The Go West Rally is open to all vessels that intend to voyage from the South West Pacific Islands to Australia and arrive in Queensland at the Port of Bundaberg, The Port of Brisbane or The Port of Southport.

The Go West Rally is a destination rally, meaning we do not sail to a schedule; there is no set departure date, and you choose where you depart from. Participants in the Go West Rally are free to sail to Australia from any country and arrive in Queensland at the Port of Bundaberg, The Port of Brisbane or The Port of Southport between the 1st of August & the 15th of November, 2024. 

The Down Under Go West Rally is all about choice! Do everything, do some of it, sail in company or sail alone. It is up to you! No matter your level of involvement, you can still get the benefits and savings associated with being part of the rally. 

Over the last few years we have had over 400 international vessels on our Go West ‘Bundy’ Rally many of whom have since written to us to say how happy they were that they joined the rally, how impressed they were with the rally organisation & communication, and how astonished they were by what they received for their money! 


  • Comprehensive guides covering every aspect of sailing to and arriving in Australia to ensure you meet all your obligations in regard to pre and post-arrival procedures and biosecurity regulations.

  • Discounts and Offers on everything from Antifoul to Zincs, including discounted marina fees and hardstand fees from the Down Under Rally network of trusted rally partner businesses.
