Proudly supported by our 2018 Rally Partners


The Dunga Derby 

The Dunga Derby is the major fundraising event to support the Rally for A Cause Charity in their efforts to support local Fraser Coast families with life-limiting medical conditions in need of support.  The 4 day car rally event is held the 1st week in August each year and sees up to 55 cars and 200 participants travel from Hervey Bay to the bush, having a load of fun along the way!   In the 1st 3 years the Dunga Derby has raised over $540,000 which goes back into the Fraser Coast community.

Registrations for the 2018 Dunga Derby are open now!

The 2018 Dunga Derby will be held on the 2nd to 5th August.

Registrations are open now


The 2018 Dunga Derby registration costs are:

  • $1,050 per team of 3 (or less)
  • $1,400 per team of 4
    (Note: The maximum number of people per vehicle is 4)

Registration includes the costs of your meals, accommodation, entertainment, activities, event insurances, permit fees & charges & the included Dunga merchandise (shirt etc).

Each of our teams has a responsibility to raise a minimum $2,000 per team of 3 or $2,500 per team of 4 - fundraising proceeds go directly to the Rally for a Cause Charity efforts. 

Dunga cars should be purchased for under $2,000 and need to be more than 10 years old. If you would like to bring something a bit more comfortable then a small “Luxury Car Tax” of $300 per vehicle may be paid in addition to your minimum fundraising.

Feeding, sleeping, drinking

Bring your swag, or tent, sleep under your dunga if you like. The Dunga Derby officials will take care of your meals, while you take care of your own drinks, refreshments and snacks.

Campsite facilities are basic (limited showers) - but it’s only 3 nights!!


Dunga teams should consist of 3 (or 4) persons who are happy to share the driving.

We encourage entries from friends, businesses & workplaces and for those wanting to add more fun, costumes and vehicle themes make things interesting.

The cars

We have friends who can help you find a cheap car – however your car must be roadworthy and must hold CTP and third party insurance. It is absolutely your responsibility to ensure that your Dunga is safe. You may find the perfect Dunga and invest some love into it to keep it and use it year after year.

Themed cars are welcome and encouraged, they really add to the event.

You will receive a sticker pack of stickers from our sponsors that we would like you to include on your car. In this pack will also be a set of door stickers and sponsor stickers which must be included in the prescribed locations.

Prizes will be awarded for crazy stunts, teamwork, and participation… we have a prize giving function following the Derby. The Dunga Derby is not a race or a timed event - it's about raising funds and supporting communities along the way.
