Outback Meeting - Offcentre Rally - Innamincka - August 14-1

Aussie Outback Meeting anyone

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Outback Adventure Anyone - Off centre Rally 14 -15 August

The Bi Annual Off centre rally is on again this year. Innamincka in the far NE of SA is the venue for this the 10th off centre Rally.

The Off centre rally is a meeting of mainly off road tourers (there are always some crazy roadies there) in a remote location, the rules for the location are: it must have petrol and and have 200km of dirt road from any direction. Usually there are 60 - 90 bikes at the meeting. All riders and all types of bikes are welcome

The rally moves around every time and generally follows an East of centre event followed by a west of centre event at the next one.

Innamincka is a great place with huge waterholes surrounded by desert country so the concentration of bird life is amazing. History is all around you there with the restored AIM hospital and reminders of the Burke & Wills tragedy, you can even camp at the famous dig tree.

If you want some more infro deop me a mail or give me a call on 0425 309 975

Here are some stories of past Off Centre’s to wet your appetite.

Sounds fantastic
I reckon I would enjoy this
I know someone who is going here in SA but I didn't know Innaminka - friend just said it was at Mungerannie Hotel on the Birdsville track

Wondering if I can gather a few more riders for this

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
