STAY TUNED . . . . . . for the possibility of a short Post Rally Tour - "Southern Vales Tour"


NOTE:    As many will know the last three National Jaguar Rallies have been cancelled due to COVID concerns and restrictions. We are very hopeful that we can pull this one off in 2023. However we have taken a cautious approach in our planning with a less ambitious approach than we took in 2018. I am sure our Jaguar friends around Australia will accept that such an approach is prudent.


The Jaguar Drivers Club of South Australia aims to provide a very casual and affordable event where Jaguar club members from across Australia can come together and enjoy a very relaxed occasion catching up with old friends, making new friends and celebrating the Jaguar marque.


The 2023 Jaguar National Rally will be located in Hahndorf, in the Adelaide Hills, South Australia, Hahndorf is classified as Australia’s oldest surviving German settlement. People of all cultures and ages enjoy its charm and hospitality. There is so much to see and do in the beautiful Adelaide Hills.


We have deliberately scaled back the overall activities etc of this rally as a precaution. The risk of cancellation due to Covid  19  has not passed so we are being cautious. We know you will understand. The 5 day Rally, planned for Friday to Tuesday (Inclusive) will still be a great program of activities for all.


STAY TUNED . . . . . . for the planning of a short 4  day Post Rally Tour - "Southern Vales Tour"" 

We are also encouraging each state to organise their own "Tours" over a few days, either on the way to the rally or on the way home or maybe both for those who wish to travel together. 

We anticipate that a local coordinator in your state will assist in this aspect of organisation.  Please ask your local club what plans if any are in place.

The JDCSA Rally Committee has prepared some suggested routes / tours to get you to SA and provided these to your ACJC representatives. . . . . . . . . . . . If you require a copy of these suggestions or further assistance please CONTACT US.
