National Thunder Motorcycle Rally Tamworth

Welcome to the National Thunder Motorcycle Rally Tamworth


Sadly the 2021 National Thunder Motorcycle will not go ahead this year due to ongoing high numbers of COVID-19 cases in NSW and associated border restrictions. We will be revving up again in 2022, with the event to be held from Friday 30 September to Monday 3 October next year.

Ticket holders can request a full refund or their tickets will automatically transfer to next year's event.

Plase email the organiser via the form at the bottom of this page if you wish to request a refund or if you would like additional information.




The inaugural annual National Thunder Motorcycle Rally will be held across the October Long weekend in 2022. The rally will offer four days of action and camaraderie and will be built around the theme of bikes, music and food. The rally will include all motorcycle manufacturers’ brands, catering for individual riders, club members and organised groups.

This national event is expected to draw several thousand bikes to Tamworth and will feature live music with local and national bands, specialised equine activities, dozens of vendors and much, much more.

It is our goal to collaborate with a diverse range of manufacturers and organisations that share a passion for motorcycling to create a unique event that celebrates the motorcycle lifestyle.

Location and Venue

The National Thunder Motorcycle Rally will be held in Tamworth, NSW at the internationally respected Australian Equine and Livestock Event Centre (AELEC).

AELEC has already been proven as a very successful motorcycle rally venue after it played host to the hugely successful Harley-Davidson National Rally in 2015.

AELEC is located south of Tamworth 6.5km from the Tamworth CBD on Jack Smyth Drive.
