawartha – see further details on the sporting page.  For those with a more leisurely Sunday in mind you will be entertained with some of the best scenery and wineries that Victoria has to offer when we visit nearby Rutherglen or take a picturesque drive to the Dartmouth Dam and enjoy a lovely lunch at the Mitta Mitta Pub.

The Presentation dinner is another golden event at the award-winning Wodonga Golf Club where we will celebrate the awards from the Concours and sporting event.  All good things must come to an end with many of us opting to depart the next day after enjoying breakfast at the Riverdeck on the picturesque Wodonga river. Those who are participating in the Post Rally tour will enjoy another week of excitement discovering the many attractions Yarrawonga and Echuca have to offer while making the most of good times and great company.  

 

Come and celebrate the Jaguar marque as our Border Revival brings together the best that the Jaguar enthusiast community has to offer

Be part of the celebration that is our 50th National Rally – it’s been a long time in the making.
