Ruptured budgie Rally @ Mingoola NSW

TBugiehe third weekend in May (the one after Mothers Day) is the set aside every year for the Ruptured Budgie Rally.


Quicklink/coordinates to site entrance: 28°59’32.4″S 151°30’43.2″E

If you haven’t already done so, you had best mark the calendar and keep it free for a weekend of great riding and some fun and frivolity at the Budgie. For those of you that need to get a leave pass we suggest you do something exceptional for Mother’s Day. It should earn you enough brownie points from that someone special. Hence the reason we always hold the rally the weekend after Mother’s Day every year.

Some of the proceeds from the rally are set aside for improving the experience each year but more importantly a good portion goes towards helping the local community and other worthy charities. If you have any suggestions for future rallies just drop us a line at
