National Thunder Motorcycle Rally Tamworth

Welcome to the National Thunder Motorcycle Rally Tamworth

Friday 2 to Monday 5 October 2020

The inaugural annual National Thunder Motorcycle Rally will be held across the October Long weekend in 2020. 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.



At this time preparations for National Thunder Motorcycle Rally continue as planned with the event going ahead in October. 

If, due to the continued impact of COVID-19, Federal Government extends its prohibition of mass gatherings into the latter part of the year the rally will be rescheduled and held 1 to 4 October 2021. In this situation we can advise that tickets sold will remain valid for the 2021 event. If ticket holders are unable to attend in 2021 a full refund will be issued.

As information is received from the relevant authorities updates will be provided to keep our riders informed.

A futher update will be provided on Tuesday 30 June.
